In Arabic, Mallik means lord. The Malik or Mallik of India are Sunni Muslims converted from Hinduism. Their main work is agriculture. As well as cultivation, some are in business and some work for the government. They are well educated. They speak, read and write in Gujarati.
Islam is a major obstacle to the gospel, because Muslims are taught at an early age that the Koran is accurate, and the Bible is not.
Muslims need to experience the mercy, compassion and love of the Lord through believers before they will give Him a chance to transform their communities. There are at least three areas in India where Mallik people are concentrated. Believers in those places can reach out to them with the love of the Lord.
"When Jesus saw what was happening, he was angry with his disciples. He said to them, “Let the children come to me. Don’t stop them! For the Kingdom of God belongs to those who are like these children. I tell you the truth, anyone who doesn’t receive the Kingdom of God like a child will never enter it.”" Mark 10:14-15
Pray that this people group humbles themselves and comes to God with child-like trust and thereby enter into His kingdom.
There are no known followers of Christ in this Muslim community, so pray for the Lord to reveal Himself to Mallik religious and family leaders. * Pray for spiritual hunger that will lead Malik leaders to find Jesus Christ. * Pray for a movement in which the Holy Spirit leads and empowers disciples to make more disciples.
