In the eighth century, Sindhis became part of an Islamic Empire, enabling Arabs to enter India. Sindhi people have Persian links that have influenced them. They have their roots in Pakistan's Sindh Province.
There are a number of Sindhi subgroups. Among them are the Samon Sindhis who are evenly divided between Pakistan's Sindh Province and Gujarat, India.
The Samon Sindhi work in livestock production. Some work in agriculture. Samon Sindhis are not well educated, so they will need the gospel in oral form. They are not vegetarians who eat buffalo and camel meat.
They have arranged marriages with their cousins. They allow for re-marriage. When the father dies sons and daughters both inherit the property.
They are Sunni Muslims who have also been influenced by Sufism. There are Sufi shrines in Sindhi communities.
The Samon Sindhi people need to put their hope in the King of kings, realizing that he is the one who gives them worth and dignity.
Pray that God will give the Samon Sindhi dreams and visions leading them to Jesus Christ.
Pray for Christian resources to influence their spiritual lives.
Pray for Sindhi disciples to make other disciples within the Samon community.
Pray for spiritual hunger and discernment that will drive them into the loving arms of Jesus.
Scripture Prayers for the Sindhi Samon in India.
