Pray for 45 Christians Arrested in Adi Quala

[276] prayers in [18] nations have been posted for Arrested Christians.

On May 13, Eritrean security forces arrested 45 believers during a house-to-house search specifically targeting evangelical Christians in the town of Adi Quala. All of the Christians, including children, elderly men and a disabled woman, were taken to a nearby village. A Christian who tried to bring food to the group was himself arrested, and all are now being held without charge. During the month of May alone, 122 Christians have been arrested in Eritrea. All have been members of unregistered churches; only Catholic, Lutheran and Orthodox Christian churches are legal in Eritrea.
