Human trafficking Social Witness Human trafficking is a process in which persons, by force or deception, lose their freedom and become slaves. The injustice of human trafficking causes unimaginable misery and suffering to those who are dehumanised, forced to become commodities that are bought, sold, used, abused and even killed. Pray for all those caught up in human trafficking, for courage and perseverance and for hope in their individual situations. Give thanks for the individuals and organisations involved in extricating these people from their plight. Pray for wisdom and discernment as they make plans to give these people freedom and a new life.
