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.
They may have little concept of a personal, forgiving God.
Scriptural stories told in the languages of the Mahratta may have great impact in helping them understand.
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 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.
"He will have compassion on the poor and needy, And the lives of the needy He will save." Psalm 72:13
