How to PRAY for VICTIMS of human trafficking

How to PRAY for GOVERNMENT & LAW Enforcement

Last week we focused on prayer for VICTIMS. This week we focus on Church & Community Partners.

Our Church and Community Partners need our prayers. We are currently partnered with several organizations in the community such as the Boys and Girls Clubs, Serenity Women’s Shelter, and Hosea’s Heart, to name a few. In addition to these, we have churches who have agreed to partner with us. We at Street Hope know the Lord has graciously placed others around us to help get the word out about DMST and to join in the battle.

Our community partners represent organizations who deal with at risk children and vulnerable families, those who are possible victims due to situations outside of their control. We want to be faithful in being thankful for their work and in praying for them.

In James 5: 13-18 James instructs the church to be faithful in prayer. Seven times in six verses, he says to pray. James ends this section by reminding the reader that Elijah was an ordinary man, like us, and his bold prayers were heard and answered.

If my people who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land. (II Chronicles 7:14).

Will you pray with us this week for our partners and God’s healing of our land from this dark atrocity of DMST taking place in the lives of our children?

How to pray for Church & Community Partners

  • Pray that in each organization the staff members would be discerning, caring and honest.
  • Pray for mothers who are in shelters to persevere and make good choices in order to provide the safest possible environments for their children.
  • Pray for numerous volunteers over the summer months to help care for and love children who are possibly at risk.
  • Pray for children’s ministries across the city as they prepare wisely for summer activities.
  • Pray for Hosea’s Heart as they serve and minister to the women in the sex industry of Knoxville, a large percentage of those having children who are subsequently at risk for trafficking.
  • Pray for the Truckstop Ministries to have open eyes and ears in watching for children who have potentially been victimized.
  • Pray for our church partners to remain actively involved in educating their congregations to the truth about sex trafficking.
  • Pray for our church partners to openly love and give grace to single moms and families that could be at risk.
  • Join us also in thanking the Lord for each of our church and community partners.

Thank you for your boldness in prayer!
