Nefarious: Merchant of Souls
by Exodus Cry
There are more slaves in the world now than at the height of the slave trade in the 18th and 19th centuries. You have likely even seen some of them. Sadly, people from all walks of life willingly participate in the commercial sexual exploitation of others. Of the global millions enslaved today, experts estimate that 80 percent are trapped in sex trafficking and 70 percent are women or children. It’s time to do something about this.
Few of us are equipped to take down an underground criminal enterprise, but all of us can pray. God calls us to stand against what the Apostle Paul called the spiritual forces of evil behind this human exploitation. We can speak out against sexual exploitation in all forms throughout our culture, whether at pornography shops, strip clubs, or in sexualized media.
We have tremendous power when we stand together and even greater power when we appeal to the King of all Kings on these matters.
Please join us this month for a ten-day campaign of prayer for victims of sex trafficking.
