Mahratta Pawar in India

pronounced: pah-WAHR mah-RAH-tah

Pawar is a surname for those from the Pawar Mahratta subgroup. Some of them claim to be Rajputs, another network of communities with high status. Mahrattas were once powerful warriors, and today the state of Maharashtra is named after them.

Ministry Obstacles

High status and pride in one's status often get in the way of people humbly coming to Christ like a little child.

Outreach Ideas

There are believers in Mumbai who can reach out to the various Mahratta communities. The JESUS Film, gospel recordings, and other materials are in the Marathi language.

Scripture Focus

Listen to me, O my people, while I give you stern warnings. O Israel, if you would only listen to me! Ps 81:8

Scripture Prayer

Pray for this people group to heed God’s warning and listen to Him!

Prayer Focus

Pray that believers will demonstrate the fruit and the power of the Holy Spirit as they interact with their Hindu family members and neighbors. * Pray for grace and truth expanding into the entire Pawar Mahratta society as all believers learn to love others. * Pray that churches and believers will bless their entire people group in such a way that God's love will change the Pawar Mahrattas like yeast changes dough. * Pray for networks of believing families and fellowships that will throw the doors open for others to follow Jesus.
