Pray for the Johns Day was launched in 2012 as the fruit of more than three years' participation in a fast-and-prayer initiative focused on relational brokenness between men and women, and an even longer exposure to various people and organizations responding to human and especially sex trafficking.

Many good and noble efforts are focused 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.
