There is no greater weapon against human trafficking than prayer.
"He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives, and recovery of sight to the blind, to set free those who are oppressed" Luke 4:18
Our 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 sex trafficking and commercial sexual exploitation in all parts of the world.
The truth is, Exodus Cry would not exist if it weren’t for prayer. Just a day and a half after our first human trafficking prayer meeting we witnessed a huge international child trafficking bust and this momentum formed the seed of what would later become Exodus Cry. Read the full story here.
Over the years the power of prayer 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 the Lord’s powerful works in response to prayer.
Every Monday, we help lead a worship and prayer meeting from 4pm-6pm CST in the International House of Prayer of Kansas City’s 24/7 prayer room, focusing on sex trafficking and sexual exploitation. You can join us by watching the live video stream at ihopkc.org/prayerroom or joining us there in person. Each session is also archived so if you can’t watch it live, you can tune into that prayer set at a later time here.
Many might be surprised to know that prostitution is legal in Israel and that it is, in fact, a hotbed of commercial sexual exploitation and trafficking. However Israel stands on the brink of a massive breakthrough concerning the issue of sex trafficking and commercial sexual exploitation.
There is a very promising opportunity in the coming months for the passage of an extremely important anti-prostitution law in the Knesset, which is Israel’s national legislature.
This law would criminalize the purchase of sex (demand) and provide services for women to exit prostitution, as in Sweden’s Nordic Model. The bill is called “The Criminal Prohibition of Consumption of Prostitution Services and Community Treatment Bill.”
