Our journey in the fight against slavery has taken us deep into the heart and emotions of God. We have lifted our voices to him in intercession, and seen Him move in miraculous and powerful ways in response to our prayers. God has led us in each step of this incredible journey, from first introducing us to this injustice when we were totally oblivious, to tearing down corrupt government and child brothels half a world away. The God of the Exodus, the Lord God who frees the oppressed and liberates the captives, who plunders the treasures of darkness—He is still alive and moving in the earth today. –Benjamin Nolot, Founder and CEO of Exodus Cry

Rio de Janeiro: God Answered our Prayers for Justice

Brazil’s capital, Rio de Janeiro, was our City in Focus back in March 2014. We asked for your prayers as the city prepared to host seven of the 2014 FIFA World Cup matches. Like other international sporting events, the World Cup is widely suspected as a breeding ground for sexual exploitation. Rio has an established sex trade in its Copacabana district, so Brazilian officials and human rights advocates were concerned...

Eight Brothels Shut down before the World Cup

In April 2014, we asked for your prayers for Fortaleza, Brazil. Fortaleza, the fifth largest city in Brazil, is known for its pristine beaches and lurid sex tourism industry. The city’s newest claim to fame is the Castelão stadium, which served as one of the venues for the 2014 FIFA World Cup. With an anticipated 600,000 international soccer fans crowding Fortaleza’s city streets during the games, abolitionists and human rights...

Brazil Breakthrough

In light of the 2014 FIFA World Cup taking place in Brazil this summer, much of our prayer focus has been centered on this South American country and its host cities. We know that large sporting events like the World Cup create a venue for the sale and purchase of sex, so for a year we have been asking God to initiate a breakthrough in human trafficking in Brazil. In...

Victory in Spain

This summer, we witnessed a powerful victory in Spain. In May, our city in focus was Barcelona. We deliberately prayed for revival in Barcelona and throughout Spain. In June, news reached the world that a prostitution ring had been broken up after Spanish police arrested six people, including one woman who is believed to be the ringleader.1 In this case, traffickers used common methods of deception to lure unsuspecting women...

Changing Tides in the Netherlands

In March of this year, we chose Amsterdam in the Netherlands as our city in focus. We have been monitoring this region carefully and have received news of powerful testimony in Utrecht, a city only 45 minutes away from Amsterdam. The purchase of sex is a legal activity in the Netherlands. The use of brothels was prohibited until 2000 when they were legalized in an attempt to better monitor prostitution...

The Testimony of Prayer: South Asia

In March of this year, the Exodus Cry team was two weeks away from launching the next Regional Prayer Focus when Benjamin Nolot was told of a dream about a faceless “king of Bengal” and a room of girls who were being enslaved (you can read the details of the dream here).

8,000 Missing Bengal Girls

This March, Benjamin Nolot was informed of a dream about the region of West Bengal. In the dream, the person having the dream was shown the inside of the king of Bengal’s bedroom. There was a large four-poster bed in the middle of the room, and it was evident that multiple girls had already been there and more were currently in the room “waiting.” Cup holders containing the filth of...

She went missing shortly after the discovery. Having prayed for her at one of our staff meetings, our prayers were answered! We received news that the young girl was found by the police and returned to her family. Please join us in prayer...

Largest Metropolitan City in Kathmandu

The capital city of Nepal, Kathmandu, is the largest metropolitan city in the country with a population of more than a million, and is home to many young girls who go missing every day. A fourteen-year-old girl recently went missing for five days after supposedly being promised a job and a house in Kathmandu. During that week, our Prayer Watch Coordinator was informed of the situation, and our staff, along...
