Written on: January 10, 2019
January is National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month beginning on January 11, until the Feast of St. Josephine Bakhita on February 8, we will be praying for an end to this terrible scourge. We urge you to make good use of the materials in this tool kit from the Coalition of Catholic Organizations against Human Trafficking and this prayer. Thank you for anything that you can do to stand against human trafficking.
God of hope and peace, touch our hearts and energize our ongoing efforts in abolishing this
heinous crime against humanity so that every victim is freed and every survivor’s life renewed.
You blessed St. Josephine Bakhita of Sudan with compassion for others. May her prayers
comfort and strengthen the women, men and children who are in search of freedom.

We ask for transformation of heart for those who inflict pain, anguish and grief on our
vulnerable sisters and brothers. Give us generosity to stand in solidarity with others
so that together we heal the hearts and lives of all Your people. Grant this through our
Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, One God,
forever and ever. Amen.
