    HULL FREEDOM TRAIL (www.hullfreedomtrail.com) follows 24 people from Hull in the UK who embarked on an anti-slavery campaign. They drove five 4×4 vehicles to Sierra Leone where they donated the trucks to humanitarian organizations that focus on anti-trafficking. HULL FREEDOM TRAIL was inspired by William Wilberforce, a British Member of Parliament who initiated the abolition of slavery in 1807. Unfortunately, slavery remains a major issue in the 21st Century. According to Anti-Slavery-International more than 12 million people are still trapped in slavery world-wide. This scandal certainly is linked to the dramatic increase of extreme poverty, which opens the doors to exploitation in sex-slavery and other forms of bound labour. Raising awareness about these issues is a major goal of Hull Freedom Trail. Production Notes: My involvement with HFT was a result of my camera work on the Long Way Round and Long Way Down series where I filmed the motorbike journeys of actors Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman. They combined their expedition with insights into Unicef’s child protection projects. Johnathan Richards, the initiator of the HFT project wanted to do something similar about modern day slavery. He called me and immediately I was interested. Hull Freedom Trail was more difficult to film than Long Way Round or Long Way Down. First, I didn’t have professional actors in front of the camera but had to find my key characters within a group of 24 ordinary people. Second, there was no production crew of 12 people behind me and, therefore, I filmed, directed and produced the entire show on my own. Third, I had a miniscule budget because a TV commission wasn’t secured before the beginning of the expedition. Despite all the limitations of the HFT production I’m extremely proud of this film. It was a great opportunity to combine the entertainment value of the West Africa adventure with the serious issue of modern day slavery. Of course I only scratched the surface of slavery in the 21st Century. We could have done much more with the larger budget of a proper TV commission. However, considering the restrictions, I’m very pleased about the results. I wish more of my commissioned films would offer as much purpose as Hull Freedom Trail.

                Our prayer motivator verse for today is Matthew 7:7 which reads: "Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you." Allow me to share with you some important points regarding this verse from Matthew Henry's Commentary: It is to the same purport, yet with some addition that this verse is made to extend to all that pray aright; "Not only you my disciples shall receive what you pray for, but every one that asketh, receiveth, whether Jew or Gentile, young or old, rich or poor, high or low, master or servant, learned or unlearned, they are all alike welcome to the throne of grace, if they come in faith: for God is no respecter of persons.’’ It is made so as to amount to a grant, in words of the present tense, which is more than a promise for the future. Every one that asketh, not only shall receive, but receiveth; by faith, applying and appropriating the promise, we are actually interested and invested in the good promised: so sure and inviolable are the promises of God, that they do, in effect, give present possession: an active believer enters immediately, and makes the blessings promised his own. What have we in hope, according to the promise, is as sure, and should be as sweet, as what we have in hand. My personal encouragement to you today is this: The best and only pattern to follow when you pray is the one that our Lord gave to us which is commonly called “The Lord’s Prayer,” which is found in Matthew 6: 9-13. Now you do not have to pray this same prayer, but you can use it as a guide in your own prayer life. According to Jesus’ pattern of prayer, you should: 1. Praise God first. 2. Put His will before yours. 3. Ask for your daily provisions. 4. Ask for forgiveness of sin. 5. Ask God to keep you from evil. and 6. Give God the glory. Lay everything on your heart and mind before God and enjoy His peace. Our prayer motivator quote today is from William Wilberforce. He said: "Of all things, guard against neglecting God in the secret place of prayer." Our prayer motivator devotional today is part 12 of our series titled "THE SIN OF PRAYERLESSNESS" from Dr. John R. Rice. We do well to remember that "the whole armor of God" which we are commanded to put on "that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil," and again, "that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day," includes "praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints". Prayer defeats Satan. By prayer one may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil and to withstand in the evil day. A Christian who was enslaved by the tobacco habit said to me, "I can go about a half a day at a time, and then I just have to have a cigarette." He told me how he prayed every day about the matter and for hours would seem to have the victory, but before the day was gone he would again fall into temptation and sin. I showed him that he had been given the victory by prayer for a little time, and that what he needed to do for continued victory was to pray more. He promised to pray every half hour if need be, to take time out from his work and go alone until he had victory and to continue that until permanent victory came. And thus he conquered the thing that had enslaved him. + Plus, listen to Natalie Grant singing "Waiting for a Prayer"
