Eritrea: Pray for the Persecuted Church
23 May 2012
Our persecuted brothers and sisters in Eritrea have asked that their Christian family around the globe join in unity to pray for them on the 10th anniversary of their churches being closed and their pastors imprisoned by the government. Church doors were closed in May 2002.
This call to prayer comes from Christians in Eritrea and the Association of Evangelicals in Africa. To pray is the “least and the most we can do”; it is an expression of our love.
SIM served the Eritrean people and its church since the 1950s. Our last SIM missionaries were forced out in July 2004 when their work permit was refused. With hearty hope, we pray for that joyful day when we will return.
In addition to prayer you can spread the word. Please like, forward and repost this call to prayer.
