The earliest textual references to this community occur around the first century BC or first century AD. The recorded evidence of the Kayastha as a caste appeared for the first time during the ninth century AD. The Kayastha claim that Chitragupta, the registrar of Yama, the god of death, is their legendary ancestor. They hold the view that Chitragupta was created by Brahma, and was entrusted to record all the good and evil actions of all beings.
The Kayastha may see Jesus as just one more god of many.
Pray for the Lord to raise up a strong disciple making movement to saturate the hearts and minds of this people group.
I bow before your holy Temple as I worship. I praise your name for your unfailing love and faithfulness; for your promises are backed by all the honor of your name. Ps 138:2
Pray that many from this people group will delight in His promises, and seek His unfailing love.
Pray for the few Christian believers among the Kayastha community, that they will become mature in the faith, grounded on the truth of Scripture, filled with the Holy Spirit. Pray for the Kayastha community to increasingly hunger for eternal life found in Christ, his person and his work on the cross.
