Sonar (Hindu traditions) in India

pronounced: suh-NAR

The name of the community is derived from the word sona meaning gold, and the people who work with gold are called Sunar or Sonar. Traditionally they are goldsmiths, but with the availability of better educational facilities the Sonar have become inclined towards education. They claim their social status next to that of the Brahmin. Divorce and remarriage are allowed.

Ministry Obstacles

A Sonar follower of Christ may lose his place in society, and be ostracized. This is especially an issue for high caste individuals.

Outreach Ideas

Pray the few believers among the Sonar will grow in sharing and discussing God's Word with their families and clans.

Scripture Focus

But as for me, I will always proclaim what God has done; I will sing praises to the God of Jacob. Ps 75:9

Scripture Prayer

Pray for many from today’s people group to tell of God’ wondrous deeds to their families.

Prayer Focus

There are few if any Christian believers among the Sonar, but pray for the ones that will soon be a part of this community. Pray they be well instructed in the faith, and will grow in maturity and in numbers. Pray they live holy lives. Pray for the Sonar community to be humble enough to acknowledge their need for forgiveness of sin, and that they understand the provision for forgiveness that God has provided.
