The first Pray for Freedom event in the Halls of Congress took place in September. The purpose of Pray for Freedom ( is to pray for and raise awareness about those trapped in slavery of every kind: labor trafficking, sex trafficking, child soldiers, debt bondage, pornography, domestic, foreign, etc. 

The Salvation Army National Capital Area Command, together with USA National Headquarters and the Faith Alliance Against Slavery and Trafficking (FAAST), hosted the event featuring leaders from such organizations as World Relief, National Center on Sexual Exploitation, Shared Hope Int’l, International Justice Mission, Compassion First, Nazarene Compassionate Ministries, Project Rescue, The Federal Bureau of Investigation, The Global Center for Women and Justice, and The Human Trafficking Initiative.

Each representative led in a time of prayer specific to different topics related to slavery and trafficking, including prayer for abolitionists and members of law enforcement.

Pray for Freedom is an annual event each January in California on the campus of Vanguard University. 

The event was led by Major Leisa Hall, Associate Area Commander for the National Capital Area Command; along with Jason Pope, of The Salvation Army World Services Office, who is also the current FAAST Chairman; and Mandy Porter-Griffith, FAAST Coordinator.
