Please pray against India’s  Illegal religious system  that fuels their booming sex trade.  Behind a nation being rapidly developed and globalized lies a society where religion,superstition, and old traditions still validate sex trafficking.  Traditionally the Davidasi http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Devadasi

were highly respected girls who dedicated themselves to the Goddess Yallammi.  However, over time prostitution became part of their vocation and is now forced upon them.  Their families think if they get a female she becomes an liability.  They want a solution to turn their liablilty into an asset. Today’s horrifying result is a system that exploits religious belief to turn children into sex slaves.    The Devadasi practice is now illegal in India.   Despite these laws, the Devadasi tradition and the stigmatization that goes along with it continue to flourish in India.

Pray against these deceptions and false Gods.

Pray that these girls have a revelation of Jesus and the love of their only true Savior!
