Nefarious Documentary

This weekend Andrew and I went to see the film Nefarious: Merchant of Souls produced by Exodus Cry to raise awareness of the severity and reality of sex trafficking around the world. Exodus Cry is an organization a part of IHOP that works for the ending of human trafficking and the restoration of those caught in the web of the sex industry. It seeks to bring widespread awareness on the issues of modern slavery while reaching out to those caught in the sex industry. 
Here is the trailer:

It's so easy to get comfortable in my own world and not take the time to think about, and more importantly, pray about global issues like these. I'm so thankful to be a part of a church who prioritizes justice and approaches it in a way that scripture teaches us: The combination of 24/7 prayers for justice and 24/7 works for justice. 

Lord, give me a heart for the broken and the helpless. Put in me a sense of urgency to pray day and night for revival and justice around the world. 

Luke 18:7-8 "And will not God bring about justice for his chosen ones, who cry out to him day and night? Will he keep putting them off? I tell you, he will see that they get justice, and quickly."
