Ministry Obstacles

Trusting Christ fully requires an act of humility, and the Rajput have been a proud people.

Outreach Ideas

Much sustained, focused prayer is needed for the Rajput.

Pray for the Followers of Christ

Pray for the followers of Christ that will soon emerge from the Rajput community of Pakistan, that they will be zealous to know and follow Christ. Pray they will rest fully on the finished work of Christ on the cross, and will look to his Spirit for power to live this life.

Pray for the Entire People Group

Pray the Rajput community will increasingly be drawn to the person of Isa Christ as they read the Koran, and will hunger to find out more about this man.
