Every people group has a story. When we are gathered around God's throne in heaven, we'll get to hear each and every one of those stories. But for now, the Muslim Behara living in Bangladesh have an unknown story. There is almost no information about this mysterious people group.
We do know that the Behara live in rural areas and are followers of Islam. Though they are not part of the Hindu caste system, they have low status. Thus they are under bondage both to false religion and the false belief that they have little worth in the eyes of God or man.
The Bible is available in their language in audio and online formats, so they can encounter and respond to God's Word. There is always a need for those who will use the local culture's music and drama forms to present the life of Christ.
"And the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together, for the mouth of the Lord has spoken." Isaiah 40:5
Pray that members of this people group will soon see the glory of the Lord and respond to it.
Ask the Lord to write his story of the Behara people and that they would embrace it and make it their story as well. Pray for them to realize that they were created to worship him, and for them to joyfully do so. Pray for the Holy Spirit to sweep through this people group, drawing them into his Kingdom, family by family.
