On May 10, security agents arrested 141 Christians in Asmara, the capital of Eritrea. The 104 adult females, 23 adult males and 14 minors were rounded up from the same area of the city. The men were taken to Aid Abeito prison and the women to Police Station Number 4.
As far as we know, none of them have been charged. However, there is concern about the well-being of the minors and elderly in the group.
Eritrea in the Horn of Africa is ranked #7 on the 2019 World Watch List, which provides glimpses into the 50 places around the world where it costs the most to be a Christian.
Please pray that these believers would experience the comfort and peace of the Lord as they endure this persecution.
Pray for the Lord’s spiritual and physical provision to them.
Pray that they would not be ruled by fear but by the power of God, His love and a sound mind.
Pray that God would glorify Himself through the testimonies of our brothers and sisters.
