Yesterday was the “World Day Against Trafficking in Persons.” This year, they focused on those on the front line… from nurses and doctors, to non-governmental staff and social workers.
Honestly, I don’t know what to write. How can we begin to celebrate and encourage those who are fighting on the front lines of human trafficking? I myself want to go into this field as a social worker, working with domestic abusing and all that goes along with it…
I think one thing I would like to say is a huge “Thank You” to the men and women who are fighting Boko Haram, and the people now working with the Chibok girls to help mend their broken, traumatized hearts and minds. The process of healing comes from Jesus, through such workers, to heal these men, women, and children—and to give them a fighting chance at living in wholeness and victory over the traumas they have been apart of.
Jesus, thank You for those who want to give of their lives to help those in human trafficking situations. Please help them to not get weary or burnt out, as can happen. Give them a new vigor and vision for why they do what they do… and may it all be done in Your Name.
In Jesus’ Name we pray,
Do you know Jesus?
Each one of these people are precious in His Sight. Learn more about Jesus, and why He came to do what He did, here.
Please pray for (find the prayer sheet here):
- Social workers working with trafficked victims.
- Police officers controlling human trafficking.
- For NGOs who are working against human trafficking.
- For the Chibok girls: their healing, and healing for those who have been stolen & trafficked by Boko Haram.
