Praying for Our Region:

Peace Promise began strategically praying at and for truck stops in our area in 2009. Most truck stop owners and managers and the truck drivers they serve are decent, good people. Many walk with God. It is important not to demonize or stereotype all truckers or truck stop owners and managers. That said, there is a documented vulnerability at many truck stops. That vulnerability is the collision of opportunity with lonely, sometimes porn/sex addicted truck drivers, exploitative pimps, and traffickers. 

The Problem:  There has been a proliferation of adult video shops and bookstores as well as “gentlemen’s” clubs. They, too, rely on people who are being exploited whether or not they meet the legal definition of being trafficked. The trafficking and the people being exploited through sex for money is not new by any stretch of the imagination. Much light has been shed on it in the past five years as people are waking up to the plight of prostitution, especially under-aged prostitution, in our country. ​ Media stories about the truth of sexual exploitation are shattering myths and correcting misinformation. 

The Solution: ​In response, we call upon the greatest and most powerful force in all the universe and through all eternity – – God Almighty. We call on Him through our prayers. We have seen a marked increase in media and law enforcement attention when we began to call upon God specifically for our local truck stops. The same formula applies to adult stores and gentlemen’s clubs. The power of prayer brings about needed change.

Your Role: We would like to inspire prayer groups to “adopt” the truck stops, adult stores, and gentlemen’s clubs in the spirit realm through intentional, organized prayer efforts. We have provided a map of our area to indicate which truck stops, gentlemen’s clubs, and adult stores need to be covered in prayer. If you would like guidance on how to best pray or serve  our community, we invite you to visit our Contact Us page.
