The Salvation Army is deeply committed to fighting and responding to modern slavery and human trafficking. We have a theological and historical mandate. We believe prayer is foundational and an essential, powerful tool to fight for freedom and work towards a world free from exploitation.
We invite you to join Salvationists and friends around the world on Sunday, September 26, 2021, to corporately cry out for justice and freedom.
We want to activate our collective voice to say that we believe a world without modern slavery and human trafficking is possible. Here's how you can participate.
This year’s theme is Beyond the Dark, inspired by 1 Peter 2:9-10.
Below are resources to help guide and support your engagement in our 'Beyond the Dark' 2021 Annual Day of Prayer for Victims of Human Trafficking.
The written resources for adults and children and youth below and the #BeyondtheDark videos below are designed to help you craft your prayer response.
Written resources will be available below in multiple languages. We will be updating this page as we continue receiving translated resources.
If your territory is translating the material in another language that isn't below, we would be pleased to receive a copy of this to make this available to others. Please email these to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Use these prayer videos to bring spiritual awareness to your community.
For more information on how to participate, a video guide will be posted soon. Stay tuned!
