Twen Theodros has spent 13 years behind bars in Eritrea. Despite having suffered brutal treatment, this young woman, who is described as a “precious, lovely Christian” by those who know her, is more concerned about others than for her own wellbeing.

VOM’s partner, Release International, recently managed through contacts to find out how she is doing in prison and how we could pray for her. Her reply was simple yet deeply humbling: she said she had only one prayer request – that God would be glorified in Eritrea!

Twen, who is in her thirties, and the other Eritrean prisoners of faith need our prayers. Pray for their release but also that they would remain united. Sometimes there is conflict among the prisoners simply because they are locked up together for 24 hours, day after day.

  • Praise God for this remarkable woman, whose love and witness are glorifying God in a harsh Eritrean prison and inspiring fellow believers.
  • Ask the Lord to minister to Twen and her fellow prisoners to give them patience, strength and even joy in the midst of suffering.
  • Pray for the authorities in Eritrea, that they would demonstrate, mercy, compassion and justice to these prisoners.

Writing to prisoners is a great way to provide encouragement to believers who are imprisoned for their faith, it also acts as a Christian witness to guards and authorities.
