How to pray         

  • Some workers in India are reporting visa issues and other challenges that make it hard for some of them to remain in-country. Please pray that God would keep the door open for many witnesses of Christ to go, serve and remain in this great nation.

  • Pray for the local Indian church to keep growing in the love and knowledge of Jesus, and that the Lord would keep fanning into flame their missional heart to reach out to others within their country.

  • Pray that the many from Hindu and Muslim people groups would have visions and dreams of Jesus and will be engaged with the Good News of Jesus through local Christians as well.
