Unreached of the Day  5/08/2021

Kabyle Berbers in Algeria

The Kabyle name derives from the name of the mountainous region in the north of Algeria, which they traditionally inhabit. The traditional economy of the area is based on orchards and olive trees, and tapestry or pottery. The area was gradually taken over by the French from 1857, despite vigorous local resistance. The armed Algerian revolutionary resistance to French colonialism, the National Liberation Front (FLN) recruited several of its historical leaders in this region.

Prayer Focus

Pray for the followers of Jesus among the Kabyle Berbers, that they would be faithful to fellowship together, and would grow in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. Pray they would live a life worthy of their calling in Christ. Pray for laborers to have wisdom in applying the pattern Jesus gave in Matthew 10:7-14 and Luke 10:5-11, leading to blessing among Kabyle households. Pray they would have an increasing desire for the One who is "the Way, the Truth, and the Life." Pray the Spirit of Christ would satisfy this desire.
