Day 2: 30 Days of Prayer for Hope
The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’ (Matthew 25:40)
No one truly knows how many children are exploited every day in the Brazilian sex trade. There are certainly at least 250,000, and some estimates run as high as 2,000,000. Hunger, drug addiction, and poverty drive the children to prostitution. Statistics can sometimes be numbing, but we know every one of them is precious to our Lord. Hope Unlimited takes a special interest in these children and works to rescue and transform their lives.
Lord, just as you did not look past us in our brokenness and need, do not let us look past these children. Help us to see children caught in prostitution and sex trafficking as precious ones loved by you. Show us how to love them, too.
