31 DAYS of PRAYER ... ROOT CAUSES

Continuing to join P31 Ministries with Lysa TerKeurst and A21 Campaign with Christine Caine in Day 17 of their "31 Days of Prayer" - however it's a different day with the Nester's 31 Day Writing Challenge

The 31 Day PRAYER CAMPAIGN began with Lysa and Christine on Sept. 23rd back here to join them in prayer. This is their button and here is Lysa's blog, pdf on the prayer plan and you can find prayers interspersed on her Facebook to continue praying along with them to ENDING TRAFFICKING.


We started with Prayers for the Victims, then the Traffickers, Governments and today is Day 15 as we start praying against the ROOT CAUSES: poverty, greed, prejudice

Day 15-18 Pray for Root Causes
Oct.7-10
[so this same post will be repeated for these 4 days]
with the prayer added on that day


PRAY FOR THE ROOT CAUSES

Day 15 (Oct.7) 
Against poverty: Proverbs 14:21, Isaiah 58:7, Isaiah 61:1

Day 16 (Oct.8): 
Against greed: Joel 3:3-6, Luke 12:15, 1 Timothy 6:10a

Day 17 (Oct.9)
Against prejudice: Genesis 1:27, Psalm 45:9, Galatians 3:28

"Dear Lord, today we're praying against prejudice, one of the root causes of human trafficking. Father, we are so grateful to be Your children, created in Your image. Let this truth be spread throughout every part of the world. We're specifically praying Genesis 1:27, Psalm 45:9, and Galatians 3:28 right now:

- Genesis 1:27, "So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them."

- Psalm 45:9, "Daughters of kings are among your honored women; at your right hand is the royal bride in gold of Ophir."

- Galatians 3:28, "There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus."

In Your Powerful Name we pray, Amen."


Day 18 (Oct.10)

Lord, Jesus, as I pray for the A21 Campaign today, my heart breaks at the reality that every 30 seconds another human becomes a victim of human trafficking. This is a massive, horrible reality. I am but one person but Lord, You promise my prayers are powerful and effective. 

Forgive us Lord, for the innumerous acts from these root causes that have allowed this atrocity to take captive so many women and children and men. Bring a repentance to the hearts of all involved and to those of us, who can do something but don't because we believe we are helpless against such forces of evil. Yet we are not as Your Word declares. Help us to take a stand and make a difference.

So, I stand today together with others and ask that power and effectiveness be unleashed in the war against sex trafficking today. Help the A21 Campaign and the others fighting against this atrocity to see results like they’ve never seen in the history of their ministry today as my prayers, our prayers, do serious battle on behalf of those in desperate need. In God’s Powerful Name we pray, Amen

Mission 4 Monday sadly ended last year as a meme, but I continue to share here and I know others also share various MISSIONS, especially the people above. Check them out!!! Encourage and perhaps join us.
Since my life is a MISSION, I share whenever I can. There are many of you, who do community involvement/church events, volunteer opportunities or know missionaries that you could share to motivate others. Motherhood and Homeschooling are MISSIONS and callings!!!
Each of these are MISSIONS and important to encourage others.
If you are doing something or share someone's MISSION on your blog, please leave your info in the comments anytime! Hopefully others will notice & come visit. THANKS!
