Today we are asking the Lord to deal with the sleeping church.
Personal RepentanceFather God, forgive me for my indifference towards those entrapped by human trafficking. I repent for not being awake and alert to the injustice that is going on around me.
Corporate RepentanceForgive Your Church, Lord, for turning a blind eye to the women and children who are caught in this dark place of depravity right in our own backyard. Instead of calling out to You day and night in prayer, asking for strategies to deliver these victims, we have become too paralyzed to bring about any change. Forgive us for our apathy, unbelief, and unwillingness to engage in abolishing the atrocity of this modern day slavery.
- Lord, we ask You to awaken us and all of Your Church to the horrific issues of sex trafficking. Even as Your heart is broken over this injustice, may our hearts be broken, too. Today with thousands of Christians from two nations, we pray that the Church would arise from her complacency and boldly lead the way in the fight for freedom from sex slavery.
- We pray for an awakening of conviction upon the Church regarding this issue, a movement that would gain Holy Spirit-breathed momentum in our two nations to end this horrific plague. We pray that the Church would give liberally and lavishly of her time, talents, and resources, forming a coalition with individual churches and organizations to rescue victims and fight for an end to sex trafficking.
- We acknowledge the Gospel message holds the power to change hearts and, as a result, change culture. We pray, therefore, that the message of Jesus Christ would sweep our two nations, transforming hearts, delivering captives, and bringing people to abundant life.
