International Weekend of Prayer and Fasting for Victims of Sexual Trafficking

The 5th Annual International Weekend of Prayer & Fasting for Victims of Sexual Trafficking will be taking place September 24-26, 2010.

The Salvation Army, the Initiative Against Sexual Trafficking (IAST), and the Faith Alliance Against Slavery and Trafficking (FAAST) invite you to join with them in observing the 5th annual International Weekend of Prayer and Fasting for Victims of Sexual Trafficking. You can join the observance by praying and fasting individually, and/or by organizing workplace or church-based events of prayer and fasting on behalf of those exploited in the commercial sex industry. Please join with us as we lift our petitions to God to free the captives and loose the chains of injustice.

“Is not this the fast that I choose: to loose the bonds of wickedness, to undo the straps of the yoke, to let the oppressed go free, and to break every yoke?”  (Isaiah 58:6)

“. . . praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication.”  (Ephesians 6:10-20)
