Prayer against teen prostitution in Minnesota, USA
Photo credit: Carrie Snyder/The Forum
Lord God Almighty, we are absolutely heartbroken to hear the stories of teen prostitution in the state of Minnesota, USA. We are stunned to hear that pimps in Las Vegas call Minnesota “the factory,” because at least one in 10 prostitutes picked up by police in Vegas is from Minnesota. Lord, we pray for the state’s Bureau of Criminal Apprehension as they seek to eradicate this scourge, feeling like they have few success stories and comparing the problem to a termite infestation. Grant them the conviction, courage and determination to persevere in their work. Give them keen insight and wisdom as they connect with people within the network, and as they seek creative, effective solutions to this massive, entrenched problem. We specifically pray for Special Agent Quinn-Robinson, detective Wendy Lehner and Minneapolis vice officer Matt Wente as they press on with their work. Protect them and grant them success. We pray for parents in Minnesota, that they would not deny this issue, nor convince themselves that their children are not at risk. May they effectively communicate and connect with their children, as proactive means of protecting them. We pray for the St. Paul recovery center Breaking Free--that this organization and others like it would help women of all ages escape from this abusive, destructive cycle. In Jesus’ name we pray, amen.
