Pray for the Johns Day 2015: Feb. 8

Many good and noble efforts focus on addressing the problem of modern-day slavery, especially the needs of the exploited, yet the demand is seemingly insatiable. Initiatives focused on the needs and redemption of the exploiters are relatively rare.

Pray for the Johns Day is one small, humble effort to acknowledge the scale of the problem and ask God to intervene in the lives of those who participate in and support the sexual exploitation of others — both so that they may be halted in this evil, and redirected toward what good works they could yet do.

We look forward to praying with you on Feb. 8.
