February 8theach year marks the International Day of Prayer and Awareness Against Human Trafficking. The U.S. State Department estimates that nearly 25 million persons worldwide could be victims of human trafficking. Examples of human trafficking include forced labor, domestic servitude, and various forms of abuse. It is beyond comprehension that anyone can be subjected to such evil; such horror. But it happens every day around the world. It is reported that human trafficking is the second largest criminal enterprise, trailing only the illegal drug trade. The average age of trafficked individuals is between 14 and 16, and less than one percent of victims are ever identified. United in prayer, may we work together for the eradication of human trafficking.
