FREEDOM 21 Day 1


Today we will focus our prayer and repentance on our own apathy regarding human trafficking.
Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. –Proverbs 31:8


Human trafficking is defined as the illegal trade of human beings, for the purposes of commercial sexual exploitation or forced labor.
Here are some facts:


Sadly, we as the Body of Christ have remained largely apathetic to this despicable injustice that transpires right here in the United States and Mexico. We have either not been aware enough to confront the evils of trafficking or have not cared enough to fight for the rights of those who are trapped in this form of modern day slavery.
However, the Lord is calling the Church now to repent for our apathy and to rise up with a justice anointing to contend for those whom He loves, those being exploited for pleasure and labor in our two great nations and around the world.

Lord, I repent if my heart has been apathetic or if I have been too concerned with my own comfort and convenience to truly see the urgency of this issue. I ask forgiveness if I have been indifferent and inactive while lives are being tormented and ended.


God, as Your body and Your children, we repent for seeing this as someone else’s problem to solve instead of engaging in it ourselves. We repent for selfishness, indifference, and apathy. Anoint and empower us to confront and stop human trafficking in the United States and Mexico!
