CVJC invites ALL our partners to pray and fast this week to prevent human trafficking on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday (October 17-19, 2018).

Please see our recent brochure on Prayer and Fasting for more background and direction on how to fast if this is new for you! (this was developed from a publication provided by our Freedom Church, Northpark, editted slightly for Fresno First Baptist by our staff in 2016)


Specific things we are praying for (just a few):

  • our whole team to have spiritual and mental clarity in the day to day decisions we make, especially now
  • our Director Ryan and his family as they’ve had a challenging couple months, particularly with their health as a family. It’s affecting them and our team today
  • for victims, survivors and all affected by human trafficking – the reason we do our work: for protection, freedom, and love to break through: people will experience God’s grace and truth wherever they are
  • we will keep God the center of our work, and trust him no matter what
  • for God to release financial resources, specifically $30K by Friday, October 19th.
  • God to open doors and confirm plans for our youth programs, specifically in Fresno’s juvenile justice system

Contact us for more info.
