Chechen, Nohchi in Russia

Chechens constitute the largest native ethnic group originating in the North Caucasus region. They refer to themselves as Nokhchii. Chechen society is structured around "tukhums" (unions of clans) and 130 teip, or clans. The Chechens are strongly Muslim, but each clan is led by a spiritual mystic. Some adhere to a Sufi tradition called Muridism.

Ministry Obstacles

The Chechen are strongly resistant to the good news about Jesus.

Outreach Ideas

Pray that a strong movement to Jesus will bring Chechen families and communities into a rich experience of God's blessings.

Pray for the followers of Christ

Pray for the few Christians among the Chechen, that they will be protected from harm and that their faith will be firmly established upon God's character and provision.

Pray for the entire people group

Pray for the Chechens to have their hearts softened, that they will begin to hunger to know Jesus and desire to follow his ways. Pray for peace for them.

Scripture Focus

"All the nations will be gathered before Him; and He will separate them from one another, as the shepherd separates the sheep from the goats." Matthew 25:32
