Moor in Mauritania

pronounced: moorh

The Moors are very proud people, conveying a sense of superiority to others in the area. Within their society, the Koran is faithfully followed. The term "Moor" is generally applied to any person, regardless of skin color, who speaks one of the Hassaniya dialects.

Ministry Obstacles

Scripture availability is limited in the language of the Moors, and access to the Moors is limited.

Outreach Ideas

Pray for Moor believers to become effective and fruitful in sowing God's Word among their own families and communities to fuel a movement of God's blessings spreading from household to household.

Scripture Focus

Finally, dear brothers and sisters, we ask you to pray for us. Pray that the Lord’s message will spread rapidly and be honored wherever it goes, just as when it came to you. 2 Thes 3:1

Scripture Prayer

Make this your prayer for this people group.

Prayer Focus

Pray for the relatively few believers among the Moors, that they may be like-minded, being one in spirit and purpose, looking not only to their own interests but also to the interests of others. Pray each individual in the Moor community may be prepared for the gospel message when it comes to them.
