The Saluma are a First Nations people in the state of Mato Grosso of western Brazil.
The Saluma people are fighting to save their homeland from loggers. A Catholic priest spoke up on their behalf, and he was murdered. With such a small population, they do not stand much of a chance of retaining their land.
Though there is some Roman Catholic influence among the Saluma, they are basically shamanistic. They depend on their traditional gods rather than the God of Creation.
The Saluma people need to adapt to a changing world. They will eventually need education in new areas. This will take them out of their comfort zone.
Pray for the Lord to provide protection and mercy for the Saluma people of Brazil.
Pray for members of the Saluma tribe who love the Lord to teach Christ to others.
Pray for the Holy Spirit to move among the Saluma people this decade, providing them with a hope and a purpose.
