Join people of faith all over the world in a global day of worship, prayer and action on human trafficking. In Australia, Freedom Sunday is on October 18, which is also European Anti-Trafficking Day.
Encourage your parish or faith community to show your compassion for the men, women and children who have been trafficked and exploited around the world.
Pray the Freedom Prayer.
RESPONSE: God of Freedom, who leads us into life, deliver us from every evil and make us deliverers of others.
On this holy ground of worship, In this sacred place of prayer, we have heard the voice of freedom crying ‘Let my people go’. [R]
Where chains restrain God’s children, where humans trade in kin and skin, may your words pass on your promise of a land where liberty is sweet. [R]
Give us faith to face the pharaohs who line their pockets from this plague. Send us as salvation’s sponsors, willing servants; slaves to love. [R]
