13 Human Sexual Trafficking

14 Between 700,000 and 4,000,000 people are trafficked annually worldwide – many of these people are women and children who have been sexually trafficked.

15 Human Sexual Trafficking is a form of slavery. It is when human beings are sold and bought for the purposes of sexual exploitation.

16 Over the last 10 years, the numbers of women and children (who) have been trafficked have multiplied so that they are now on par with estimates of the numbers of Africans who were enslaved in the 16 th and 17 th centuries.” Laura Lederer, Harvard University, 2000

17 At least 2500 foreign women and girls are coerced into joining the Canadian sex trade each year by human traffickers.

18 There are also many Canadian women and girls being trafficked within Canada. Aboriginal women and girls are being trafficked at horrifying, and disproportionate rates.

19 Trafficking is always involuntary, because even when consent is achieved, it is only through some form of fraud or deception, abduction or abuse of power.

20 90% of people sexually trafficked or prostituted are women and girls. Most of these women come from the South and East.

21 “Whoever oppresses the poor shows contempt for their Maker, but whoever is kind to the needy honours God.” Proverbs 14:31

22 It is better to light one small candle than to curse the darkness. PLEASE PRAY!

23 Pray for trafficked people: For their safety For freedom & new life & hope & miracles For their peace, healing and restoration

24 Ephesians 3: “And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power... to grasp how wide and long and high is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge – that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.”

25 Pray for families For Safety For acceptance and forgiveness

26 Ephesians 6:12 “ For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.”

27 Pray for traffickers For their complete repentance, redemption and end to trafficking. For healing, healthy relationships, and justice

28 Pray for government leaders For meaningful commitments re: protection of trafficked persons and services for them For their compassion for the vulnerable For wisdom

29 Isaiah 61:1 - 4 “The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners… to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes… a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair.”

30 Pray for The Salvation Army, The Church & Faith-Based Groups Pray for passion, wisdom, safety, love, compassion, unity

31 Isaiah 58: 6 “Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen: to loose the chains of injustice and untie the cords of the yoke, to set the oppressed free and break every yoke?”

32 Let us join hands with our sisters and brothers and fight together to end Human Sexual T rafficking. He’s got the whole world in His hands!

33 A prayer for trafficked persons “The LORD bless you and keep you; the LORD make his face to shine on you and be gracious to you; the LORD turn his face toward you and give you peace.” Numbers 6:24-26

34 The Love of God Frederic M. Lehman; Meir Ben Isaac Nehorai © Copyright 1997 by Integrity’s Hosanna! Music and Word Music. The love of God is greater far than tongue or pen can ever tell; It goes beyond the highest star, And reaches to the lowest hell; The guilty pair, bowed down with care, God gave His Son to win; His erring child He reconciled, And pardoned from his sin.

35 The Love of God Frederic M. Lehman; Meir Ben Isaac Nehorai © Copyright 1997 by Integrity’s Hosanna! Music and Word Music. O love of God, how rich and pure! How measureless and strong! It shall forevermore endure The saints’ and angels’ song!

36 The Love of God Frederic M. Lehman; Meir Ben Isaac Nehorai © Copyright 1997 by Integrity’s Hosanna! Music and Word Music. Could we with ink the ocean fill And were the skies of parchment made, Were every stalk on earth a quill And every man a scribe by trade, To write the love of God above Would drain the ocean dry; Nor could the scroll contain the whole, Tho’ stretched from sky to sky.

38 Why should I be a slave to sin, To foes without or foes within? Sometimes I mount, sometimes cast down, Sometimes all smile, sometimes all frown. Why Should I be a Slave to Sin?

39 Chorus There's victory for me! Through the blood of the Lamb there is victory for me; He came to set his people free And give them perfect victory. Why Should I be a Slave to Sin?

40 Sin will abound till grace comes in, Then grace shall triumph over sin; Just now, dear Saviour, let it be, Now give me perfect victory. Why Should I be a Slave to Sin?

41 Chorus There's victory for me! Through the blood of the Lamb there is victory for me; He came to set his people free And give them perfect victory. Why Should I be a Slave to Sin?

42 Be thou my strength, be thou my all, Then surely I shall never fall; If none can pluck me from thy hand, I more than conqueror shall stand. Why Should I be a Slave to Sin?

43 Chorus There's victory for me! Through the blood of the Lamb there is victory for me; He came to set his people free And give them perfect victory. Why Should I be a Slave to Sin?

44 'Tis true I have no room to boast; When most I'm saved I'm humbled most; Kept low by grace, and not by sin, My soul shall make her boast in him. William Baugh ( ) Why Should I be a Slave to Sin? CCLI #

45 Chorus There's victory for me! Through the blood of the Lamb there is victory for me; He came to set his people free And give them perfect victory. Why Should I be a Slave to Sin?

46 Prayer for an end to Trafficking O God, our words cannot express what our minds can barely comprehend and our hearts feel when we hear of women and girls deceived and transported to unknown places for the purposes of sexual exploitation and abuse because of human greed and profit at this time in our world.

47 Prayer for an end to Trafficking Our hearts are saddened and our spirits angry that their dignity and rights are being transgressed through threats, deception and force. We cry out against the degrading practice of trafficking and pray for it to end.

48 Prayer for an end to Trafficking Strengthen the fragile-spirited and broken-hearted. Make real your promises to fill our sisters with a love that is tender and good and send the exploiters away empty-handed.

49 Prayer for an end to Trafficking Give us the wisdom and the courage To stand in solidarity with them so that together we will find ways for the freedom that is your gift to all of us. Prayer by School Sisters of Notre Dame from their Trafficking Reflection Booklet

50 Make Me A Servant Make me a servant, humble and meek, Lord let me lift up those who are weak. And may the prayer of my heart always be: Make me a servant, make me a servant, make me a servant today! CCLI#

51 We've a story to tell to the nations That shall turn their hearts to the right, A story of truth and mercy, A story of peace and light, A story of peace and light. We've a Story to Tell to the Nations

52 For the darkness shall turn to dawning, And the dawning to noonday bright, And Christ's great kingdom shall come to earth, The Kingdom of love and light. We've a Story to Tell to the Nations

53 We've a song to be sung to the nations That shall lift their hearts to the Lord, A song that shall conquer evil And shatter the spear and sword, And shatter the spear and sword. We've a Story to Tell to the Nations

54 For the darkness shall turn to dawning, And the dawning to noonday bright, And Christ's great kingdom shall come to earth, The Kingdom of love and light. We've a Story to Tell to the Nations

55 We've a message to give to the nations, That the Lord who reigneth above Hath sent us his Son to save us, And show us that God is love, And show us that God is love. We've a Story to Tell to the Nations

58 For the darkness shall turn to dawning, And the dawning to noonday bright, And Christ's great kingdom shall come to earth, The Kingdom of love and light. We've a Story to Tell to the Nations

59 Lord Jesus, it is better to light one candle than to give up hope and curse the darkness. It is better to save one stranger from deportation, and reunite one family, than to say that it is not our problem and we can’t do too much to help.

60 It is better to join hands in one work of love, than to sit on our hands and feel powerless.

61 Lord, help us to love you in the stranger and the refugee. Help us to love ourselves enough to believe that we can change things for the better. Help us to love as you have loved us. Amen.
