Ethiopia

 53 14
 
Evangelical churches face some opposition from the Orthodox Church, which sees the fast growth of the Protestant Church as a threat. However, the main source of persecution is Islamic extremism, much of which is fuelled by external sources. The unprecedented shift of Islamism from Sunni to Wahhabism has resulted in increased intolerance towards Christians. More than 3,000 Christians were displaced when Muslim extremists set fire to 59 churches and 28 homes in Jimma in March.
Pray:
  • The unresolved conflict in the east is attracting extremist groups such as al-Shabaab from Somalia. Pray for a solution to this conflict.
  • There were reports of Christians being imprisoned on false charges. Pray that the authorities would act justly.
  • Open Doors provides Bibles and leadership training to the church. Pray that many will grow in the faith as a result.
 Help Christians where the need is greatest!

May the Light of the Truth penetrate this region with the Glorious Gospel of Jesus Christ, that it may yield a great Harvest of Souls for salvation in Christ. May the Spirit of the Lord, and the God of All Comfort be with them in Him in this region of the world that the Refuge in His Name be known among the nations. ” He sent His Word and Healed them and Delivered them from destruction” (Psalm 107:20)
  3. Ethiopia has often been called the original home of mankind due to various humanoid fossil discoveries like Lucy. It is also the capital of Africa, politically, economically as well as religious wise. Pray for a harmonious, united and peaceful Ethiopia, where all religions, languages and cultures of all Ethiopians are respected enjoyed. As Ethiopia goes, so does Africa.
  4. Lord, first I just want to thank You for Open Doors. I thank You that they were able to come alongside Pastor Tesafa and his wife and provide financial support in this difficult time. I pray that You would continue to heal their bodies and minds and that You would strengthen their resolve to continue serving You. I pray over their minds especially, that they would not be bound by anxiety or fear and that they would be able to forgive their attackers. Please also protect Pastor Tesafa and all of the other Ethiopian church leaders from violence and harm.
    I’m not entirely sure of the details of this conflict in the east, but I pray for Your peace over the situation. I pray that senseless violence and killing would stop, and that extremist groups would not be able to gain footholds in this region. I ask that You would intervene in this conflict and resolve it so that peace can again reign in this land.
    I pray for Your justice to be done in Ethiopia. I ask that any Christian – or anyone for that matter – who has been imprisoned on false charges, and I ask that You would move the authorities to act quickly and justly. I ask that You would bring truth to light and shine on any type of darkness that is seeking to conceal what really happened in these situations. Please also give strength and grace to the prisoners as they wait for justice, and help them to continue to trust You and rely on You during this time. I pray also for their families and loved ones – they need Your strength and grace as well. Help them not to become embittered towards You or lose their faith and trust in You.
    And finally, I pray for the continued work of Open Doors in Ethiopia. I pray for every aspect of the ministry, especially the training/equipping. I pray that all of the Bibles and leadership training that is done will equip Ethiopians to become leaders of the church and to be strong and mighty in their faith. I ask that You would keep them from false doctrine and any type of teaching that is against the truth. I pray for the right people to get connected with these resources and that they would take their studies seriously. Please continue to provide for Open Doors in Ethiopia and give them wisdom in terms of what resources to give and where. I ask these things in Jesus’ name, amen.
  5. It is amazing, when Christian colonialism ended as countries voted for their independance, how Satan slowly and cowardly, infiltred his agenda of murder in the form of the Muslim religion, one which wishes it could thrive with its own brand of perfectionism, but since it’s a complete counterfeit, it punishes itself by the use of bloodshed upon innocent victims, in the name of hatred, blasphemy, lies, honour killings and the rest of its darkness stemming from hell itself. A kingdom devided against itself cannot stand. “Oh Father God, we have no idea whatsoever as to what believers suffer in Africa and in so many other countries on the planet. To them, they are living in the tribulation period as we are still able to enjoy freedoms, though slowly being removed, nonetheless, we will never be able to comprehend the harassement followed by persecution and tortures and death in some cases. Oh God, please free us by the coming of Jesus. See their tears, hear their prayers, please strengthen these brave and bold martyrs are made in Your Image, even their killers are likewise. Oh Father, our King, let the Seed of Your Word grow in the hearts of those who hear Your Message, never to be plucked out of their souls. Help us be as strong as our SUFFERING brothers and sister in Christ, in Jesus’ Name. Thank You for Your great love for us all. Thank You for Heaven, our eternal home where You dwell and will receive us. AMEN.”
  6. Dear Father,
    I pray for our Christian brothers and sisters in Ethiopia tonight. Touch and encourage them Lord, to hold strong in their faith through You. With the conflict in the middle east continuing, more islamic extremist groups are rising and terrorizing and brutalizing Christians. Touch the leaders of these countries to realize that peace needs to come before the countries end up destroying themselves. These extremist groups use their religion of islam as a shield to promote all types of terrorist acts, cruelty, and murder. There is no truth in these types of actions. But Father, we know that these things are in Your hands and that Your Word in the Bible tells us that in the end days, these things will happen more and more frequently. Touch the authorities’ hearts to help calm the situation and to ensure Christians are not falsely imprisoned. Provide courage and cover for Open Doors to continue their work in countries such as Ethopia supplying them with Bibles and other materials to help them grow in their love for You. Let their hearts be cheered as brothers and sisters around the world pray for them.
