In 670, Umayyads of Damascus completed the first Islamic conquest of the North African coastal plain, settling in what is now Morocco. Arabs have ruled this region ever since, which includes the original Berber tribal groups of North Africa, some of whom were Christians before the Arab invasion. This cultural mix resulted in scholarly advances in science, mathematics, astronomy, geography and medicine.
Although Morocco allows people from other religions to have religious freedom, the king of Morocco has declared that all native Moroccans are Sunni Muslims. Historically, ministry in Morocco won individuals away from their families and gathered them into new churches. As a result, many view Christianity as a threat to their families and communities.
Christian businessmen may have opportunities to apply the model Jesus gave in Matthew 10 and Luke 10 to find persons and households of peace and bless whole families and households among these Arab peoples.
"The LORD bless you and keep you; the LORD make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you; the LORD lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace." Numbers 6:24-26
Pray this blessing on today’s people group.
Pray the Holy Spirit would work powerfully through the many people witnessing to the Moroccan Arabs. Pray Moroccan Arab believers would 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 a strong movement to Jesus would bring whole Moroccan Arab families and communities into a rich experience of God's blessing.
