Description: The Tekna are the southernmost Berber tribal confederation based in Morocco. Their nomadic range includes the northern part of Western Sahara and the southern part of Algeria. They speak both Tachelhit, a Berber dialect, and Hassaniya Arabic.

Prayer Points:
• There are eight major tribes among the Tekna divided into two rival alliances. They have a fierce loyalty to their confederation, greater than any loyalty to a particular nation-state. Pray for the leaders of these tribes that they might desire to lead their people into the fulness of truth found in Christ.
• The Tekna see themselves as the gaurdians of the smaller and more vulnerable Berber tribes in the region. Pray that this role might become a bridge for the gospel as a movement to Christ begins among the Tekna.
• Three hundred years ago the Tekna were employed by the Moroccan sultan to subdue and islamize the Senegal region of West Africa. Pray that they might completely give their allegiance to Christ and work for the redemption of the Muslim nations in their influence.

A Prayer: Heavenly Father, draw the Tekna into the irresitable grace, love and mercy found in your Son Jesus.
Each year 6,000 Tekna Berbers die without Christ.
