Human Trafficking

God, you do see; you see every trouble, every cause for grief; you will hear the desire of the meek; you will strengthen their heart, you will incline your ear to do justice for the orphan and the oppressed, so that those from earth may strike terror no more. ~ Psalm 10

God of life, truth and freedom, we come into your presence and ask you to hear us as we pray...

For child laborers, child soldiers and children exploited in pornography, we pray:
Liberate them from oppression.

For young girls and women exploited on the streets:
Liberate them from oppression.

For all men, women and children enslaved, betrayed and abandoned:
Liberate them from oppression

That the perpetrators and organizers of human trafficking turn away from their unjust ways, we pray:
May justice reign in our day.

That the millions of people trafficked will experience freedom:
May justice reign in our day.

That government leaders, corporate directors and all that serve the public will address the systems that make human trafficking possible:
May justice reign in our day.

We believe in hope that working together as a community we can Stop the Demand for human trafficking:
We come as a people of hope.

We are strengthened by what we have learned and commit to act on behalf of justice:
We come as a people of hope.

We are chosen, we are called and we are committed to Stop the Demand and end human trafficking:
We come as a people of hope.

God, give us the wisdom and courage to stand in solidarity, so that together we will find ways to the freedom that is your gift to all of us. Amen.
