Council Launches Prayer Plan

Port Moresby: Members of the Papua New Guinea Council of Churches (PNGCC) have started a 21-day prayers and fasting programme in response to the Covid-19 surge in the country.

According to the council, the programme started early this week. Council acting chairman Cardinal Sir John Ribat has appealed to Christians, church congregations, fellowship groups and church institutions to join the church leaders in observing the 21-day in prayer and fasting period.

“This is a time we can all unite together as people of God to face a life-threatening challenge of the world with our theme for meditation during the 21-day prayers and fasting based on Isaiah 40: 31,” Cardinal Sir John said.

He said people should use this time to reflect on the challenges faced by many families and individuals affected by the Covid-19 pandemic. Cardinal Sir John said it was evident that many people, living during the time of the pandemic, needed prayers to overcome their negative emotions created by fear, stigma and other causes and to develop a positive mindset by drawing closer to God who was the only hope and source of life in the face of a global pandemic.

“But those who trust in the Lord for help will find their strength renewed,” he said Cardinal Sir John said some churches under the Body of Christ alliance had begun their 21-day prayer and fasting programme on holy Thursday.
