According to the A21 website, “There are more slaves in the world today than at any other point in human history, with an estimated 27 million in bondage across the globe. Men, women, and children are being exploited for manual and sexual labor against their will.”

WHAT?! How could this be happening! But it is, it is happening and it happening in our country, cities, neighborhoods! When I first heard of the A21 campaign at Catalyst Conference in Atlanta, GA. Christine Cain spoke of the many injustices not only around the world but right here at home too. I was shocked. I was pissed. I was motivated to do something. We can all do a little something to help stop this huge injustice: volunteer, donate money, but most importantly we can pray. We can come clean with God about our own sins, then humbly ask Him to intervene and kick slavery’s butt once and for all.
Please come along side me and my fellow ladies at proverbs31 ministries and pray for God to come through and end this injustice. Let’s pray friends, really pray.
Lord God, please be with those who are trapped in slavery right now. Please protect them and please put people who have the power to stop this in the pathway to put slavery in the ground forever. Please be with the victims, let them know you are there and that you care, Lord. Please help them heal. I ask Lord, that you put leaders in government that will end this grave injustice and bring peace and hope to all victims and families. In Jesus, Amen.
