Praying for Human Trafficking

WE BELIEVE
The most powerful weapon of warfare is prayer. When we stand united, we can see God’s justice run like a river (Amos 5:24).

Make a commitment to stand together with us in prayer. Please keep this prayer guide in your bible as a reminder to join with us in this fight for freedom. You can print a copy here.
