Fasting and Prayer for Victims of Sexual Trafficking

I saw this press release come across my desk and thought it was worth sharing. I'm glad to see a movement emphasizing fasting in the process of remembrance. I hope many will participate.

International Weekend of Prayer and Fasting
Intercessory Prayer and Worship Services
Washington, DC
Sept 26 & 27

Dear Friends:

September 26-28 is the International Weekend of Prayer and Fasting for Victims of Sexual Trafficking coordinated by The Salvation Army and the Initiative Against Sexual Trafficking.

For those of you in the Washington, DC, area, you are invited to special intercessory prayer services being held at 7:00 p.m. Friday, September 26, and 10:00 a.m. Saturday, September 27, at the Washington Community Fellowship (WCF) Church located at 907 Maryland Avenue, NE, Washington, DC 20002. Included at these services will be eight thematic displays using photographs, objects, and art to evoke prayer and reflection about various areas connected to sex trafficking and commercial sexual exploitation.

Additionally, there will be a community Prayer Walk on Saturday, September 27, 1:00-3:00 p.m. People wishing to participate in the Prayer Walk should meet at Washington Community Fellowship Church.

These events have been organized through the partnership of Restoration Ministries, The Church of the Resurrection, Washington Community Fellowship Church, The Salvation Army National Headquarters, and the Initiative Against Sexual Trafficking. All events are free and open to the public.

For more information contact Lisa Thompson at 703.519.5896 or 571.263.6647. For Prayer Walk flyer see: http://www.salvationarmyusa.org/trafficking.

If you don't live in the D.C. area but would like to participate, I found a prayer guide online here. The Salvation Army also has sample sermons, flyers and other helpful resources if you'd like to pull something together, either personally or with your small group or church.
