Prayer to End Human Trafficking in Persons

From: the School Sisters of Notre Dame (Gen Cassani, SSND)

O God, our words cannot express what our minds can barely comprehend and our hearts feel when we hear of children and adults deceived and transported to unknown places for purposes of sexual exploitation and forced labor because of human greed.

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.

Strengthen the fragile-spirited and broken-hearted.
Make real your promises to fill these our sisters and brothers
with a love that is tender and good,
and send the exploiters away empty handed.

Give us the wisdom and courage to stand in solidarity with them,
that together we will find ways to the freedom that is your gift to all of us. Amen.
