Megh (Hindu traditions) in India

pronounced: meeg

The Megh (or Meghwal) are a Scheduled Caste whose primary occupation is farming. They worship Ram Devji and Bankar Mataji as the chief god and goddess of the community. Nowadays, the caste prejudice against them has died down to a large extent except in some remote areas. They have achieved moderate progress in education and their literacy rate has been improving.

Ministry Obstacles

The New Testament, Jesus film, and other tools are available. Workers are needed to take the Gospel message to this community.

Outreach Ideas

Pray the Lord will give Megh families understanding and responsive hearts as they hear about the love of Christ.

Scripture Focus

For the honor of your name, O Lord, forgive my many, many sins. Ps 25:11

Scripture Prayer

Pray for many from today’s people group to understand that they are sinful and need God as their savior.

Prayer Focus

There may be no current believers among the Hindu Megh, but pray for those who will be soon be found. Pray they will accurately understand the message of the Gospel of Christ, and be able to teach it accurately to others in their community. Pray for an improvement in living conditions for this low caste community, for educational opportunities for the children, and employment opportunities for the adults.
