Pray for the Eritrean
Persecuted Church
Especially pray for Christian resources in the Tigrinya language for Eritrean youth.
Eritrea is the country on the Horn of Africa, located on the Red Sea.  Eritrea’s coastal location has long been important in its history and culture—a fact reflected in its name, which is an Italianized version of Mare Erythraeum, Latin for “Red Sea.” The Red Sea was the route by which Christianity and Islam reached the area.  The state of Eritrea is bordered by Sudan in west, by Ethiopia in south and by Djibouti in south east. The country shares maritime borders with Saudi Arabia and Yemen. The former Italian colony became part of a federation with Ethiopia in 1947, in 1952 Eritrea was annexed by Ethiopia. The country became independent in 1993.
