Rajput means "son of a ruler." Since India became an independent nation in 1947, the Garhwali Rajputs have had to find other types of employment besides being landowners and military officers. They encourage higher education for their sons and daughters.
The Garhwali Rajputs consider themselves to be devout Hindus, and their Hindu religious system is a large part of their identity. They need to be humble enough to confess their sins and seek the only Savior, Jesus Christ. The Garhwali Rajputs need to hear the life-changing message of Jesus Christ in a way that doesn't add barriers of lack of understanding or cultural acceptance. They must come to see that their Hindu faith or wealth will not give them the love and spiritual prosperity they desire.
Within the world of academics, there is opportunity to forge relationships and eventually friendships to open doors for the gospel.
"Restore to me the joy of your salvation, and uphold me with a willing spirit." Psalm 51:12
Pray that when some from this people group accept the ways of God that they will be refreshed with joy and share it with others.
Pray for the Lord Jesus to speak clearly to Garhwali Rajput in ways they cannot miss or avoid and to reveal himself to their family leaders, giving them a desire to be children of their God and creator. Pray for Almighty God's Spirit to sweep through this needy people group, drawing multitudes into Disciple Making Movements throughout India.
