31 DAYS of PRAYER ... to END

TRAFFICKING

BE HER (THEIR) FREEDOM


I may have already shared this video along this journey to freedom for far too many but I like the title and decided that it is where I will leave this 31 Days of Prayer along with the following Freedom Challenge video links that took place ... Oct. 6th - 16th, 2013

... as I continue to PRAY to END this day by day for each victim. Note: I added 'THEIR' to this video title because 'HER' limits gender and sad to say this affects both genders, little boys are also be taken and sold. This video and others are available in many different languages from A21 Campaign (You Tube Channel)

Day 1 of Freedom Challenge (now past tense for the following)
"The A21 Campaign is holding a FREEDOM CHALLENGE where a team of brave and determined cyclists will ride through trafficking routes and mountainous regions from Sofia, Bulgaria, to London, UK. The purpose of this ride is to raise awareness both in countries where many young women and children are taken, as well as to raise $210,000 for The A21 Campaign shelters and victim assistance programs." ...
Together, we can see the injustice of human trafficking 
abolished in the 21st Century.
DAY 2
DAY 3
DAY 4
DAY 5
DAY 6
DAY 7
DAY 8
DAY 9
 DAY 10
The Route
WOW
this is truly 
aMazing
FREEDOM CHALLENGE
if they can "bike" all these days
through all these countries 
surely I (and you) can keep on praying

Some of their video footage was really treacherous territory, and if they rode through this on bikes, think how it must be for the people being trafficked too!

Daily their lives face treacherous trials and tribulations much worse and such fear.  

Let's KEEP PRAYING and get INVOLVED
in 
MAKING a DIFFERENCE
and
STOP 
THIS
NOW
Let's abolish injustice
in Jesus' name


"No one can do everything, but everyone can do something."
~A21 Campaign

Heavenly Father, How true these words are, but we cannot abolish this horrendous injustice without You. We need each other and we need You! Guide every organization that is doing their best on the frontlines to abolish injustice in the 21st century through a comprehensive system of preventative measures, victim protection, prosecution of violators, and strategic partnerships that support them. Keep us accountable! Let us not stop crossing treacherous enemy lines until each one is rescued and turned over to You. Father, continue to protect every victim and those in harm's way. Put a shield of protection around them. Save the innocence of so many of your children. Give wisdom to parents, communities and churches on how to prevent more be taken. Open the doors of heaven and hear the cries of your children. They need You desperately, and so do we! Please continue to weed out the evil and break out more good news of people being freed by Your power and the power of prayer. Continue the efforts of these organizations to defend
and combat all efforts to take captive Your dear children. May we fall on our knees and pray bold prayers to put an end to all injustices. Let us not grow weary or hopeless. We ask for You to make a way across the nations, in the governments, against the traffickers, throughout our communities, may we raise a banner of justice and freedom for all in Jesus' name.

DOCTRINES CONTRARY TO SCRIPTURE

There are man-made doctrines and there are doctrines of the Bible. All doctrines that are contrary to the Scriptures are man-made traditions. What did Jesus have to say about the traditions of men?

Mark 7:1-13....3...holding the traditions of the elders....7 And in vain they worship Me , Teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.8 "For laying aside the commandments of God, you hold the traditions of men---the washing of pitchers and cups, and many such things you do." 9 And He said to them, "All too well you reject the commandments of God, that you may keep your traditions.......13 "making the word of God of no effect through your tradition which you have handed down, And many such things you do.

Matthew 2:1 Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king behold, wise men from the East came to Jerusalem,
