— Ephesians 6:14-15


  • Praise God for the safety of our team in Kenya during and after the recent elections. Pray for continued peace in the country during the weeks following the election, while results are finalized.

Latin America

  • Please continue to pray with us for an upcoming trial in Liana's* case in early September. Her stepfather is charged with exploiting her, and Liana will bravely testify against him. Pray that this trial would move forward quickly so he would be brought to justice.

South Asia

  • Please pray for breakthrough in our relationship with one state-level government office that oversees work on forced labor slavery. Overall, our team has worked really well with these officials, but one high-level leader has been resistant to some of IJM’s cases and suggestions. She has enormous potential to impact the fight against modern-day slavery, so we want to reassure her we have the right intentions and are eager to support her. Please pray for the strength of IJM’s reputation and for God’s favor in these crucial relationships with our partners.

Southeast Asia

  • Pray for social workers and staff from aftercare partners who attended a Trauma Informed Care training this week in the Philippines. Pray that the care providers who attended IJM’s workshop will implement the principles and strategies they learned. Pray specifically for the boys and girls who have been rescued from cybersex trafficking; ask God to restore them through their social workers and shelter staff.

IJM HQ & Global Partners

IJM has partner offices in Australia, Canada, Germany, the Netherlands and the UK.

  • Please pray for our mobilization team as they recruit student leaders to host a Freedom Fast on their college campuses this fall. Pray that the events, where students will fast for 24 hours and fuel IJM’s work through their prayers and resources, would connect students to God’s heart for justice and inspire them to join the fight against slavery.
  • Please pray for a Vice President of Global Technology Solutions to join our team. We are seeking a talented leader to serve the global enterprise in seizing unprecedented opportunities in its next era of growth. This person will be responsible for the Information Technology operations in field offices across the world including developing countries, development and delivery of IJM’s custom and off-the-shelf application solutions, implementation and deployment of an ERP system, engagement with IJM Partner Offices to optimize global IT solutions, and providing leadership and guidance for strategic projects and programs.
