Today we will pray for the cleanest people in India! The Dhobis have always been the caste that performed laundry services by hand, but today their livelihood is being challenged by washing machines, which are now available to their forward caste customers.
Their livelihood is being threatened, and this can either make them become more dedicated to their religious system, or it might make them look for fresh answers.
Believers with the means to do it can help train the Dhobis in new skills that they will need if they lose their ability to make a living. That would make them see their good works and give praise to the Father.
"Even when I walk through the darkest valley, I will not be afraid, for you are close beside me." Psalm 23:4
Fear is a liar! Pray that this people group will be fear-free when they decide to follow the Lord.
The vast majority of these Dalits remain Hindu, but they have contact with other communities. There are believers among many of India's low status Dalit communities that can take the loving Christ to these at-risk people. Pray for Dhobis to form Discovery Bible studies and learn to think biblically. Pray for a powerful Disciple Making Movement among Dhobis.
