Tigre, Eritrean of Eritrea
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.
Please pray that Ethiopian followers of Christ will be led by the Lord's Spirit to minister to the Tigre people of Eritrea. Pray the Lord will give Ethiopian Christians a passion to reach the Tigre for Christ.
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.
