The following information precedes the decree to end human trafficking. If people are going to experience breakthrough in their cities, then we must understand the spiritual significance of deeply rooted issues that come from our past. I have included some historical insights to the city of Escondido, where I live. You may feel led to do some digging into your city's historical roots too.
Insights: Rancho Rincon del Diablo was a 12,653 acre Mexican land grant
that was given in 1843 to Juan Bautista Alvarado. It exists in present
day San Diego county, in the city of Escondido. Escondido means “hidden
valley,” and Ranch Rincon del Diablo means “devil’s corner,” or “the
devil’s lurking place.” In the days when San Diego county was being
pioneered, this particular piece of property seemed to have great
potential for financial gain. A San Diego judge by the name of Oliver
Witherby set out to obtain full ownership of about 13, 000 acres, buying
out the shares from the Alvarado family. In 1857, Witherby bought
enough shares to feel legally entitled to the land, then moved onto it,
eventually maneuvering an out of court settlement that gave him complete
title. The judge had a great deal of influence, financial investments
and responsibility in government that gave him an incredible amount of
power as a “founding father” in this area.
the origin of why the land became nicknamed the Devil’s Corner is
unclear, it soon became known as a place where white men could engage in
illicit sexual conduct with the Native American women. At the time,
(around 1866), there were still very few white women that had settled in
this area, making the allure and sexuality of the Indian women very
attractive to the settlements of white men. The Indian women apparently
were uninhibited and quite open about nudity as well as their sexuality
and was quite a contrast to the puritanical beliefs of the white women
of that day. It became a strong attraction for the male population of
that time and supply and demand are the basics of any trade. Methods of
procuring these Indian girls (and boys) became available with an
atmosphere of “legality,” and it became quite a lucrative way to buy and
sell human slaves. (More information at: http://www.sandiegohistory.org/journal/78spring/corner.htm
) The issues of human trafficking are not new to San Diego county,
but once we understand how some of these things came to be, we can begin
to address the roots of it through prayer. Political corruption, greed,
unlawful use of authority and more will be uncovered and brought out of
this “hidden valley.” God promises that what is done in secret will be
revealed. When righteousness reigns, this “devil’s corner” will become
the Lord’s footstool. May the God of peace crush Satan under our feet
shortly according to Romans 16:20.
Decree To End Human Trafficking
Lord is well pleased for His righteousness sake; He will exalt the law
and make it honorable. But this is a people robbed and plundered, all of
them are snared in holes, and they are hidden in prison houses; they
are for prey, and no one delivers, for plunder, and no one says,
“Restore!” Isaiah 42:21,22
Who among you will give ear to this? Who will listen and hear for the time to come?
God, You have spoken in Proverbs 21:13 that whoever shuts his ears to
the cry of the poor will also cry himself and not be heard.
“Present your case,” says the Lord.
An Indictment and a Decree for Justice
Father God, I hear You.
I feel Your heart. I stand with You, O God, to declare an end to this
injustice. You have stated in Your word, in Job 22:28 that as I decided
upon a thing (as I declare it), You will establish it, and light will shine on my ways.
Therefore hear this now, you who are given to pleasures, who dwell securely, who say in your heart, ‘I am, and there is no one else besides me’; I shall not sit as a widow, nor shall I know the loss of children;
But these two things shall
come to you - in a moment, in one day: The loss of children, and
widowhood. They shall come upon you in their fullness because of the
multitude of your sorceries, for the great abundance of your
For you have trusted in your wickedness; you have said, ‘No one sees me’;
Your wisdom and your knowledge have warped you, and you have said in your heart, ‘I am, and there is no one else besides me.’
evil shall come upon you; you shall not know where it arises, and
trouble shall fall upon you. You will not be able to put it off.
Desolation shall come upon you suddenly, which you shall not know.”
the enemy has worked evil and wickedness in our midst to rob our youth
of their innocence, involve the use of fear, torment, pain, drug
addiction, lies and other forms of oppression to gain an unfair
advantage over vulnerable members of society;
Whereas, the enemy has perpetuated ungodly and evil works to make himself slaves and servants;
the enemy has incited people to cooperate with his evil schemes by
rewarding them with bribes and other forms of compensation,
this conspiracy and agreement to do evil thereby diverts justice for
the oppressed, abused, and weaker members of society;
as God’s delegated authority I do hereby declare and decree an
indictment against Satan and all parties participating with, joined to
and in partnership with this evil adversary. The adversaries are charged
with lying to entice and commit bribery; deception with an intent to
commit fraud, the use of fear, pain, torture, drug addiction, witchcraft
and other forms of violence, using force and control against the will
of others, making slaves for themselves to secure personal and financial
gain. Let the witness of Holy Spirit testify to the validity of these
I declare and decree the wicked oppressors have been caught and their wrongdoing exposed, according to Eph. 3:11-13.
I declare that what has been done in secret shall now come into the light, according to Mark 4:22 and 1 Cor. 4:5;
declare the cries of the oppressed have come before the Lord of Sabaoth
and the wages and the violence of wicked oppressors testifies against
them, according to James 5:3-6.
decree an end to political corruption, and all businesses that are
operating as an illegal front to hide the black market trade,

