Father God, we pray for our brothers and sisters in Eritrea at this time, particularly those who have been imprisoned for Jesus. Lord, I remember how You were with me through my dark time in prison. I remember how I could hear Your voice and You lifted me up in spirit as Your beloved through that terrible evil.
I particularly pray for those friends I know that are still suffering in prison for their love for You, Lord God.
I pray for our brother John in Ethiopia too. May he find peace, protection and love, and may he continue to be strengthened by You, Jesus.
We pray for his dear wife Genet and their children.
Keep them in grace and peace forever.
Thank you everyone at Release International for holding Eritrea in your hearts
