Urgent: Your prayers this week will change lives


Urgent: Your prayers this week will change lives
Dear friend, Thank you so much for your campaigning and prayers for some desperate situations in the last few weeks. This week has been filled with highs and lows – the news of Meriam’s release, followed swiftly the family’s detention at Khartoum airport 24 hours later. Meriam isn’t the only person who needs God’s intervention on her behalf and your prayers are vital – will you continue to pray for the following situations with us?
SUDAN: Meriam Ibrahim and family still detained Meriam Ibrahim, whose death sentence for apostasy was quashed on Monday, is still being held after being detained along with her family at the airport on Tuesday. Meriam is being investigated by the police for alleged irregularities with her travel documents. The police have refused to release the family on bail whilst they carry out their investigation.  

  • Pray that Meriam and her family would be unconditionally released by the police and that the police would conclude their investigation without charging Meriam.

ERITREA: Your prayers this week could change Eritrea’s future On Thursday the United Nations (UN) Human Rights Council (HRC) will discuss, and hopefully adopt, a strong resolution condemning the continuing, severe and widespread human rights violations committed by Eritrea against its citizens and calling for the establishment of a Commission of Inquiry to investigate the violations outlined in reports by the Special Rapporteur on human rights in Eritrea. This is a bold step and one which needs to be underpinned by prayer if it’s to be successful.

  • Pray that the resolution calling for the establishment of a Commission of Inquiry would be adopted by consensus at the Human Rights Council this week;
  • Pray that if the resolution goes to a vote this week, HRC members would vote unanimously for a Commission of Inquiry.

IRAN: Behnam Irani returned to prison after disappearance As you may know Pastor Behnam Irani, who was jailed on political charges, was assaulted earlier this month and was removed to an unknown location. He has now been returned to Ghezal Hesar, but his physical condition and whereabouts during the time of his disappearance are unclear.

  • Pray for emotional and physical healing for Pastor Irani, and for strength and comfort for his wife and young children.
           
CUBA: Reverend Mario Felix Lleonart Barroso and his wife detained by authorities You may remember Reverend Mario Felix Lleonart Barroso and his wife Yoaxis from previous emails and our Response newsletter – they are religious freedom activists who have regularly been targeted by the Cuban government.  They were detained by police last weekend, and although they were released two hours later, police have confiscated their computer. We’re concerned that state security officials could plant information on their computer in order to justify criminal charges.

  • Pray that the laptops are returned quickly and that no information is planted which could endanger Mario Felix and Yoaxis;
  • Pray for protection for Mario Felix, Yoaxis and their two daughters.

If you’re a twitter user and want to encourage the couple, please tweet them an encouragement to @maritovoz and @yoaxism
