At Revive, we pause today to pray for an end to Human Trafficking.  Today, February 8th is a special day set aside to pray this intention.

Today is the 7th International Day of Prayer and Awareness against Human Trafficking.

The theme chosen for 2021 is “An Economy without Human Trafficking.” It brings into the spotlight “one of the main causes of human trafficking: the dominant economic model of our time, whose limits and contradictions are exacerbated by the Covid-19 pandemic,” reads a statement on the organization’s website.

This 7th International Day of Prayer and Awareness, it says, “is an invitation to multiply and promote new economic experiences that oppose all forms of exploitation.”

How to Participate:

This year an online Marathon of Prayer has been organized due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. It will take place on Monday from 10 am to 5 pm CET. There will also be a moment of prayer all together at 1 pm CET. It will be attended by all the Talitha Kum networks around the world, divided into blocks according to continents.

Individuals can support the World Day through the official hashtag #PrayAgainstTrafficking.

The online Prayer Marathon will be live-streamed on YouTube. Further information is available on the International Day of Prayer and Awareness against Human Trafficking website.

At Revive, we also want to share this video with you with some surprising statistics to be aware of related to the reality of human trafficking.

Together, with prayer, we can make a difference.

God Bless,

Dan Rutt
