The last few days my Facebook and Twitter feed has filled with “pray for the sex trafficking during the Super Bowl.” This is one area where prayer is futile without action or commitment to change. Forgive my boldness, but sex trafficking begins and ends with men.

I’m not anti-men, but I am a realist. 

  • When men stop paying for sex, trafficking of women, girls and boys will stop.
  • When men stop living in dark shadows with their addition to sex and illicit sexual practices, trafficking will stop.
  • When men stop joking with each other about sex, who they have it with and how good it was, sex trafficking will stop.
  • When men stop hiding their dirty secret of being a client for prostitution and child sex, sex trafficking will stop.
  • When men stop soliciting pornography, sex trafficking will stop.
  • When men stop believing their sexual drive is like an unbridled animal, sex trafficking will stop.
  • When men stop lying to themselves that sex trafficking is okay, it will stop.

 

  • When men start living with integrity, sex trafficking will stop.
  • When men start being accountable to their children for what they do in the dark, sex trafficking will stop.
  • When men start being a peer group where illicit sex and objectification of women isn’t cool, sex trafficking will stop.
  • When men teach their sons how to respect women and model it, sex trafficking can stop. 
  • When men choose self-control, sex trafficking will stop.
  • When men start talking to each other about what is tempting in the dark, sex trafficking will stop.
  • When men talk to their sons about what’s tempting in the dark, sex trafficking will stop.
  • When men in positions of influence say “No more,” sex trafficking will stop.
  • When men of every walk of life will live like God intended them to be, as reflections of Him, as His leaders and protectors, sex trafficking will stop.

Clients of sex trafficking at the Super Bowl tonight and in years to come are your co-workers, husbands, fathers, coaches, pastors, truck-drivers, managers at your favorite restaurant, brothers, sons, boyfriends, grocery-store cashiers, lawmakers, and everyone in between. Sex trafficking in increasing exponentially in the United States. Each year at the Super Bowl it becomes an issue.

We can pray, but we need to ask the men in our lives, What are  you going to do? Where do you contribute to the problem or how are you helping to change the demand for this horrendous treatment of God’s children, sons, and daughters?

America is a country of supply and demand.

What will you do to stop the demand?
