Day Thirteen

Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everybody. If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. Do not take revenge, my friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: ‘It is mine to avenge; I will repay,’ says the Lord. ~Romans 12:17-19

Stormy Valley
It is so difficult to hear the horror stories of trauma, violence and degradation that our survivor friends have faced and NOT want to take revenge on the one who caused it! But we are reminded to leave it to the One more powerful than us. Vengeance is not our job. What if, instead, we prayed for the traffickers and buyers? If a nation of faithful, praying people ask the Lord to change their hearts, can we make a dent in the prevalence of those who seek to exploit our children? Let’s find out.

Prayer focus:

  • For traffickers’ and buyers’ hearts and actions to change.
  • The Lord to remove the scales from their eyes so traffickers and buyers can see their destructive behavior and turn from it.
