The Kamboh or Kamboj are a Hindu and Sikh people who live in northwest India. They claim to be descendants of royalty from Persia. During the times of the Mughuls and British, the Kamboh served in high-ranking positions in administration and in the military. Today many Kamboh own land that is worked by lower castes. The Kamboh are employed in careers of government, education, law, business, and the military. The primary language of the Kamboh is Hindi. They also speak English and regional Indian languages.
The Kamboh occupy a high place in Indian society. Their pride, wealth and position may prevent them from humbly coming to Christ.
Bibles, literature, films and radio programs exist in Hindi. Hindu background believers can share with the Kamboh the blessings only found in Christ.
You keep track of all my sorrows. You have collected all my tears in your bottle. You have recorded each one in your book. Ps 56:8
Pray for members of this people group to turn to the Lord with their sorrows and trust Him to wipe away their tears and replace it with eternal joy.
Pray that any existing Kamboh believers might increase in numbers and that all Kamboh would have the opportunity to hear the gospel in a way they both understand and will accept. * Pray that the Kamboh leaders will come to Jesus Christ and lead others to Him. * Pray for Kamboh families to be drawn to Jesus and to the Bible to find out more about Him. * Pray the Kamboh people will understand that Jesus desires to bless their families and communities, not harm them.
