"Arabized" Tuareg are those who have adopted the Arabic language as their own. At least to this extent, they have become a part of Arab culture. Before French colonization, the Tuareg were organized into loose confederations, each consisting of a dozen or so tribes. Following the independence of African countries in the 1960s, Tuareg territory was artificially divided into modern nations: Niger, Mali, Algeria, Libya, and Burkina Faso. Each Tuareg clan is made up of several family groups, led by their collective chiefs.
The Tuareg tribes have strong tribal identity, and Islam is part of that self-identification.
Perhaps African believers will be burdened to carry the message of Christ to the Tuareg tribes. Pray that tribal animosities will be overcome.
Pray for the followers of Jesus soon to be found among the Tuareg tribes: that the Lord will send qualified pastors and teachers, that they will be zealous to follow Christ, and they will live holy lives in the power of the Lord's Spirit.
Pray for the Tuareg tribes of Africa, that they will increasingly desire to know Jesus, the Son of God, deity. Pray He will reveal himself to them, and will send Christians to help them.
Scripture Prayers for the Tuareg, Arabized in Niger.
