Introduction

The name Rajput is derived from the Sanskrit word rajputra, meaning son of a ruler. The Rajputra constitutes a class of nobility. The Rajput clans emerged as a dominant community in north and western India in the colonial period. The economic data suggests that the majority of Rajput are landowners. A large number of communities have migrated to their present habitat and this has made them one of the most mobile groups.


Ministry Obstacles

High caste communities find it especially difficult to humble themselves enough to accept God's free gift.


Outreach Ideas

Sustained prayer and dedicated workers are needed.


Pray for the Followers of Christ

Pray for the small group of Christian believers among the Hindu Rajput, that they will be united in love around the truth of Scripture. Pray they live a life of love, just as Christ loved them and gave himself up for them.


Pray for the Entire People Group

Pray for the Rajput community to increasingly grow in awareness of Jesus, his life and his sacrifice for them. Pray the Lord will give them a hunger to know, then satisfy that hunger.
