Eritrea

PRAYER FOR THIS COUNTRY

Command the leaders of Eritrea to heed the alarm voiced by several Western countries at UN over human rights violations in Eritrea focusing on alleged abuses by Eritrean troops in Ethiopia’s Tigray region. Make the unilateral ceasefire and withdrawing of troops from the region by the Ethiopian government force the Eritrean troops to retreat from the region immediately. Compel the government of Eritrea to register the refugees and provide humanitarian aid and shelters. Enthrall the Churches and the Christian Believers to overcome the tough persecutions levied against them and battle against the atrocities done against vulnerable citizens. Raise them as warriors and declare that when they go to war against their enemies and see horses and chariots and an army greater than theirs, not to be afraid of them, because the Lord their God, who brought them up out of bondage, will be with them. (The Bible, Deuteronomy 20:1-4).