Lord of the Armies of Heaven to extend Your arm against the works of
evil to destroy it and break the arm of the wicked according to Psalm
decree the wickedness of the wicked has come to an end according to
Psalm 7:9 and the wickedness of the wicked has caused them to fall into
the ditch which they have made. Their trouble shall now return upon
their own head and their violent dealing shall come down upon their
crown, according to Psalm 7:14-17.
decree the captives of the mighty are taken away and the prey of the
terrible are delivered; You have saved our children, according to Isaiah
decree that the blood of Your covenant, O God, is the standard that I
raise against the works of the enemy. I declare the banner of Jehovah
Nissi over my family, the cities of Escondido, San Marcos and all of
San Diego county; throughout the State of California and the United
States of America. (Change the names to be specific to your area!)
decree the gate of unrighteousness and human trafficking is CLOSED in
Jesus name. I decree closed gates and closed doors across our nation to
those that do wickedness. I declare the border gates, all inspection and
checkpoints, all underground border tunnels, and the ports of entry at
the waterfronts are now closed to human trafficking, prostitution and
drug smuggling. These gates shall not allow wickedness through, but I
declare they are the gates of the Lord, through which the righteous
decree the gates of praise which ushers in the KING OF GLORY are
opened, according to Psalm. 118:19, 20. I declare a release of the
Spirit of Praise and Worship to make a throne for the Lord Jesus Christ
to rule in our city, state and nation.
decree a highway of holiness across interstates 15, 78, 76, 5,8, hwy
56, 54, and 52 are the highways where the redeemed shall travel, and the
ransomed of the Lord shall come to Zion with singing and everlasting
joy. They shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall
flee away, according to Isaiah 35:8-10.
decree a release of the kingdom of God, the fear of the Lord, and the
zeal of the Lord. I decree a release of Your justice for the oppressed
and righteous judgment towards those that conspire to do evil.
decree a release of Your power and might against the works of the
enemy. Stretch out Your hand O Lord, and release Your angels to bring
help and salvation to free those that are in captivity.
decree the roots of perversity, oppression, greed, witchcraft, and
bondage must shrivel and die immediately. I command the roots to dry up
and may they never bear ungodly fruit again in Jesus name. Father,
please send your angels to pull out the roots of these spirits, reveal
what must be exposed in order to cut off those illegal operations, and
let godly establishments be planted to replace those ungodly works of
evil. Let trees of righteousness be planted by the Lord.
decree the prisoners are set free from the waterless pit of
hopelessness and despair; they have returned to the stronghold of hope. I
declare a double portion of restoration to them, in Jesus name.
decree healing and restoration for the victims of human trafficking. I
declare salvation and deliverance to come forth out of Zion, in Jesus
name. Let the deliverers arise, O God! I loose their shackles and
release the Spirit of Liberty to all those that are oppressed. Let the
poor in spirit be comforted. Let the weak say they are strong in the
strength of the Lord.

for destruction, drawing them to the Father through the Lord Jesus

to reveal Jesus Christ to the nations and lay the capstone in our
cities. Let all foundations of ungodliness, evil, error and perversity
be torn up and removed. Let all spiritual foundations of deception,
witchcraft, greed, corruption and thievery be torn up and removed.
Father, I ask that You would forgive the sins and iniquities of our
forefathers, both natural and spiritual. Forgive the greed, the
oppression, thievery and shedding of innocent blood. Forgive the
generational rebellion and let the blood of Jesus cover these sins.
Father, the sins are too numerous to declare. I admit, the people of
this land stand guilty before You. The land cries out for justice, but
I pray that you grant us mercy and forgive Your people. You said in
Your word that if Your people would humble themselves and pray and seek
Your face, and turn from their wicked ways, then You would hear us and
You would forgive the sin and allow our land to be healed. Please hear
my prayer. We need you. We need Your healing and restoration. We need
Your intervention to restore the godly foundations. Please let the godly
foundations in our cities be restored; let the foundations of
righteousness, truth, equity, mercy and justice be laid upon the
revelation of Jesus Christ. In Jesus name, let it be established. Amen.
