Lord, it is easy to see that the Rashaida are among Africa’s Forgotten Peoples, for currently there is no overt presentation of the gospel among them. These beautiful people, veiling themselves from society, need a friend who cares about their spiritual condition.
Lord Jesus, You are their friend for You sit at the right hand of the Father in heaven making intercession for them. Your eye is upon the Rashaida! You have a plan for their redemption, a plan to establish worshipping groups of believers among them.
You were given a promise in Psalm 2:8: “Ask of me and I will make the nations (Rashaida) your inheritance.” You in turn gave us a command in Matthew 28:19 to “Go and make disciples of all nations.” This includes the Rashaida.
Jesus, open our eyes to see the spiritual depravity of the Rashaida; open our ears to hear Your call to the Rashaida harvest field; open our hearts to believe and pray for messengers to carry the good news of salvation to their families and villages.
May our willingness to go, pray and give of our resources be instrumental in securing the reward for Your suffering upon the Cross. May Your kingdom reign in the hearts of the Rashaida.
We lay this request before You and wait in expectation for the answer, knowing that our Heavenly Father is faithful to all His promises. Amen.
