From World Vision:
Jesus, we come to You humbled by the struggles many girls face every day. Restore them to trusting relationships and self-confidence. Inspire leaders to create policies that address the causes of sexual exploitation and forced labor.
Lord, we pray for the children, especially the girls who have been subjected to violence and exploitation but have been able to escape from their situation. We pray that you help heal them and strengthen them. Help their families to understand and embrace them, recognizing that they are still precious and valued.
Dear God, help those children who have been hurt. We pray that they will be able to find assistance in healing their minds and bodies. Through every nightmare or ache, we pray that you will be with them, to look over them and protect them.
Dear God, there are times when it is right—and righteous—to be angry. It is right to be angry about people who sexually exploit children. Let that righteous anger fuel action, Lord. Don’t let it fade into complacency.
