IJM Says Prayer was Their Cornerstone to See the Impossible Happen in Ghana’s Government Regarding Child Slavery

International Justice Mission believes the world can see the end of modern-day slavery by 2030.

It may seem impossible, but IJM is familiar with making the impossible a reality, and much of that is through spiritual disciplines.

“The cornerstone of what IJM does is actually built on prayer,” says Melissa Russell, IJM’s president for the North American Region.

Every morning at 11 a.m., each office around the world gathers together to pray for 30 minutes.

“We lift up things that are hard, hard things in the field, money we’re trying to raise, political officials we’re trying to move,” Russell says. “Everything gets put up on the prayer board, and we pray for it as an organization. Prayer is an important reminder that we are called to do this good work and God is in it, that set discipline of prayer is a reminder of that.”

Russell says she’s seen prayer work miracles no one thought possible, like in Ghana seven years ago.
