IJM Prayer List

"He will rescue them from oppression and violence, for precious is their blood in his sight"
— Psalm 72:14


  • Pray that God will bring excellent candidates to the Kenya office to fill the open Director of Interventions and Social Worker positions.
  • Continue to pray for a land-grabbing case in Uganda involving a particularly aggressive perpetrator. The perpetrator has been arrested and detained, but her lawyers are now applying for bail. Please pray that her application for bail is denied so that she can no longer harass and intimidate our client. Pray that she will be present at the upcoming trial and that IJM lawyers will have wisdom when representing our client.

Latin America

  • Paz y Esperanza, IJM’s Casework Alliance Partner in Peru, is caring for a client who was sexually abused and had a baby as a result. She suffers from health issues related to the abuse. Please pray for physical and emotional healing for this client, and pray that her abuser will be held accountable as a result of the ongoing trial.
  • Please pray that the IJM Bolivia team would be able to find the missing father of one of their clients. He has been missing for two weeks.
  • A Paz y Esperanza client and her family in Ecuador are being harassed by a media outlet. Pray that God will provide this client with peace and protection and that the harassment will come to an end.

South Asia

  • Please pray for IJM South Asia lawyers as they plan to appeal the recent decision of a judge who acquitted two perpetrators of forced labor crimes. Pray that the lawyers will have wisdom and perseverance as they develop the appeal.
  • Please pray for God to provide a field worker to assist IJM clients in South Asia who were released from forced labor slavery and have returned to their home state, which is far from IJM’s field office. Pray that this field worker will be able to assist our clients in their ongoing rehabilitation and efforts to rebuild sustainable lives in freedom.
  • Please pray for justice in a sex trafficking court case with a hearing scheduled for this week. It has taken nearly two years for this hearing to be scheduled. Pray that the case would move forward quickly and that the trial would ultimately result in a conviction against the suspected perpetrator.

Southeast Asia

  • Praise God for a successful operation resulting in the rescue of trafficked girls and women in Cebu, the Philippines. Three suspected perpetrators, all of whom are pimps, were arrested.
  • Thank God for bringing about a miraculous rescue in Cambodia! Young girls who had been trafficked to a bar were rescued and the operators of the brothel were arrested.
  • Please pray that these trafficking survivors who were recently rescued in Cebu and Cambodia will begin to heal as they receive counseling and care. Please also pray for IJM lawyers who are preparing the cases against the accused perpetrators and will work with the young women who choose to testify against their abusers.

  • Please pray that an article in a major Canadian newspaper from an interview with IJM Canada Executive Director Jamie McIntosh will be widely read and well-received, generating support from new audiences.
  • Please continue to pray that support for IJM will increase among British Christians as IJM UK presents at several conferences this summer. In particular, please pray that God will open doors of opportunity this week as IJM UK participates in “New Wine,” the largest Christian conference in the UK.
