Arab, Moroccan in Morocco

In 670 AD, the Umayyads of Damascus completed the first Islamic conquest of the North African coastal plain, settling in what is now Morocco, which they called "Maghreb al Aqsa" or "The Far West." Arabs and Berbers have shared this region since, and at one point ruled most of Northwest Africa. This cultural mix resulted in scholarly advances in science, mathematics, astronomy, geography, and medicine.

Ministry Obstacles

Much ministry in Morocco has focused on winning individuals away from their families and gathering them into new churches. This has fueled fear of Christianity as an invading threat to their families and communities.

Outreach Ideas

Christian businessmen may have opportunities to apply the model Jesus gave in Mt. 10 and Lk. 10 to find persons and households of peace and bless whole families and households among these Arab / Berber peoples.

Pray for the followers of Christ

Pray for the Holy Spirit to work powerfully through the many people witnessing to the Moroccan Arabs. Pray for Moroccan Arab believers to become effective and fruitful in sowing God's word among their families and communities to fuel a movement of God's blessing spreading from household to household.

Pray for the entire people group

Pray that a strong movement to Jesus will bring whole Moroccan Arab families and communities into a rich experience of God's blessing.

Scripture Focus

"That all the peoples of the earth may know that the Lord is God; there is no one else." 1 Kings 8:60
