These are areas close to my heart, and his presentation, including a slide show, brought me to tears many times that day. If you are interested in more information, please go to their website. I am sure they will do a much better job explaining their mission that what I just did! Anyways, they are having a "Pray 27 days for million slaves" campaign right now. Experts estimate that there are 27 million children, women and men in slavery today. IGM believes that God knows and cares for each person who suffers- and IGM wants you to ask Him to bring rescue and release to those who wait for help.
Here is an example of prayer that will guide you if interested:
- Pray for an end to slavery around the world, and that God would bring rescue, restoration and hope to people who are enslaved right now. (Psalm 10:16-18)
- Pray for wisdom and protection for IJM mission staff, government and ministry partners who undertake dangerous and difficult work every day. (Psalm 23:4)
I know that the Lord secures justice for the poor and upholds the cause of the needy. (Psalm 140:12)
