The Weekend of Prayer To End Slavery and Trafficking
The Weekend of Prayer represents a group of abolitionist from across the US who believe that we can best fight this scourge of evil through prayer and wisdom from God. It is fitting that people of faith exercise leadership in taking a stand against human trafficking, which we believe is the greatest human rights issue in the world today. Religious leaders in the 18th and 19th centuries (including William Wilberforce, John Wesley, Arthur Tappen, Theodore Weld, Harriet Tubman, Josephine Butler, Katherine Bushnell and Frederick Douglass) led the fight to end slavery in their times, just as religious leaders have historically led the fight for civil rights in this country. We are calling YOU—in your role as leader—to consider for yourself the question posed in the Book of Esther:

“For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for [those oppressed] will arise from another place,
but you and your father's family will perish. And who knows but that you have come to
[your position of leadership] for such a time as this?”

Please commit to joining the National Weekend of Prayer, January 11-13, 2013
(January 11 has been designated by Congress as Human Trafficking Awareness Day.)

We are asking clergy and congregations in every community in our nation to join together in this nation-wide prayer initiative. We hope you will be led to participate, to put the power of prayer in action to help free modern day slaves and even to offer redemption to the traffickers.
