[Today’s Prayer] “More than 50,000 people flee in armed conflict in northern Ethiopia”

AFP reported on the 23rd (local time) that more than 50,000 refugees have been displaced by armed clashes between Amhara and Tigray forces in northern Ethiopia.

“Since April 13-14, more than 50,000 refugees have fled their homes in the Allamata region due to armed conflict between the two sides," the United Nations said in a statement the previous day, citing authorities in the region. "The refugees are in a terrible humanitarian crisis," they have said. "We need extensive humanitarian aid for the survival of thousands of women and children."


It had been scheduled to withdraw from the Allamata region after the civil war ended with a peace treaty in November 2022, but has so far delayed it and remains in control, arguing with Tigray forces.


The Ethiopian government declared a six-month state of emergency in Amhara as the fighting between militias and government forces began in August of the same year, and it has been extended by four months in early February.

All my bones shall say, “O Lord, who is like you, delivering the poor from him who is too strong for him, the poor and needy from him who robs him?”

Psalm 35:10

Lord, You deliver the poor. We see that there are more than 50,000 refugees (including women and children) from the conflict in Northern Ethiopia.

We hear many cries of pain from all nations due to conflict and war. Ethiopia is also in a situation where they need many humanistic aid.

Lord, You are the One who executes justice for the fatherless and widows. Would You listen to the cries of pain and set them free from all oppression and misery.

May the refugees be filled with all the materials and help they need as they lost their homes and are lost. Would You also protect them from their sorrow so that they will not die without knowing the Gospel.

Through those who are like You by loving each and every of the 50,000 refugees of Ethiopia, would You allow for the love of our Lord to be quickly spread.

Would You come as the light of the world and shine Your light to those who cause conflict and follow the lust of the body and to the spirit of death, and may we see works of those who are dying without hope come alive with the Gospel that gives life.
