Release International Prayer Shields, Eritrea


Pray for 12 Christian men in Eritrea who were detained in Assab for attending a prayer meeting earlier this year and are still being held at a nearby prison. Ask God to strengthen their faith.


Please pray for Patriarch Abune Antonios, head of the Eritrean Orthodox Church, who has been deposed and replaced by the Eritrean regime after 15 years of house arrest. He has never been charged or tried.


Pray for the estimated 129 Christian prisoners who remain in state jails in Eritrea. Ask God to sustain them physically and spiritually.


Please pray for the many conscripts who have been locked up for practicing their faith in Eritrea. Pray that they will find fellowship and encouragement in custody.


Some fear that recent prisoner releases are simply a ploy by the Government in Eritrea to add to the list of military conscripts. Pray for those Christians who apply for exemption on religious grounds.


Please pray for the continued release of prisoners in Eritrea. Between October and April, 171 Christians arrested for their faith were set free.


Thank God that 14 Christian men who were arrested in Eritrea four years ago and held in Dahlak Island Prison were recently set free. Ask God to help them readjust to life outside jail.
