PRAYER REQUESTS: Please stand in the gap with us for God to complete the good work He has begun in the lives of the women and youth we have influence in. The journey to healing is often a very painful process that many will not commit to preferring to run and return the captivity they were delivered out of. Please pray for strength, wisdom and perseverance for leadership and first response workers interacting with the victims of human trafficking and the sex industry. Send your prayer requests to: email@example.com We have prayer teams ready & willing to stand in the gap for your needs as well.
THECALL2XXX: Global unified prayer for the victims of commercialized sexual exploitation, human trafficking and the organizations providing services to them is every Friday 8-9am EST. Please join us. For prayer guide, CLICK HERE
