February 13th starts 40 Days for Freedom, a prayer journey to end global trafficking. We encourage you to use this resource developed by TraffickFree Pomona for daily reflections and prayers on the problem around the world. As followers of Jesus, we worship a God who loves justice and who will free the enslaved. God has called us to “seek justice, rescue the oppressed, defend the orphan, and plead for the widow” (Isaiah 1:17). Oasis USA’s TraffickFree Community movement seeks to end trafficking one community at a time. We will achieve this by empowering local people to unite together and to make it too hot for a trafficker to operate in their locality. Join us on a 40-day prayer journey as we seek God on behalf of human trafficking victims for rescue, restoration, and hope.
We will follow the Lenten calendar, which lasts 40 days in commemoration of the 40 days which Jesus spent fasting in the desert before the beginning of his public ministry. We will pray from Ash Wednesday (February 13) until Easter Eve (March 30).
