Refugees in Australia - Prayer points
The annual Australian intact of refugees is around 10,000-15,000.
Detainees (asylum seekers in detention)
“The LORD is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble” (Psalm 9v9)
Asylum seekers that reach Australia often spend a period of time in detention while their refugee 'status' is confirmed or denied by regulators. World events regularly impact on the number of asylum seekers in detention. In June 2021, the number was around two thousand. Please consider praying for:
Comfort for those that have lost and are missing much (eg- family, home, friends)
They are treated with compassion.
Provision of medical help, education.
Mental stability (big problem for detainees). Need for hope.
Unity and harmony amongst detainees.
Activities to alleviate boredom.
Dishonest applicants will be identified and weeded out from the genuine seekers.
Many will turn to God in this difficult time.
Opportunity to hear the gospel, and receive Christian love.
