A prayer against human trafficking


#1

I would like to dedicate this prayer thread for the fight against human trafficking. The issue popped up in my mind so I wanted to post a thread. Please pray that all captives are set free (and get their justice and healing as well as safer, greener pastures to rebuild their lives) and that such atrocities such as this and others may be stopped and prevented. Please pray that our legislative leaders may take action against this and that survivors and victims get the support they need.

O Blood and Water, which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus as a fountain of Mercy for us, I trust in You!

Our Father, Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name; Thy kingdom come; Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil, Amen.

Hail Mary, full of grace. The Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou amongst women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death, Amen.

Eternal Father, I offer you the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Your Dearly Beloved Son, Our Lord, Jesus Christ, in atonement for our sins and those of the whole world.

For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world. x10

Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, have mercy on us and on the whole world.

And it is far more prevalent than people realize. Wherever there is poverty or drug abuse there is most likely something exchanged for sex.

Heavenly Father, you gave us the great example of St. Josephine Bakhita and blessed her with an open heart full of charity. Help me to be forgiving to others as she was.

St. Josephine Bakhita, you were a slave and you didn’t have any rights. Intercede for victims of human trafficking and those suffering silently in any kind of slavery. May their captors free them and may this evil be erased from the face of the Earth.

Help us to be thankful for our freedom and to know that we are only truly free through our faith in the Lord. St. Josephine Bakhita, please pray for us and ask God to grant these our intentions.

Holy St. Josephine Bakhita, you lived an extraordinary life of pain, suffering and slavery but you did not allow your trials to define your life. You chose to have an open and joyful heart and follow the truth of Jesus Christ. Intercede for us so that Christ may live joyfully in our hearts as he lived in yours. It is through your extraordinary witness that many people have overcome obstacles and have come to the Christian faith. May your intercession continue to transform the faith of people forever.
Amen

Saint Michael, the archangel, defend us in battle, be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil, may God rebuke him, we humbly pray. And do you, O’ Prince of the Heavenly host, by the power of God thrust into Hell Satan and all the other evil spirits who prowl about the world for the ruin of souls.

Amen.


Our Father who art in Heaven, hallowed be thy name.

Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.

And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

Amen.

Prayer to End Trafficking

Loving Father,
We seek Your divine protection for all who are exploited
and enslaved. For those forced into labor, trafficked into
sexual slavery, and denied freedom, we beseech You
to release them from their chains. Grant them protection,
safety, and empowerment. Restore their dignity and provide
them a new beginning. Show us how we might end
exploitation by addressing its causes.Help us reach out
in support of victims and survivors of human trafficking.
Make us instruments of Your spirit for their liberation.

For this we pray through our Lord Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns
with You in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen.

– United States Council of Catholic Bishops
