Description: The Saharawi are the indigenous inhabitants of Western Sahara, a disputed territory which was once claimed by both Morocco and Mauritania. They are made up of numerous tribes of Berber origin which over centuries have intermarried with West Africans and Arabs. They are united by their common language Hassaniya Arabic, also spoken in Mauritania.

Prayer Points:
• Life for the Saharawi has been difficult due to a decades long war for independence. Pray that in the midst of this struggle they might seek the only lasting hope for peace found in Jesus Christ.
• Tens of thousands of Saharawi still live in refugee camps in Algeria and Mauritania, where many still train for war to retake their homeland. Though access to these groups is tightly controlled, pray for doors to be opened supernaturally that will enable them access to the gospel.
• As in Mauritania, Saharawi society is divided by occupational castes, in which those at the bottom are virtual or sometimes literally slaves of the higher castes. Pray that both master and slave might find redemption and freedom. through Jesus.

A Prayer: Heavenly Father, may the peace you long to bring to the Saharawi become reality through the proclamation of your Word in Christ.
Each year 6,000 Saharawi die without Christ.
