To lift up persecuted Christians in your prayers and see God at work in their livesSUBSCRIBE
Prayers For Our Persecuted Family.
Sometimes it can be difficult to know what to pray for our persecuted family so we produce a daily prayer shield which gives a specific need that you can pray for each day. You can see today’s prayer, plus those for the last 6 days, below. You can also sign up using the form above to receive our Email Prayer Alert which we send out whenever we become aware of a specific and immediate situation which requires urgent prayer.
In Aksum, Tigray, Eritrean troops allied to the Ethiopian Government reportedly killed at least 78 priests in November 2020. Continue to pray for the church in this area; that God will raise up new leaders and strengthen His people.
Pray for believers in the Tigray region of Ethiopia who are being caught up in the conflict between separatists and government troops. Church leaders have been a particular target.
Despite Ethiopia being considered a majority-Christian country, believers suffer harassment by traditional Christians and radical Islamists. Pray that God will build unity across Christian denominations.
Thank God that Christianity continues to grow in Eritrea. Pray that God will multiply daily the numbers of those being added into His church family there.
Pray for God’s protection over church leaders in Eritrea: they continue to be a target for arrest and persecution because they are authority figures in society.
In March 29 Christians, believed to be 17 women and 12 men, were jailed after police raided a prayer meeting in Asmara, Eritrea. Pray they will be freed soon.
An estimated 220 Christians remain behind bars in Eritrea, many in inhumane conditions. Pray for their immediate release.
'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'.