    In Jesus’ Name,
    Amen
  7. Heavenly Father, The situation in Ethiopia and other areas around the world are so complex that it’s difficult to understand all the intricacies involved. But all situations where persecution and injustice reigns is only because they have not come to know you and enter in to a saving faith in your One and Only Son, Jesus. Only by entering in to a saving knowledge of Jesus can any of these issues be resolved. Heavenly Father, it is you, by the power of the Holy Spirit, who can change hearts that can result in an end to the suffering. Until individuals come to know Jesus as their Lord and Savior, injustice and persecution will remain. My prayer, Heavenly Father, is that you would open people’s hearts to Jesus. I pray for a supernatural outpouring of courage and perseverence to fall upon all the believers who are suffering under such dire circumstances. Please, Heavenly Father, lift them up and protect them in the shadow of your wings! Let no harm come to them, but instead let them be a powerful witness to those who do not know you. Give them a sincere and loving heart towards their enemies, that they would turn to you and enter into your salvation! I pray a peace to come upon these lands that only can come by knowing you! Though we know there will always be great suffering until Jesus returns, I pray that nothing endured in your name would be in vain. You are our good and gracious God, and you want all to come to you. I pray, Lord, that this would be so! Thank you, Heavenly Father, that though we see through a glass darkly, you have already won every battle. Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, and be mindful and prayerful towards those who know suffering for your namesake. Amen.
  8. Merciful Father,
    Please send healing to Tesafa and his congregation. Send help so that they may lead others to the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ and to the way everlasting. Embrace them so they are ever aware of your love and protection and strengthen the brethren who would comfort and encourage them with the love of Christ. In Jesus’s name I pray.
  9. Almighty Father in Heaven,
    I ask that you bring an unprecedented Peace to the country of Ethiopia as it has never experienced before ! May the Holy Spirit, the Comforter, descend upon this country with a Love Awakening that would touch the hearts of all Islamic believers that they would come to know the Lord Jesus Christ as their Saviour and Lord.
    We thank you , O Lord, for the dreams and visions and miracles that you have been performing for Islamic believers and, which consequently has brought many of them to the One True Faith which is in Yeshua, Your Son!
    We thank you for blessing Pastor Tesafa with your healing balm and, I pray that you would surround him and his family now with warring angels from Heaven to protect them and all followers of the Messiah who reside in Ethiopia!
    Remember this : Our God reigns !!!
  10. O LORD GOD ALMIGHTY, we lift up our brothers and sisters in Ethiopia in prayer to YOU. We ask that YOU protect and sustain them including Pastor Tesafa and other Church leaders. Give them courage and perserverance to live by faith during these difficult times especially those who have been imprisoned for Your name sake. To be strong in YOU and never give up hope. Help us to remain faithful in walking alongside of them when they need it the most.
    We praise YOU. YOU are above all things because YOU made all things. In JESUS name we pray, Amen
  11. Lord, I come praising You for the church in Ethiopia! Lord, please be with Tesafa and his family as he recovers from his injuries that were caused by hatred. Please let others who are in the same situation draw comfort from You. Lord, I pray for the unrest in this country and I pray that You would sending a healing hand to turn the tide and bring peace once again. The extremist minority groups are wreaking havoc on this nation. We pray that You would help the government to stand up to this terrible behavior and put a stop to it. Lord, please protect Your church in this country. Please let the resources that are available be multiplied and be made available for all in need. Thank You for Open Doors and ministries like it that help the people in these countries! Please continue to bless them! Also, please let there be unity among the majority Christian population in Ethiopia. There is power in numbers and if they unite in Christ’s name, then the gates of hell will not prevail against them! We thank You for Your awesomeness, power, love, and faithfulness! In Jesus’s Name, Amen!!!!
  12. Dear Christians: I am encouraged to read Christianity in your country is
    growing. May God show you favor among your fellowman in the work place and
    communities. Sue, Dickson, TN
  13. Dear Lord I thank you for all you did in my country Ethiopia. Thank you Lord for peaceful transition in government office also our sorrow as nation was heavy. We praise you for PM H/Mariam. Thank you Lord.

    UNIUS REI VS NIMROD BAAL IMF 666 -- Micah 5:1-6 [a]Marshal your troops now, city of troops, for a siege is laid against us. They will strike Israel's ruler, on the cheek with a rod. 2. "But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are small among the clans[b] of Judah, out of you will come for me, one who will be ruler over Israel, whose origins are from of old, from ancient times." 3. Therefore Israel will be abandoned until the time when she who is in labor bears a son, and the rest of his brothers return, to join the Israelites.

    God the Creator of the heavens and the earth and man said in the Holy Quran. (83) Say (O Muhammad): We believe in Allah (God) and That Which is revealed unto us and revealed unto Abraham and Ishmael That Which Was and Isaac and Jacob and the tribes, and That Which Was vouchsafed unto Moses and Jesus and Their prophets from the Lord. We make no distinction between any of them, and unto Him we have surrendered. (84)Surah Al-E-Imran - ANSWER - IF YOU were doing the works of God and the prophets? you would never have killed innocent people (Christians), but Satan is your father, because you do the same works that murderer of Muhammad had done, in fact, you do not follow the teachings of Jesus, it is impossible for a Muslim to enter, in heaven if despise the Bible, or the Gospel, but many Muslims Satanists, they burn the Bible and the Gospel!
