Prayer for victims of human trafficking
O God, who led
Saint Josephine Bakhita
From abject slavery to the dignity
Of being your daughter
And a bride of Christ,
Grant, we pray,
That by her example,
We may show constant love
For the Lord Jesus crucified,
Remaining steadfast
In charity and prompt
To show compassion.
Through Christ our Lord.
