Eritrean Christians are calling for a worldwide day of prayer and fasting for Christians prisoners in Eritrea on Aug. 5, according to a UK-based Christian persecution watchdog group.
“On this special day, we are calling all to pray and fast for Christians and Ministers of the gospel who are behind bars of Eritrean Prisons,” the organizers stated in their website, www.erishalom.com. “Through the information we are getting everyday […] we have learnt that the condition of Christians who are detained is getting worse and worse.
I don’t know anything about the group, but we ought to remember our brothers and sisters who are suffering for the cause of Christ in the world today.
