Heavy flooding has hit Indonesia’s capital in recent days and its Governor has declared a state of emergency.

Flooding is usual in Jakarta but normally affects the lower lying areas of the city. This flood has inundated even the grounds of the Presidential Palace.

At least ten thousand people have been displaced and the effects are wide spread, see more pictures of the devastation here.

Please lift up the people of Jakarta during this time and pray for their recovery in the days ahead.
