International Day of Prayer


God of justice, hope, and love

Father of the fatherless, defender of the oppressed

Our hope for years to come.

We believe that it is for freedom that you have set us free,

to serve one another through love that we may live in abundance and goodness.

Dear God,

In this moment, we stand with our sisters and brothers,

men and women, boys and girls

who are victims of modern slavery and human trafficking.

We know you feel their hurt, fear, excruciating pain, humiliation

and even all they might be going through which we might not be aware of.

Lord, we pray that you rescue them from the hands of their oppressors,

release them from the clutch of the wicked

and by your grace restore their lives and bring them into light.

Help them heal, grant them justice,

and may their traffickers repent and come to know you more.

Fill us with your sacred passion and love

that we may continue to fight for justice.

Use us as your tool, to help end this human tragedy.

And may your love, embrace and presence never depart from these victims.

Hear our cry and prayer O Heavenly Father. Amen!

Joy Ime-Sunday, Nigeria Territory

PRAYER FOR SURVIVORS…BY SURVIVORS (those freed from trafficking)

Malaika Oringo, Global Specialist for Survivor Engagement and Inclusion shares:

"To all the lost survivors after bondage, don’t lose hope; Jesus is faithful to his promises. He heard my cry as a survivor, and because of this, please know you are never alone. Here’s our prayer for you."

We hear their cries! Survivors of human trafficking are united in prayers for other survivors. We pray for hope and restoration. We hear and feel the cries of survivors; we understand how many have endured much trauma even after slavery.

Lord, hear their cries for inner peace; we come before you as broken-hearted people. We cry out for healing for other survivors dealing with wounds that are too pervasive to heal on their own. Heal the survivor from the ache in the memories of flashbacks.

Trustworthy and compassionate God, hear their cries in the prayer to restore these wounded souls’ ability to trust that people can be good, loving, and kind. We pray that you restore relationships that can help the survivor reconnect with friends and family, replace anxiety and depression with hope, and deem survivors worthy.

Malaika Oringo, The Netherlands, Czech Republic, and Slovakia Territory


Dear God of Justice:

We hear the cries of people trapped in incidences of modern slavery and exploitation.

We are overwhelmed, dismayed, and desperate for justice for the defenseless, the exploited, and the forgotten.

God of light, we ask for your immediate justice for all those trapped in modern slavery and exploitation.

We desire justice. We pray for reconciliation for the wrongs the perpetrators have done and may you pierce their hearts with your righteous illumination and help them to humbly repent and turn from their wicked ways.

We pray that perpetrators will turn themselves to the task of helping to prevent others from participating in the victimization of humankind.

We so pray, amen!

Trunk or Treat Plan


I know - I know. Some of us are uncomfortable with the title Trunk or Treat. And some of you are fine with it. The fact is, the world is comfortable with it. I want us - our church community - to be "open" that day to show that we are approachable.

When we were first married, my husband used to turn off our porch lights and house lights. We would close ourselves off to a backroom and watch TV as families walked through the neighborhood.

I didn't feel comfortable with that.

As years have gone by, we have tried different things. We've opened our house to trick-or-treaters and passed out candy and a cartoon gospel message. We decorated our house with a cross or "holy ghosts". At a larger appointment, we were able to organize a thematic Roman Road experience - staff and volunteers were dressed in togas or Centurian costumes - while we had different activities - like games or a prayer station - that introduced our reinforced Bible points leading to a decision for Christ.

We have to plan for our particular setting.

Last year, we stepped out in faith and were surprised that the community came out. We had just enough "trunkers" and games to keep our guests occupied. However, we want to do even better than that this year!

Some of the points our team have planned and proposed are as follows:

We will stage all the activities in the smaller parking lot; keeping the larger parking lot open for guests. This means that we will direct everyone to enter through La Vista Avenue.

We will start our church service earlier that day at 10:30 AM. Members will also park in the larger parking lot as our Salvation Army EDS Canteen will be blocking our regular entryway on Clayton Road.

After the worship service, we would like everyone to stay and help set up for the outreach event. We envision our Youth Praise Team and Senior Band playing/singing within the 2 hours of programming.

People can help man the bounce house and other children's games or activities.

Others can help with the grilling of hot dogs or popping the popcorn and handing out the food. We can have an easy craft set out for children to do. It would be a good opportunity for members to chat with parents about church and other programs.

Host a "trunk" - decorate the bank of your car or a table and pass out candy to visiting families. Consider a theme that can be supported with scripture: for example, a farmer with the fruit of the spirit, Ezekiel and the valley of dry bones that come to life, or a carpenter's trunk. There are endless ideas. If you need help, we can help you.

We would like to do a couple of prize drawings. We will ask guests to give us their names and contact information to be added to the drawing. (This is NOT a raffle! No one will be required to pay to enter!) If you have any connections with a business or vendor that could donate towards the giveaway, please ask on our behalf.

We don't want any gory costumes.

Pray now that we will be able to show the light and love of God! Next year we can turn it into a Harvest Festival, but for now, we are set on this. We need your support.

Please let Major Willdonna know if you would like to host a trunk or volunteer in a specific area mentioned above or use the link below.

International Prayer Focus

This initiative of turning our thoughts and prayers towards the same part of the world at some point in the same week is a beautiful way to unite us as a global Army family and I thank you for the commitment you each give to this.

Italy and Greece Territory

Territorial Leaders: Lt. Colonels Andrew and Darlene Morgan


Please pray:

for the Lord’s guidance in the development of a future officer training program.

for individuals to sense and obey God’s call on their lives to officership.

for the nurturing of seeds planted during summer camping ministries with children, youth, and women.

for wisdom in the ongoing relationship-building with the Italian government.

for the Lord's guidance and provision in the continued development of our public relations and fundraising.

for fruitful outcomes of the Territorial Review happening this week, that they may guide us to clearer mission focus and effectiveness.

Please pray with thanks for:

successful summer camping ministries, the first post-COVID.

committed and joyful officers and soldiers.


Please pray:

for a favorable outcome following the submission of The Salvation Army’s updated legal constitution to national authorities, that TSA will thus stand in good stead legally for the foreseeable future.

that the practical and spiritual input given this summer in Greece by the USA Eastern Territory’s Mission Team will take root and grow into something beautiful in the lives of those they served. We thank God for the team’s spirit of servanthood, their open minds, and the new friendships formed with those they served.

Please pray with thanks for:

integrated mission which is growing in Greece. Pray that the multi-cultural and multilingual communities surrounding the Corps will continue to be influenced by the Gospel and that our God may become known and great in a very real and tangible way.
