Prayers from Berlin
Is not this the fast that I choose: to loose the bonds of wickedness, to undo the straps of the yoke, to let the oppressed go free, and to break every yoke?
As you pray for Berlin, please include the similar challenges in you own city.
Human Trafficking in Berlin. The issue of human trafficking is a global issue of injustice. Although not limited to sexual exploitation, the area of sex trafficking is a large part of this issue. Berlin is on the consumer end of this global problem. Prostitution is legal in Berlin and it is estimate that there are around 6,000 prostitutes in the city. A large majority of prostitutes are controlled within the trafficking industry.
Please pray for the awareness of this issue in the local church; pray for the small handful of groups compassionately serving in this area; and pray for a tightening of laws to limit this global problem.
