Daily Topic for February 12, 2018

Matt 7:7-8, RSV
Ask, and it will be given you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For every one who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.

Pray that God will send his ambassadors to the Gorgal people to teach them by example how to ask blessings from a loving heavenly father. Pray for living examples of believers among Fulbe peoples who know how to keep on asking until they receive, seeking until they find, and knocking until every door is opened to all the resources of heaven needed to live the lives God has designed for them.

Gorgal Fulbe People

by BK

Spread across the territories of Central and Western Africa, bounded by the Sahara Desert to the North and the Central African Republic to the south, the Gorgal Fulbe people live out their lives. Once a nomadic people, the Gorgal have settled down into a semi-sedentary lifestyle, often amongst the weaker tribes they have conquered.
The Gorgal have a long history of raising livestock and continue that practice to this day. The task of caring for the animals goes to the men, as does the planting, raising, and harvesting of crops. During the dry months, the young men take the cattle in search of water elsewhere in an attempt to protect the local water supply. The women, meanwhile, take care of domestic matters such as cooking, maintaining the huts, weaving, spinning, making soap, and caring for young children.
The Gorgal are devout Muslims, though their understanding of Islam is tainted by animism. Deviation from Islam is not tolerated, and embracing Christianity or other outside religious ideas are not a common practice. What education the Gorgal receive typically consists of learning to pray and recite the Qur’an.

Pray that the Gorgal people will soon encounter the love of God and be softened to the message of the gospel. Pray that they would encounter Jesus in dreams and visions, and that a radically loving and evangelistic community of Gorgal believers would be raised up to reach their own people.
