PRAYER POINTS FOR JANUARY
January is National Human Trafficking Awareness month.
As our prayer focus for January, I’d like to start by sharing a verse from the Bible.
Habakkuk 2:2-3 says And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain (clear) upon tables, that he may run that read it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.
Do you have a vision for 2020? What are you passionate about? What moves your heart the most? This is key in helping to know the direction of God’s purpose for your life. No one is without a God-given destiny to fulfill. The Bible says that without vision, the people perish. God also says He has a plan for our lives, to prosper us and give us a hope and a future. When our lives have vision and purpose, we have hope and a future to look forward to.
Our 2020 theme for this year’s Gala is ‘20/20 From Shackles to Stilettos – See the Vision, Join the Mission’. God has given The Red Cord a vision to help end human trafficking through education, training, prayer and supporting those who are fighting with us. We see that raising awareness leads to prevention and rescue.
Would you pray for the following?
1) Ask God to make His vision for you clear on what your primary passion and purpose is, in this season of your life. If it includes being a part of The Red Cord, ask Him to show you how you can contribute (a skill, a platform, finances, partnering in prayer? ….) Seek us out and ask questions if need be.
2) Would you pray for us and the many organizations that are fighting human trafficking, that God would direct our steps according to His will and timing, and that we would be adequately equipped with the skills and provision needed to accomplish our goals. Pray that we would be strengthened and protected as we continue in the mission.
3) Pray for our communities to catch the vision, get educated, and be determined to protect their neighborhoods where human trafficking will not be tolerated.
3) And last but not least, please continue to pray for the many victims that have yet to be rescued, and for the rescued survivors in their healing process. Pray that justice would be served in the taking down of every sex and human trafficking operation, that their supply lines would be cut off and that recompense and retribution would be meted out accordingly.
Thank you. We appreciate and covet your prayers as we continue in this fight together.
For the vision awaits an appointed time; it testifies of the end, and will not lie. Though it lingers, wait for it, since it will surely come and not delay.…
