From the 30 Days of Prayer guide: “We are of the Masalit tribe, one of the largest and poorest tribes in Darfur, one of the most unreached regions of the world. Darfur is home to 8 million people and dozens of Muslim tribes. But war has ravaged the land, and the Masalit are now a scattered people. Some have become refugees in the West, others brave the Mediterranean Sea with small boats and big dreams; some go north into the Sahara looking for gold, and others migrate to the slums of Africa’s megacities. But we do not forget who we are: We take with us our homeland and our heritage, always hoping to return.”
Pray for God’s blessing on the Masalit, for rain and a good harvest, and for the Masalit to come to know Him and praise Him.
But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light [1 Peter 2:9 (NIV)].
