Lord, today we pray for the 250
athletes and sporting members seeking asylum in Australia after April’s Commonwealth Games. First, we pray for the best
situation for everyone involved. We pray for the Australian government as they
sift through the hundreds of new cases, seeking the truth about these
asylum-seekers’ needs. We pray for urgent cases to be very clear, and for those
who most need it to find safe refuge and new opportunities in Australia as quickly
as possible. We pray for those who have simply “disappeared” after the Games.
We know that living illegally in a country is very controversial and difficult.
We do not know these people’s circumstances, but pray that they would also end
up in the healthiest and most appropriate situations possible. We pray for Refugee
Advice and Casework service and other non-profits working with refugees,
that they would have great wisdom in placing and assisting these refugees. In
Jesus’ name we pray, amen.
