Description: The Dyerma are a Nilo-Saharan people related to the Songhai, who live in along the Niger river valley. Over the centuries they have absorbed many neighboring tribes which form the dozens of distinct subgroups that make up the Dyerma people.

Prayer Points:
• Only about 15% of the Zerma are literate, and over the last decade mission agencies have produced a variety of discipleship programd and resources to reach those who learn primarily through oral means. Pray for the wide acceptance and use of these resources by Zerma evangelists and disciple-makers.
• Plans are underway to produce local radio and TV programs for the Zerma. Pray for creativity and the right personnel to produce these programs.
• Though the Zerma embraced Islam in the 11th century, they are still controlled by spirit-possession cults which dominate their spiritual life. Pray for deliverance from these traditional powers of darkness which hold sway over their hears and minds.

A Prayer: Heavenly Father, may your blessing be poured out upon the emerging Zerma church. Strengthen their unity and empower their witness for you among their people.
Each year 29,000 Dyerma die without Christ.
