Weekly Devotional

Pornography and Sex Trafficking

This week's focus: Media

The vile and perverted images that fill the internet are grounds for us to shut down the whole system and render it unbeneficial for the consumption of American society. However, the manifestation of pornography, which fuels the sex trafficking industry, is a sad reflection of the desires of the hearts of Americans. The Internet is not bad in and of itself; it is the people who have chosen to pervert this medium that clearly show where the problem lies. Shutting down the system may help temporarily, but it’s our hearts and our minds that need healing so that we as a society do not crave and perpetuate these vile practices. Pray for revival in the hearts of Americans. Pray that we will return to our first love and that every power of sexual immorality we have agreed with will be broken as we turn our hearts back to Jesus. Pray that we will no longer prostitute ourselves to practices that steal the innocence of our children, rob our marriages, and give us counterfeit ideas of intimacy. Pray for the Church to rise up and overcome and be a loving witness to the world that these practices will not make their hearts whole. Pray for a great turning of hearts and that every consumer of this industry will encounter the powerful love of Christ that sets them free. Pray that the framework and ideology that enforces these practices and mindset will be dismantled and replaced with the truth of Christ. Pray for all of the victims of this industry who have been forcefully swept into its chains, that they will be released and healed in the name of Jesus.

Psalm 119:37

“Turn my eyes away from worthless things; preserve my life according to your word.”

In Your Prayers, Also Remember:

  • There are many faith-based organizations working to bring healing and restoration to the hundreds of thousands who are trafficked and sexually exploited right here in America. Pray for their important work in such a dark and evil world. Pray for the women and children who are rescued and work to find a new way of life. Learn about one particular organization, Refuge for Women, and how you can pray for them here.
  • The families of the 12 victims whose lives were taken in a mass shooting in Virginia Beach.
  • Did you join the national call to pray for President Trump yesterday? Praying for our President can happen every day. We’ve created three simple prayer points, with scripture, to help guide your prayer time both individually and corporately. You can view it and download it here.

We want to see God honored in America, and we pray for an unprecedented spiritual awakening.
