“Are you ever afraid?” “Isn’t what you do dangerous?” These are common questions we get asked during presentations. And the answer is complex.
It is not often that we face actual physical danger, but it is a possibility. More accurately what we face is unseen. The issues of trafficking and commercial sexual exploitation are dark and there is a very real enemy that we face. It’s heavy. It’s sometimes oppressive. And no amount of physical presence can overcome that.
Scripture is very clear that our battle is not against flesh and blood but rather again the unseen. And there is only one way to fight that battle – on our knees in prayer. We are reminded daily or, if we are being honest, minute-by-minute that we do not do this ourselves. We cannot do this without a foundation and covering of prayer.
Because of this, we as an organization are committed to praying. We have a committed team of volunteers that intercede on our behalf regularly. We have developed a prayer guide that can be used by anyone seeking to pray for She’s Somebody’s Daughter.
I want to invite you this month to pray specifically for our leadership. That we would be discerning and wise in our positions. That we would remain centered on Christ. That we would love those we meet with a love that comes from the overflow of our relationship with Him. Pray for our board as they help guide us in building communities of love and hope that honor women.
