This issue needs prayer. The Freedom Prayer has been developed to be used in groups, uniting faith communities in their stand against modern slavery.


Voice 1: On this holy ground of worship
In this sacred place of prayer
We have heard the voice of freedom
Crying ‘Let my people go.’

All: Father/God of freedom,
Who leads us into life,
Deliver us from every evil:
And make of us
Deliverers of others.

Voice 2: Where chains restrain God’s chosen children
Where humans trade in kin and skin
May our words pass on your promise
Of a land where liberty is sweet

All: Father/God of freedom,
Who leads us into life,
Deliver us from every evil:
And make of us
Deliverers of others.

Voice 3: Give us faith to face the Pharaohs
Who line their pockets from this plague
Send us as salvation’s sponsors
Willing servants; slaves to love

All: Father/God of freedom,
Who leads us into life,
Deliver us from every evil:
And make of us
Deliverers of others.
Amen
