Heavenly Father, today we are dismayed to learn of clearly racist practices implemented at a hotel in the Northern Territory of Australia. We are thankful that the truth came out about the Ibis Styles Alice Springs Oasis’ mistreatment of Aboriginal guests. We pray now for corrective measures and appropriate consequences to be effectively and swiftly implemented. Lord God, we know that the emotional impact on Alice Springs, the immediately surrounding communities, and the broader Aboriginal community in Australia will be significant. We pray for comfort, healing and hope for those who have been directly and indirectly impacted by the revelation of this blatant racism against their communities. We pray for continued growth in each of our hearts, that we might acknowledge the intrinsic dignity in each human being, and consistently practice the love of Christ toward all. We pray against racism in Australia, that efforts against this blight will prevail. In Jesus’ glorious name we pray, amen.
