Prayer about Oxfam scandal

Heavenly Father, today we pray about the Oxfam scandal. How ironic that an organization that claims to work “alongside vulnerable women and men to end the injustices that cause poverty” would hire prostitutes to meet their own needs while serving a country whose people are absolutely devastated by a massive earthquake. We are also dismayed to hear about alleged threats to witnesses as the truth is being sought. Lord, we pray that the truth does come out, not only about inappropriate practices in Haiti, but also if truth needs to be uncovered about Oxfam’s work in Chad or other nations. We pray that those who need accountability will receive it, that those who need healing will find it, and that this organization will once again return to doing good. We pray for your followers working in this secular charity to particularly shine and influence for your glory during this dark hour. Father, we do thank you for the good work Oxfam has historically done. Please purge this organization of corruption and misbehavior so it may return to its work in a refined state. In Jesus’ name we pray, amen.
