Weekend of Prayer


SEE ALSO: Human Trafficking | Weekend of Prayer | How You Can Help | If You Suspect | Around the World

The Weekend of Prayer was an initiative of The Salvation Army, Canada & Bermuda, in 2006. It is now an internationally recognized call to prayer.  At the end of September, Salvation Army congregations all around the world commit to praying specifically for those affected by human trafficking.

This year’s event will be 27-29 September 2013.  There are many ways to become involved, but the first is to mark your calendar and encourage others to do the same.
