How does prayer change the fight against human trafficking?

In this latest episode of The Elijah Rising Podcast, we talk about the role of prayer in anti-trafficking work. I’m excited to share it with you because as you listen you will acquire a deeper desire to pray. At the end of the episode we come to a powerful realization about the power of prayer, don’t miss it.

“Many times we pray about things and don’t know God’s will, but in the area of trafficking, we DO KNOW IT.  And that is the lifeblood of the anti-trafficking movement. WE KNOW Jesus came with the intentions to heal, comfort, and free those held down by the ways of the world. That’s a powerful place to stand “in the gap” between the will of hell and the will of Heaven.”
