A serious landslide occurred in Enga Province in the highlands of Papua New Guinea on 24 May 2024.

It is estimated that over 670 people may have died when 150+ houses were buried under soil, rubble and rocks after heavy rain.

Emergency response is underway, although the area is still unstable and dangerous. The long-term impact on the community is expected to be devastating. (Read coverage on ABC News here and here.)

Pray for our PNG neighbours

Rev Dr Apwee Ting, UnitingWorld International Partnerships Manager, has shared a prayer for Papua New Guinea ??

God who journeys with us,
We come before You with hearts full of compassion and concern for the people of Papua New Guinea. We lift up to You the communities that have been affected by the recent landslides, especially those in the remote village in Enga Province.

Loving God,
we ask for Your divine protection and provision for those who have lost loved ones, homes, and livelihoods. Surround them with Your love and give them strength to endure the hardships they face. Bring comfort to those who are grieving and peace to those who are anxious and afraid.

We pray for the churches in Papua New Guinea, that they may be a light of hope and a source of comfort in these trying times. Bless their efforts and those of the national and local governments, medical staff, and all the volunteers who are tirelessly working to provide aid and relief. Grant them wisdom, patience, and resilience as they serve their communities.

Lord of healing,
in the face of destruction and loss, may Your presence be profoundly felt. Let Your love flow through every helping hand and every act of kindness. Help the people of Papua New Guinea to rebuild their lives and their communities with courage and faith.

We trust in Your unfailing love and mercy, believing that You can bring beauty from ashes and hope from despair.

May Your light shine brightly in Papua New Guinea, now and always.

In Jesus’ name, we pray.
