Prayer to End Trafficking
Loving Father, We seek your divine protection for all who are exploited and enslaved. For those forced into labor, trafficked into sexual slavery and denied freedom. We beseech you to release them from their chains. Grant them protection, safety and empowerment. Restore their dignity and provide them a new beginning. Show us how we might end exploitation by addressing its causes. Help us reach out in support of victims and survivors of human trafficking. Making usinstruments of your spirit for their liberation. For this we pray through our Lord Jesus Christ who lives and reigns with you in the unity With the Holy Spirit, one God forever and ever.
