    Default Pray for the victims of sex trafficking

    Last week's episode of Hawaii Five-0 was really harrowing, and it hit home hard. It dealt with the subject of sex trafficking of underage girls. I have a little girl with another on the way and two boys in between. My little Anya is not even six. To think that there are people out there who'd do that to her... Please pray for the girls and women going through this hell. They need God more than ever now. Additionally, pray for the Ho'olana Pua foundation that seeks to help the victims in their recovery by providing them a place to stay as they receive the proper care.

    Anybody who'd do this to anybody, especially an innocent girl has lost the right to walk the streets. I'd put them all in general population and make their crimes publicly known with the oother inmates

    Can you think of anything more to do than simply pray?

    You got a problem? In case you haven't noticed, this particular board is called "Prayer Requests". However, to answer your question, yes, you can donate to that foundation like I have.

    Prayers Sent.


    Forgiveness Prayer:

    Lord Jesus, Divine Forgiver; make me an instrument of forgiveness
    This is the first day of the rest of my life.
    I forgive those who have hurt me deeply,
    I am leaving behind those things of the past and all my past failures and sins.
    I'm pressing on today, with a new beginning in You.
    Have your way, clear my conscience and mend my broken heart.
    Put joy where sorrow once rested.- In Jesus Name AMEN

    Most men over 40 are also vets. I am. It's nothing to brag about as exceptional. But that means nothing as far as thinking of people and organizations we can contact locally to do something about this problem. And we all probably also give $ to these places..... but there has to be someone here who has some ideas of something more we can do.

    Well Vets get my respect. Y'all do more than most of us are willing to do. But there a lot of questions I have of what can be done in coordination with prayer. Like stop the murder of Christians by ISIS.Seems there are a lot of questions with no answers. Is it that we Christians should take to marching in the streets to get attention for these horrible issues?

    I dunno. It seems to work very well for homosexuals and their agendas. Nothing wrong with prayer....... And, on another note, everyone here told Blain they were praying for him. But it was just posted that someone sent him $100. I imagine that went pretty far toward real and effective, real-world help that he wanted.

    I just got kicked in the head by two of you for daring to think that a prayer forum could (and probably SHOULD) try to go a bit further than just chirping, "Praying."

    Locally we have charities that collect clothes, hygiene items, etc for victims. A couple ladies visted our church that has a ministry that takes spa like items to prositutes and tell them about Jesus and how He can free them.

    I know that the police busted up a underage prostitution ring locally and they said education is key.

    Educating adults to recognise signs of sexual abuse: teachers, parents, grandparents, etc. Talking to kids and having an open relationship where they can tell you if they have been approached or their friends talk have been approached to meet random men and enticed to do things for money, etc.

    It's not something we want to talk about but it's been shown the girls get recruited as early as 6th grade....that's 11 years old.

    So yeah we pray and we learn and we have conversations with others and we shine a light bright enough to reveal what they prefer to keep hidden in the dark.

    Then we help the girls stop being victims and become survivors who know that they are beloved sins and daughters of God.

    Well, I could think of an appropriate act that's be more effective than prayer, but we have something called due process in America. I can't afford to grab an M4, get on a plane to China, Latin America, etc. and start hunting down the leaders of these trafficking rings like James Bond. I'll be honest and say that morally, they should all be summarily shot. You want to stop someone from committing these terrible crimes, you make sure they could never have the opportunity to do it again. However, the Constitution is here for a reason and I swore an oath to support and defend it. I'm also not a doctor, so I can't give these poor girls counseling. The most I can do is donate to those who can help them, report to the police if I suspect someone of being involved in these crimes, petition Congress to take this issue more seriously, and yes, pray for the victims.

    You weren't "kicked in the head" for daring to think we could do more than pray, I just got mad that you assumed that that was all that I was doing.
