To lift up persecuted Christians in your prayers and see God at work in their livesSUBSCRIBE
Continue to pray for Father Abune Antonios, former head of the Orthodox Church in Eritrea, who was stripped of his title and put under house arrest in 2007 for speaking up for religious freedom. He is 92 and in poor health.
Twen Theodros, who has been in jail for more than 14 years, is now in Mai Serewa prison, which is said to be relatively better than her previous prisons in Eritrea. Pray for her release.
Some children in Eritrea have not seen their parents for years and been deprived of knowing their mother or father during their formative years. Pray that they will know they are loved by God the Father.
Many Christians, especially pastors, have been held for more than ten years in Eritrea: some have not been seen since their arrest. Thank God that He sees them: pray for their release.
Pray for the 141 believers arrested at a gathering in Asmara one Friday in May: more than 100 of them were women, and their number included children and elderly people. Sixty-four were reportedly released the same month in Eritrea.
Prisoners in Eritrea are often held in appalling conditions, and are denied visits and legal representation. Many have died behind bars, because of abuse and neglect. Pray for reform of Eritrea’s prison system.
Fikadu was detained in Adi Quala in Eritrea in May 2017 and died two months later in prison. Ask God to provide for her husband, Afewerki, and their four children who are now living as refugees abroad.
'Let us be on the side of those who sit in jails and are sentenced to death for their faith. Let us pray for them and help them'.
