the children

"...[the wicked man] lies in wait like a lion in cover; he lies in wait to catch the helpless; he catches the helpless and drags them off in his net. his victims are crushed, they collapse; they fall under his strength. he says to himself, 'God has forgotten; He covers His face and never sees.' [but] You hear, O Lord, the desire of the afflicted; You encourage them, and You listen to their cry, defending the fatherless and the oppressed, in order that man, who is of the earth, may terrify no more."

Psalm 10:9-11; 17-18

This picture makes me sick. So much about trafficking is still unresolved and feels paralyzing to me. But the Lord knows about all of it. "The Lord works righteousness and justice for all the oppressed," Psalm 103:6. He hasn't forgotten. He knows their names.

He holds the children  throughout the night He is love.
