Pray for Eritrea - facebook page

Nicknamed the ‘North Korea of Africa' due to a repressive government, Eritrea’s dictatorial regime continues to drive a mass exodus of Christians out of the country. Eritreans are the fourth most common group seeking asylum in Europe. Meanwhile, radical Islam grows in size and influence in the nation. The president has said Christianity and capitalism will weaken the country in the face of radical Muslims who desire Islamization. Just as many Christians as Muslims live in Eritrea. According to VOM, “Many (detained Christians) are held in metal shipping containers with no ventilation or toilet facilities.” The UN has called for an investigation into Eritrean leaders’ alleged crimes against humanity. This year the increased openness between Eritrea and Ethiopia has brought some hope of potential future change.

Praise Report
Praise God that Ethiopia and Eritrea have normalized their relations after decades of tensions. Pray that progress will not be stalled (The Bible, Deuteronomy 23:21).

Prayer Requests
For so many people, the future looks bleak with forced military conscription, lack of job opportunities, and little regard for human rights. Pray that God will strengthen Christian Believers in this nation (The Bible, Psalm 27:14).
Pray for the large Eritrean orthodox and catholic churches to experience the Holy Spirit’s renewal of their ancient faith (The Bible, Psalm 104:29-31).

Call to Salvation
Pray that many who lack hope for their future will find the hope they need through salvation in Jesus Christ (The Bible, Isaiah 57:10).
