[ePrayer – Pray for India’s Candlelight Vigil for Stopping Human Trafficking]
India is the origin, in-transit, as well as the destination country of adults and children subjected to forced labour and sex trafficking. The Ministry of Home Affairs in India estimates that 90 percent of the victims in sex trafficking are locals. Many NGOs also observe that human trafficking is increasing in the areas in which they work.
Churches of India held a candlelight vigil in Delhi on 12 December, asking God to bring an end to all forms of human trafficking and to restore the freedom and dignity of millions.
Pray for the Current Situation of Human Trafficking in India:
- May our God have mercy on the victims, let them receive the real freedom and protection, and their total-being be healed.
- May our God direct the believers in every area to work together, live as the light and salt in this unjust and poor society, and bring God’s love to the victims.
- May all human beings have “the image of God” restored, that everybody respect and treasure each other.
