Prayer Point

June 2019 Prayer Point Eritrea

141 Christians arrested by security agents last month (Friday 10 May) in Eritrea's capital city Asmara.

Christians who aren’t members of state approved churches are considered agents of the West and a threat to the state. Christians who are members of unregistered churches are in prison – some have been held captive for over a decade.

The 104 women, 23 men and 14 minors were rounded up from the Mai Temenai area of the city. Officials separated the men and women before taking the men to Adi Abeito prison and the women to Police Station Number 4.

None of them have yet been charged, and there is concern about the wellbeing of the minors and the elderly among them.

Please pray.

  • That all the believers would experience the comfort and peace of the Lord as they endure this persecution 
  • For the Lord's spiritual and physical provision for them
  • That they would not be ruled by fear, but power, love and a sound mind
  • That the Lord would glorify himself through the testimonies of these believers.
