We invite you to a powerful time of worship and prayer as we walk one of the neighborhoods most known for sex trafficking in our city.
Ever since we began the exploration process of our work in 2007, prayer has been our foundation as a Coalition, and our talks with God have been the guiding force on this journey! We know it’s CRUCIAL to all we do as an extended faith community as we address human trafficking together.
If you’ve never come out on a prayer walk with us, you’ll receive some brief training, we’ll worship, and after we walk we will share about what we’ve observed and learned out on the streets.
To be honest, prayer can be hard.
For me personally, I like to plan, I like to take action, I like to have conversations all about new and innovative ways to bring an end to modern day slavery. But prayer can be a challenge. Yet from my years in ministry and working as an abolitionist, I know for a fact that I need to pray, and pray hard. The Christian community MUST pray, and the evil that is human trafficking will be best combated with efforts that are covered in prayer. I sincerely believe our Coalition would not be where we are today – in fact, we’d likely not even exist, if it weren’t for our constant commitment to seek God in prayer.
I am thankful we serve a God who designed prayer to be ACTIVE! I believe that time in prayer – whether in our own in our homes, in a chapel, or on the streets in a red light district – is often what God uses to MOVE US in step with his plans.
Will you be part of the movement?
