Lord, today we celebrate the successful prosecution of several key Thai leaders who participated in human trafficking in their country. We are thankful General Manas Kongpan and 60 other people were sentenced to pay the penalty of their crimes against humanity. Lord, you know we do not rejoice in the fall of these men and women. We rejoice that steps were taken to end human trafficking in this land. May these penalties of 4-94 years in prison cause others to halt their selling and harming of vulnerable human beings. May those who are headed to prison meet with you during their time there. May they seek a healthy direction for their lives. And please continue to bring about justice for those who have fallen victim to this terrible crime. In Jesus’ name we pray, amen.
