Mahratta of India

Viewing 8/28/2017

Mahratta of India

The main hero of the Mahratta is Shivaji. The main objective of a middle class Marathi family is a secure future for themselves and their children, so financial savings are main concerns. The cow is considered a sacred animal and is believed to have 330 million gods inside her stomach.

Ministry Obstacles

They may have little concept of a personal, forgiving God.

Outreach Ideas

Scriptural stories told in the languages of the Mahratta may have great impact in helping them understand.

Pray for the followers of Christ

There are few if any Christian believers within this large community, but pray for those that will soon emerge. Pray the Lord will provide skilled pastors and teachers for them.

Pray for the entire people group

Pray for the Mahratta community to desire to know and follow the creator God, instead of honoring the cow, part of the creation. Pray for light instead of darkness.
