The Indian state of Gujarat has long been an important center for trade, and their merchants have been sent all over the world. Because their commercial skills have been combined with their natural dedication, the Gujarati have become successful in business ventures internationally. They have literally spread over the entire world to several countries. Large populations now live in the UK and East Africa. Thousands also live in Australia.
Often people who have material wealth are less open to accepting the abundant life Christ offers. For that reason, there is a very low percentage of Gujarati believers anywhere in the world, including Australia.
Gujaratis are often shop owners and motel owners. Those who are willing to talk with them during their slower hours can have spiritual discussions and offer them gospel materials in Gujarati, their heart language.
"Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need." Hebrews 4:16
Pray for this people group to approach God’s throne of grace and receive the mercy and grace found in Jesus Christ.
Pray that Australian believers would reach out and share the love of Christ with the Gujaratis among them. Ask God to strengthen, encourage and protect the small number of Gujarati believers so that they can be salt and light to others. Pray that Gujarati businessmen would be evangelized and take the gospel to Gujaratis around the world. Pray the Lord would raise a Disciple Making Movement among the Australian Gujaratis in this decade.
