Day 10: 50 Days of Prayer for the Persecuted Church: Eritrea

Today we pray for Eritrea. Unlike the counties in the last nine days Eritrea situation is different. Christians are being persecuted by modern day Pharisees. Government keeps a tight control of religious groups and is opposed to evangelical Christians.

For more information Open Doors USA has some details. They estimate 2.7 million Christians in the population of just over 5.4 million.

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


Father, we pray for Eritrea. We ask that the religious bondage that is holding that country back will be destroyed. We read of over the half of the country claiming to be Christian, yet persecution is still on the rise. We ask for boldness for our brothers and sisters in the faith, give them the opportunities to change their country. Give them foot holds in government, schools, colleges and many other places. Let your light shine all throughout Eritrea. Amen
