Ethiopia

Ethiopia is one of the world’s oldest known nations. After a series of coups, the Ethiopian People's Revolutionary Democratic Front (EPRDF) took control of the nation of almost 85 million people in 1991. The costly war with Eritrea in the late 1990s drained but unified the nation. The 2005 election of Prime Minister Meles was bitterly contested and alleged to be fraudulent.
The nation continues to be torn by social, political and economic crises. Ethiopia has the world’s fifth-highest number of people with HIV/AIDS. Seventy percent of the population is under the age of 30. Hostilities with neighbours Eritrea and Somalia cripple efforts to revive and modernize the country. Corruption has increased with economic growth, and the country’s resources are accumulating in the hands of a few.
One of the world’s first Christian nations, the Ethiopian Orthodox Church was the state church from 1270 until the 1974 revolution that deposed Emperor Haile Selassie. The new Marxist regime persecuted Christians, especially evangelicals, with many churches destroyed and congregations scattered. Since the Marxist regime’s collapse in 1991, there has been freedom for worship and witness. Evangelicals have grown tenfold since 1974.
Although Ethiopia has withstood Islamic advances for centuries, Muslims now target this nation for Islamization—educational, employment and financial inducements are offered and a massive mosque-building programme. Violent—even murderous—reactions against evangelical outreach create a climate of religious tension and fear.
In May 2009, an Ethiopian Christian was jailed for providing Muslims with Somali-language Bibles with covers that resembled the Qur’an. He was released in February 2010. After spending four months in jail, an Ethiopian Christian was sentenced in December 2010 to three years in prison for allegedly desecrating a Qur’an.

Prayer Requests

  • Pray revival and growth will be sustained among the Protestant and Independent churches and for divisions and carnality to be avoided.
  • Pray Christians would not be fearful of Muslim attempts to turn the nation toward Islam, but rather be a light to their communities, leading their Muslim neighbours to Christ.
  • Pray godly Christian leaders would rise up to lead and disciple the Church.

    [to all blasphemers: you were on Calvary: to express with certainty, your judgment: against Jesus? but, he is dead with infinite love also, for a piece of shit like you] Light of the world: in the darkness of the heart come and enlighten me, you are my only hope of life, remain with me forever. I'm here to praise, to adore you here, here to tell you that you are my God and only you are holy, you're wonderful and worthy glory are to me. King and King in glory in the history, you come down on earth among us, with humility you left your throne to show your love. I'm here to praise, to adore you here, here to tell you that you are my God; and only you are holy, you're wonderful and worthy glory are to me. I do not know how much it cost you dying on the cross there for me.

    [terrorism of Al Quaeda: for Saudi imperialism] video: "Terrorists of the USA kill dozens of people in a great attack to destabilize the government of Syria"]], Two powerful explosions hit the region of Qazaz in Damascus on Thursday, killing around 55 people and leaving hundreds injured. "Two terrorist explosions hit Damascus near al-Qazaz intersection at the southern ring-road", state news agency, SANA, said, adding that the explosions "took place at a densely populated area as they coincided with the employees and the students are going to their jobs and schools". Television footage at the site of the blasts showed an apocalyptic scene with charred bodies and the carcasses of vehicles with smoke still rising from them. STOP BLOODSHED. The Head of the UN mission in Syria, Major General Robert Mood appealed for help to stop the bloodshed in the country, as he visited the site of the attacks.

    [terrorism of Al Quaeda: for Saudi imperialism] video: "Terrorists of the USA kill dozens of people in a great attack to destabilize the government of Syria"]],"This is yet another example of the suffering brought upon the people of Syria from acts of violence", the Norwegian general said as he visited the site of one of the blasts. "We, the world community, are here with the Syrian people and I call on everyone within and outside Syria to help stop this violence", he said, according to a statement. Mood surveyed the damage left by the explosions which came just a day after the Norwegian general escaped unharmed when a roadside bomb exploded as he led a team of UN observers into the southern flashpoint city of Daraa. Six Syrian soldiers escorting them were reportedly hurt in Wednesday's bombing.
