Pray for Ethiopian Believers’ Court Hearing on Jan 13

January 5, 2016 by Janelle P in Africa

Dear friends, a while back we asked you to engage on behalf of three Christians in Ethiopia that have been found guilty on false charges of setting fire to an Orthodox church in May of this year. They have been sentenced to up to 9 years for their “crime”.

During an appeal hearing on October 23, judges once more asked for more files from the lower courts in order to gain full understanding into the proceedings until now. This is the second time the judges asked for these files, but the responsible parties failed to present them. The next hearing was scheduled for December 23. The three men continue to face harsh circumstances in prison notorious as a place where those opposed to the prior communist era government were tortured and killed.

The case was once more postponed and will be heard again on January 13 due to the fact that once more not all files had been received.

Please continue to pray for our brothers to remain strong in the faith and for the Lord to fulfill His purpose for them while they languish in jail. Pray that they and their families would not be overwhelmed with discouragement.

  1. Our Father, I pray for your love to heal this woman kidnapped and tortured by ISIS soldiers. I ask in Jesus’ name that you move to soothe her traumatized heart, mind, body, and soul. I pray for her to know you are still here, still real, and will still move to save her and her family. I pray for her children, wherever they are, that your mighty hand will find them and bring them home to their mother. I pray for the soldiers that your spirit will move in theirr minds and hearts to convince them of their evil doings and save them to become your soldiers wearing the armor of God for your kingom. I pray with conviction of your mighty power to save, of your wisdom, and of your perfect will. I pray these things with the great faith of a mustard seed, believing mountains will be moved. Thank you, O Lord; thank you. Thy will be done. Amen.

  2. Dear Heavenly Father, LORD, “YOU” give me beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness ; that I may be called a tree of righteousness, Your planting, that “YOU” may be glorified.(Isaiah.61:3). I delight greatly in the “LORD”; my soul rejoices in my “GOD”. For “HE” has clothed me with garments of salvation and arrayed me in a robe of righteousness.(Isaiah.61:10). I (JUDAH) will no more be termed Forsaken, nor shall my land be called desolate anymore. I will be called Hephzibah ( My delight is in her), and my land be called Beulah (married); for the “LORD” delights in me, and my land shall be married ( owned and protected by the “LORD”). (Isaiah.62″4). “LORD”, “YOU” are the potter and I am the clay; I am the work of “YOUR” hand. (Isaiah. 64:8). I am the redeemed of the “LORD”, and I am a sought out, a city not forsaken. (Isaiah.62:12). Precious “LORD”, YOU, rejoice over me, and weeping and crying has departed from my life. (Isaiah.65:19). I am a new creation in “CHRIST”, and my former life is not remembered, nor does it come into mind. (Isaiah. 65:17). Dear heavenly father, now I ask that “YOU’ will please heal my dear sister and her family in “CHRIST JESUS”, our “LORD”, please send “YOUR” precious “HOLY SPIRIT’, to bring her sweet comfort and “YOUR” wonderful warmth. Please heal her heart, spirit, soul and mind. I pray that “YOU”, “JESUS”, will strengthen her by “YOUR” “HOLY SPIRIT’ and be the lifter of her head. JESUS” “YOU” are her healer, comforter, and strength. Touch “YOUR” daughter right now and comfort her in those dark places, shine “YOUR” light ever so brightly so that she will know that “YOU” are with her and that “YOU” have never left her or forsaken her. Be the lifter of her head and be the healer of her heart “JESUS”, in “YOUR” name I pray.
