Islamic State has released a video showing the militants executing 30 ‘people of the cross’ in Libya. The video claims that those who were killed were Ethiopian Christians; the Ethiopian government has confirmed that they were Ethiopian migrant workers, but the Jerusalem Post has reported that three of those killed were from Eritrea.
One contact in Libya has asked us: “Please support us in Libya with your prayers. Especially the Arabic-speaking congregations of migrants need prayer; these churches are mainly attended by Ethiopian and Eritrean Christians… Many of them are becoming frightened, weak, discouraged and disappointed. Pray that the Lord might strengthen us in our faith in this time of trial.”
Please Join Me in Praying:
- For comfort for the families of those who have been killed
- For strength for the church in Libya, particularly Arabic congregations
- For an end to violence in Libya
- For God to change the hearts of members of Islamic State and turn them to Him.
With many peaceful blessings
