Prayer Guide for Human Trafficking


Taking on the heart of advocacy for the crushed and oppressed can be overwhelming, even in prayer.

It is easy to feel like the problem is just too big!  I get it.  Sometimes I wonder how my prayers could possibly make a difference.  But I think that if Jesus can feed the crowd of 5000 with 5 loaves of bread and 2 fish, our prayers can attack, with power and might even this problem.

So, here are some practical ways you can be praying for the cause of Human Trafficking. 

  • Pray for God to protect the rescuers.
  • Pray for God to save those being rescued.
  • Pray for the men who traffic the girls to repent and receive Jesus.
  • Pray for the gospel witness in the darkest places where human trafficking exists.
  • Pray for God to burden our hearts to go help victims of human trafficking when it is possible.
  • Pray for God to give tender hearts to our state leaders for the victims of sexual exploitation and human trafficking.
  • Pray for the women in our state who are vulnerable to sexual exploitation to find safe and legal employment.
  • Pray for God to raise up volunteers
  • Pray for city wide prayer movements in every city in the United States for victims of human trafficking.
  • Pray for God to dismantle trafficking rings.
  • Pray for madams and housemothers who run massage parlors. Pray their hearts would be broken and they would turn to Jesus.
  • Pray for God to bring awareness to poverty stricken countries of tricks used to lure women into human trafficking.
  • Pray for the families of the victims of trafficking, and pray for the rescue of the victims
  • Pray for our churches to get involved in the issue of human trafficking and sexual exploitation.

Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened (Matthew 7:7)
