Variety is the spice of life, and there is certainly much variety in the world’s spiciest region, South Asia Islam controls the hearts of many of the peoples of Bangladesh. Buddhism was born in India, spread to Nepal, China, Bhutan, and Southeast Asia but it was embraced mainly in East Asia. Hinduism, that diverse cluster of traditional religions, has close to a billion adherents in India and Nepal. The high caste Brahmins may be harder to reach for Christ than any Muslim people, while lower caste peoples turn to Him by the thousands. Some of the peoples of southern and northeastern India are Christian, but only two percent of that great nation have embraced Christ and over 2,900 Least-Reached Peoples remain here in this region. Indian Christians are making heroic efforts to reach this region for Christ and God is at work.
Pray the Holy Spirit would cause the Loba to become dissatisfied with their traditional religions and to make them hungry for the Bread of Life.
Pray that the Lord will call people who are willing to go to Mustang. Pray for Christian tourists and hikers, who will share the love of Jesus with the Loba to light the darkness with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Pray that God will raise up qualified linguists to translate the entire Bible into the Loba language since the Loba currently have no scriptures in their language.
Pray the Lord will raise up a strong local church among the Loba that will bear faithful witness of His love and care.
Pray that God will open the hearts of the governmental leaders in Nepal, as well as the local leaders of Mustang, to the truth.
Radio & Other Audio Ministries
Pray for God to empower these audio ministries such as Words of Hope, Gospel Recordings, Faith Comes by Hearing, Audio Scriptures, and many others to proclaim the gospel in relevant ways. Pray particularly for those which connect with those not reached in any other way.
Thank God for all those who serve Him as itinerate evangelists and pray for God to thrust forth many more. Pray that they live the message, as they are His voice to bring Good News and Hope to those living in spiritual darkness.
Pray for God to thrust forth many more laborers being raised up as new believers. Pray that they are compelled by His love to go to others who still have not heard and share Jesus as the Way, the Truth and the Life. Pray for God to meet all their needs according to His riches.
Pray for the Lambadi-speaking Banjara, and other groups who are considered outcasts of society but who are precious and beloved by Our Lord Jesus. Pray that they will know His love and acceptance and find hope and healing in Him.
People of Peace
Pray for God to direct workers to those who, like Nehemiah, had their hearts prepared to hear and receive the Gospel. Ask God to give messengers courage to share and disciple others so they also may reach out to those that have not yet heard.
