PAPUA NEW GUINEA: Sexual violence is sadly commonplace. According to the PNG Law Reform Commission, 70% of women in PNG say they’ve been physically abused by their husbands. In some parts of the country the figure is far greater. Pray for this devastating abuse to change. Ask the Lord to pour out His love on those who have been hurt, bringing healing both physically and emotionally in Jesus’ precious name.

PAPUA NEW GUINEA: Belief in Sanguma (witchcraft) is prevalent in rural PNG, with around 150 women suspected of sorcery killed each year. Pray that the words of Matthew 13:16, ‘But blessed are your eyes because they see, and your ears because they hear’, will be true for PNG’s people. Pray they won’t take the law into their own hands but know God’s truth, power and peace. Pray for vulnerable women wrongly accused of witchcraft.
