Intercessory Prayer

For survivors of human trafficking, that they might find the support they need to start a new life, we pray to the Lord.

For reflection

Helping someone escape from slavery is just a first step in their path toward healing. Often the survivor of human trafficking needs a community to support him/her. Victims may need help to pay off debts, secure housing, learn new skills and find and keep decent employment. Children may need a foster home to escape their abusers.

Call to action

Stop Human Trafficking and Exploitation. Protect, Help, Empower, and Restore Dignity (SHEPHERD) is a resource which educates lay and religious leaders about human trafficking from a Catholic perspective, equipping them with needed knowledge and skills to combat forced labor and commercial sexual exploitation at the local level.
