Bedia (Hindu traditions) in India

pronounced: BAY-dee-uh

One source considers "Bediya" to be the generic name of a number of vagrant, nomadic groups. Traditionally, a large section of the Bedia were reported to be earning a livelihood from prostitution and dancing, however, this has largely been discontinued. The Bedia worship deities like Thakur, Shiva, Parvati, Hanuman, Chamunda, Kali and Sitala and Khermata (a local deity).

Ministry Obstacles

Giving up allegiance to personal deities may be threatening.

Outreach Ideas

Pray for the Bedia people to be delivered from their fear of "Christendom" and to embrace God's blessing through his Word for their families and clans.

Scripture Focus

Has the Lord redeemed you? Then speak out! Tell others he has redeemed you from your enemies. Ps 107:2

Scripture Prayer

Pray for this people group to call out to the Lord to redeem them from sin, their main enemy.

Prayer Focus

Pray the few followers of Jesus among the Bedia will have pastors and teachers to help them grow to become faithful disciples. Pray they will be taught accurately and well. Pray the Bedia will make schooling a priority for their children, and will be able to improve their standard of living.
