Will you join us to pray weekly for renewal in Africa?
From April till December 2019, we will be praying for the establishment of God’s kingdom throughout Africa. In line with God’s promise to the Messiah (Psalm 2), we long for the nations to submit to the rule of their King. From Algeria to Zimbabwe, we trust that every knee in Africa will bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord.
PRAY FOR ERITREA
Official language: Tigrinya. Tigre, Arabic and English are widely used.
An arid desert plain along the Red Sea, Eritrea is bordered by Sudan, Ethiopia and Djibouti. Over 40% are Christian.
- 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 will resist opposition better. 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.
