The Koiri believe they are the descendents of Kush, one of the twin sons of lord Rama. They receive the services of a Brahmin priest, who officiates over their life-cycle rituals and religious ceremonies. The majority of the Koiri are engaged in their traditional occupation of agriculture.
Nominal Christians, whether in India or in the West, may have negatively influenced the Koiri's perception of what it means to be a follower of Christ.
Sustained, focused prayer is needed to open the eyes of the Koiri community to their need and opportunity to know and follow Jesus Christ.
Those who look to him for help will be radiant with joy; no shadow of shame will darken their faces. Ps 34:5
May there be many from this people group who look only to the Lord for help, and may they be filled with joy and peace.
Pray for the Christian believers among the Koiri community, that they will have a strong and faithful testimony for the Lord, and will honor him with their lives. Pray for God's blessing, strengthening and healing of families and communities within Koiri people through the abundant life Jesus offers to all who call on His name. Pray they will increasingly hunger to know forgiveness for their sins and the new life offered through faith in Jesus Christ.
