Jadhav Mahrattas are a forward caste, which means they have high status in this Hindu culture. The name Mahratha comes from the word "invincible." They have a proud military history, and they have had good status for many centuries. They work mainly in agriculture and selling crops while some work in business, government service, some as laborers. They have a council of elders to look after their interests.
High status, especially when it comes from a religious system, can be a barrier to people humbly looking to Jesus for spiritual answers.
The Jadhav Mahrattas often live in Mumbai, a huge city where there are many believers. These believers can make a special effort to reach this people group and disciple them in His ways.
Help us, O God of our salvation! Help us for the glory of your name. Save us and forgive our sins for the honor of your name. Ps 79:9
Pray that many from this people group will call out to the Lord as desperately as the psalmist did in this verse.
Pray for Holy Spirit anointed believers from the Jadhav Mahrattas to change their society from within. * Pray for spiritual hunger among this people group. * Pray for a "Book of Acts" type of movement to Christ among the Jadhav Mahrattas that will leave them thankful and devoted to the Lord of Heaven. * Pray for a movement in which the Holy Spirit leads and empowers disciples to make more disciples.
