Day 22: 50 Days of Prayer for the Persecuted Church: Ethiopia

Today we pray for Ethiopia. Political unrest and religious animosity are the undertones of Ethiopia. Unrest between traditional Orthodox Christianity and other denominations doesn’t help the situation.

 

For more information, Open Doors USA has some details. They estimate just over 65 million Christians in the population of  104 million people.

 

Please pray with me and add your prayers in the comments.

 

Father, we pray for Ethiopia. Some may call it ecclesiastical arrogance, we pray for a strengthening of foundations of the Christian faith. God provide stability and biblical reform to the church’s that are divisive in this nation. The church body needs to become one, working together for one purpose of sharing your love. There is enough outside persecution that they don’t need it from inside the family of believers. We pray that there would be an awakening of government officials, that they would know you personally. We ask for protection for those who walk away from their traditional beliefs to follow you. Give them boldness to share your love. Amen
