The population of Eritrea is equally divided between Christian (Orthodox, Roman Catholic and Lutheran Protestants) and Muslim religions. The largest Muslim group is the Tigre, the only Eritrean or Ethiopian Semitic people which is not Orthodox. They are related to the Christian Tigrinya, but are culturally distant from them.
Cultural barriers are high. These can be overcome, but it usually requires much time.
Pray for Tigre believers to become effective and fruitful in sowing God's Word among their own families and communities to fuel a movement of God's blessings spreading from household to household.
"Jesus said to them, Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I am." John 8:58
Pray for this people group to understand that Jesus is not just another human prophet but is the eternal God.
The few Tigre believers live in trying circumstances among their Muslim family and friends. Pray for them. Pray they will keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. Pray the Tigre people will have sufficient food in an area that often experiences famine. Pray for rain, and pray for improved living conditions.
