The Rajputs

Source:  Asia Harvest      Download

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 few Rajput believers to be effective at engaging their families and communities in discussing Bible stories and experiencing God’s blessing.


Pray for the Entire People Group

Pray for a movement to Jesus to multiply among Rajput families and communities.
