Annual Day of Prayer for Victims of Human Trafficking 2015

Every year, The Salvation Army commits to praying for those experiencing human trafficking. Specifically on September 27th, Salvationists unite to pray for victims of Human Trafficking. The theme is ‘We Will Not Be Silent’ and is based on Isaiah 42:22 (NLT).

But his own people have been robbed and plundered,
    enslaved, imprisoned, and trapped.
They are fair game for anyone
    and have no one to protect them,
    no one to take them back home’.

Below you will find resources that can be used to assist individuals, small groups and congregations engage in the prevention of human trafficking.

Just Salvos and The Freedom Partnership have collaborated to produce an Australian Resource kit for the Annual Day of Prayer for Victims of Human Trafficking. It includes educational information, prayer resources, biblical reflections and a list of practical responses.
