Prevention › Prayer
Our prevention work begins and ends with Jesus Christ. We believe that Jesus has come to set the captives free (Luke 4:18), and we are praying daily for the end of human trafficking in all parts of the world.
There is no greater weapon against human trafficking than prayer.
This truth has been proven to us many times as we have rallied supporters and joined in prayer with friends from all across the United States and around the globe. From the rescue of those enslaved to the closing of brothels to the restoration of young women who are now free, we have seen His powerful works in response to prayer.
Every month we chose a city from around the nations on which to focus our prayers. These cities are chosen for their high volumes of trafficking or because we see a need to raise awareness about an issue hidden from the general population. Each week, we gather with hundreds of abolitionists from around the world to pray for an end to sex trafficking. You can join us, whether alone or with a group, LIVE at 8pm CST.

In reality, Las Vegas has one of the worst human trafficking problems in the nation, with three times the number of juvenile arrests as New York City. And every day, hundreds of young women–many as young as 13 and 14 years old–are exploited by pimps and johns.

1. Father, we ask that you would protect each child who is living on the streets in Las Vegas. Would you place them in families and set them in the safety for which they yearn.
2. God, we ask that the anti-trafficking efforts that are taking place in Las Vegas would be successful and that local law enforcement would be able to see the crime and stop it from happening.
3. Jesus we are asking for new anti-trafficking legislation in Las Vegas that would foster the protection of women and children and curb the demand for commercial sex.
