Day Five

“But I call to God, and the Lord saves me. Evening, morning and noon I cry out in distress, and he hears my voice. He ransoms me unharmed from the battle waged against me, even though many oppose me.” ~Psalm 55:16-18

David wrote this Psalm at a time when his safety was threatened. He was no stranger to severe danger, and neither are trafficked victims. Research indicates that trafficking victims can face Post Traumatic Stress Disorder because of the intense, prolonged period of danger and fear they endure during their trafficking experience. Danger eagerly awaits them at the hands of a violent pimp, aggressive buyers, and even law enforcement agents can elicit fear for victims.

Prayer focus:

  • The protection and safety of sex trafficking victims.
  • The safety of those who seek to rescue victims of trafficking.
