We believe prayer is one of our most powerful tools to fight the evil of modern slavery and essential in the holistic healing of those hurting because of it.
We ascribe to Jesus' statement that whatsoever we ask in His Name, He is faithful to respond as we ask for His spiritual kingdom of justice and compassion to grow and expand in Northern Virginia and beyond. Because we believe that Jesus came to comfort the brokenhearted, set the captives free and transform ashes into beauty, our greatest hope is that our efforts will lead not just to literal freedom, but that those ensnared will also experience a holistic healing. **
NOVA HTI Prayer Team
The NOVA HTI Prayer Team gathers on a conference call one or two times per month to pray about anti-trafficking related matters in our region and for anti-trafficking professionals. We also receive specific prayer requests, sometimes urgent ones, for both victims and from professionals involved in anti-trafficking work. We also address the larger issues and components of human trafficking as we bring what concerns us before our Father, who is big and loving enough to handle everything.
If you are interested in creating more opportunities within your church, collectively in groups, or using other formats, please let us know. We'd love to support you however we can!
These are a few resources we have complied and recommend to help you pray about the issue of trafficking in our area.

- Armenta Prayer Guide
