Pray for Ethiopia - facebook page

An attempted coup in late June resulted in dozens of deaths and 250 arrests. The coup was led by Brigadier General Asamnew Tsige, killed during the event, who was fighting for the cause of the Amhara people. Since Prime Minister Ahmed came to power, his reforms have lifted bans on political parties, released political prisoners and seen exiled rebel groups return. Each group, who often represents different ethnic groups within the nation, in turn are now demanding more power and resources for their own groups.

Pray that the government will have great wisdom and discernment to know how to bring this nation into order, equality and stability (The Bible, Romans 2:11).
