HE LIFTS US UP: ABUSE AWARENESS– Human Trafficking

Human trafficking is a form of modern-day slavery where people profit from the control and exploitation of others. Victims of human trafficking include children involved in the sex trade and adults age 18 or over who are coerced or deceived into commercial sex acts. Then, there is labor trafficking where some are forced into different forms of “labor or services,” such as domestic workers held in a home, or farm-workers forced to labor against their will.  Even human organs are trafficked. The factors that each of these situations have in common are elements of force, fraud, or coercion that are used to control people.  Then, that control is tied to inducing someone into commercial sex acts, or labor or services.  Numerous people in the field have summed up the concept of human trafficking as “compelled service.”  Every year, human traffickers generate billions of dollars in profits by victimizing millions of people around the world.  Human trafficking is considered to be one of the fastest growing criminal industries in the world.Trafficking Hotline

Sex trafficking is one of these forms of human trafficking and occurs when people are forced or coerced into the commercial sex trade against their will, including children.  Sex traffickers frequently target vulnerable people with histories of abuse and then use violence, threats, lies, false promises, debt bondage, or other forms of control and manipulation to keep victims involved in the sex industry.  Sex trafficking exists within the broader commercial sex trade, often at much larger rates than most people realize or understand.

Sex trafficking has been found in a wide variety of venues of the sex industry. Some use brothels, online escort services, or strip clubs. Others use fake businesses as a front, street prostitution, or hostess clubs. These victims are held against their will in dangerous situations.

Lord, You know the vast numbers of victims who are trapped in human trafficking around the world. You see it all. They are not hidden from You, Lord. Expose where they are. Expose these human trafficking groups and set all the captives free. We come together in prayer for all victims, that You will rescue them from their captors and bring healing and restoration to the multitudes… in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

  2. Until I went through our DV center, I had no idea that this happened to the extent that it does! Now I am tuned in to it and moved with compassion for those in bondage. I’m attaching a link to a wonderful effort in my area. I am about halfway through the book depicting the history of this ministry.

      Thank you my sister. I will check out this ministry. I thought of you the other day as I was reading my Jesus Calling Devotional. I read a few days back and my thoughts went to you and the situation that you commented about your new school. The May 23rd reading… Remember His ways are not our ways and He has placed “hidden treasures” on our path and as it says, some of these treasures are trials. He is going to deliver you from the “earth shackles” my sister. God bless you!

      • Interesting… I read the same devotional. God is moving me so fast I feel like I cant keep up… Ever feel like, when being set free, just not engaging in anything on this earth outside of what you know unquestionably in your heart to be God’s will? I am there…and I dont feel like I fit anywhere on earth. I am…..at a loss of words for it. You are a great blessing!

        I totally understand, my sister!! We are not of this world. He wants us to totally hold onto Him for every step and very breath. He is training you to just trust Him … It’s all about Him…

    I join in prayer with SecretAngel for the release of those who are trapped and can’t find their way out.
    Also that even in their physical bondage, the Light of the gospel will by the grace and glory of The Lord shine through to them and the love of God be shared abroad in their hearts. There is nothing more powerful than the Name of Jesus.

    If you have been to restaurants in cultural enclaves nearby, you may come across those who are serving or cooking or doing maintenance work and washing who may be trapped by human trafficking. Or you may visit a plantation or orchard. Look out perhaps as you pass them on the way to the washrooms. Give them a testimony tract and breathe the Name of Jesus over them and claim them for Jesus, that they will in miraculous ways, have the opportunity to be released from their bondage. Amen.

    Jesus is merciful, Jesus will save.
