Prayers of the People

PrayHuman trafficking is the slavery of our time. Women who have been trafficked often have been subjected to profound trauma, both physical and mental. They also face social rejection, discrimination and humiliation in their own society and in the one for which they are forced to work. In our communities, there are urgent needs and great opportunities to provide these women with various forms of assistance. It may be just a smile or small gift to let them know they are not forgotten, or it can take the form of health care, occupational training or emotional support.

In Strasbourg, France, a group of international women from local churches have joined together through “The Difference” international women’s ministry. This group of women aims to recognize the difference God makes in their individual lives and then to make a difference in the lives of others. One of the differences they are making in the local community is to reach out and minister to the prostitutes who work the streets. This “ladies-in-waiting” ministry has already made an impact in the lives of over 30 prostitutes coming from the countries of Bulgaria, Hungary, Romania, France, Ghana and Nigeria.

Please pray for the “ladies-in-waiting” ministry. Pray specifically for the prostitutes who have found themselves trafficked or trapped in this profession and for the women working to make a difference through this ministry.
