January is Human Trafficking Awareness Month
Lord, open our ears to the cries of women,
men and children who have been denied
their rights and their dignity, who are
enslaved for the profit and use of others.
Give us wisdom that we may know how
best to serve and empower us to take
action and become instruments of your
peace so that the violence and
exploitation against our Sisters
and Brothers ends.
Comfort all those wounded in this
violent crime and embrace them
as they attempt to find healing.
by Maria Elena Perales from the
Southern Calif. Partners for Global Justice
