December Series: A prayer for SALVATION

Happy December! I am beginning a new series for this month. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday each week I am sharing a scripture and a prayer for those that are in bondage to human trafficking. Since Shelby and I are joining in Dressember again, I thought I would work harder at focusing on why I am doing Dressember.

I believe that none of the people in this life of slavery did anything to deserve it or ask for it and although they may never be physically saved from the bondage of their captors, I believe they can still be saved through faith. Join me in beginning December with a prayer for salvation for those enslaved. Salvation for their physical bodies as well as their spiritual hearts.

And it shall come to pass that everyone who calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. Acts 2:21

Dear Father,

we come before you in agony for those that have been captured and are being treated as less than human. God, our hearts, like yours RAGE at this viscous disease that plagues our world. You say in your word that everyone who calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

Father, we pray that those that are enslaved would call to you for salvation. We pray that they are freed from the life they are forced to live and that their hearts would be set free by the Blood of the Lamb.

Help them to come to you, to know you and your freedom and salvation.

Give them the opportunity to call on you and to know you.

Even in the midst of their slavery, help them to feel your salvation - to know how real and freeing it is.

And God, we pray for their captors. We pray that their eyes would be opened to the heinous things they do. We pray deep, burning conviction on their hearts - help them to know your salvation as well and to pass it on to their captives. Let their guilt and burden of wrong-doing move them to the release of their slaves.

Thank you for joining me in prayer today. The Bible says, "where two or three are gathered in my name, there I am with them." Matthew 18:20, let's rest in that and know that He has heard our cry and watch for ways that it is answered. Perhaps we'll never see, but maybe we will!

Until tomorrow,
