The Berbers of North Africa are the original inhabitants of the land. Berbers are found throughout North Africa with large populations in the mountain and rural areas of Morocco and Algeria. There are also 2 million residing in France. Berbers are the indigenous people of North Africa, dating back thousands of years. They call themselves the Amazigh, which means ‘free men’. Many were once Christian. St. Augustine of Hippo was Berber. Pray that Augustine’s prayer would be prayed by many Berbers: “Thou hast made us for thyself, O Lord, and our heart is restless until it finds its rest in Thee.” (Psalm 62:5 “Yes, my soul, find rest in God”)
