Prayer Needs

  • In  spite of severe persecution by the government (7th worst country in which to be a Christian; Thousands of believers imprisoned over the past ten years), the church is growing. Pray that this growth will continue.
  • Pray for increased unity and cooperation among Christian denominations and churches around the gospel. A united church is stronger to resist opposition. Also pray that the renewal which is springing up in many denominations will blossom into a nation-wide awakening.
  • Pray that God will touch the heart of President Afwerki (and all who work with him). May they come to acknowledge the Lordship of Christ and advance his cause.
