We’ve come off a week of talking about difficult issues relating to human enslavement. I thought we would end the week by praying a prayer together on behalf of the millions who are enslaved around the world. Please join me:
“Lord Jesus Christ we pray that You will grant to the people of this nation and all nations the will to do good, to flee from evil, and to practice all righteousness, making us respectful of life and sharers of Your blessings, caring for one another in mercy and truth.
Remove all evil from our hearts and wickedness from the laws of lands that allow human slavery and enable women and children to be trafficked. Give us the courage to be servants of Your holy will and performers of Your Love by what we do and not just what we say.”
Kindle in our hearts the will to care for the needy, to show kindness to the poor, to aid the homeless and help the helpless. As we have freely received your love and grace, help us to freely give to those in need. Amen.”
