Release International Prayer Shields, Eritrea and Viet Nam.


Stand with Release partner Dr Berhane Asmelash in interceding for Christians in Eritrea and the Tigray region. ‘Pray for grace, that they can receive with joy the suffering they are facing, because they’re doing it for the sake of Christ,’ he said.


Release contacts say that Eritrean soldiers engaged in the Tigray region of Ethiopia are targeting priests. Ask God to protect the Christians in the area: its displacement camps house many who have fled persecution in their homeland.


‘Fatemah’ and her husband ‘Dawit’ were both imprisoned for sharing their faith in Eritrea. When she was released, Fatemah fled Eritrea – with her husband still in prison. For their safety, she left her children with relatives. Praise God the family are soon to be reunited in a third country.


Pray for two church elders, Girmay Araia and Samuel Gebrewleldi, both in their 70s and from the Full Gospel Church of Eritrea, who were arrested in July. They have both been imprisoned previously.


Pray for the swift release in Eritrea of 15 Christians recently arrested in Asmara. All of them have previously been imprisoned for their faith, but had been released in the summer of 2020.


Pray for the estimated 160 believers thought to be behind bars in Eritrea. Pray that God will sustain them – and make a way for their release.


Please pray that the witness of the church in Vietnam will cause many to seek God.
