30 Days of Prayer for the Muslim World: The Fulani

May the Holy Spirit guide us as we pray for the largest nomadic people group in the world, the Fulani.

Although I have met several Fulani, I didn’t realize the numerical greatness of their people group.  Are you ready for their vastness?

There are 35,000,000 fabulous Fulani.  The African Sahel (the region between the Sahara and the Sudanian Savanna) is their home.

The Fulani men work as herdsmen, moving from place to place to provide the best food and water for their sheep, goats and cattle.  This work takes them away from their families and villages for nine or ten months a year.

At the same time, the Fulani women and children live and work in their villages.  Simply providing food and water requires most of their time and strength.

I have met two Christian missionaries (both with Ph.D degrees in cross-cultural disciplines) who lived with and among the Fulani for twenty-five years.  In twenty-five years of faithful nomadic life and ministry this ministry couple saw less than ten conversions to Christ.

“Lord, open the eyes of your fabulous Fulani people to see the salvation provided for them in birth, life, death, burial and resurrection of Jesus.”
