Intercessory Prayer

For children, especially those in our own community, who are vulnerable to human trafficking and slavery, that loving and caring adults may help them find safety and healing, we pray to the Lord.

For reflection

  • “It becomes easy for the trafficker to offer his own 'services' to the victims, who often do not even vaguely suspect what awaits them. In some cases, there are women and girls who are destined to be exploited almost like slaves in their work, and not infrequently in the sex industry too.” -- Pope Benedict XVI “Migration: A Sign of the Times,” Message for the World Day of Refugees and Migrants in 2006
  • One of every four victims of modern slavery are children.
  • Women and girls are disproportionately affected by forced labor, accounting for 99% of victims in the commercial sex industry and 58% in other sectors.

Call to action

Often children who are being trafficked or held in bondage are in plain sight: in our schools. Learn more about human trafficking in America's schools and how we can stop it.

Commercially Sexually Exploited Youth (CSEY) Advocacy is a critical component of the Texas approach to addressing child sex trafficking. Review this flyer more information on CSEY (pronounced “see-say”) Advocates
