Introduction / History

The Rajput Bisen clan is found in northern India, mainly in the state of Uttar Pradesh. They are a powerful and an ancient Rajput clan and have several kingdoms in the northern plains of India. They are a brave, generous land-owning people.


What Are Their Lives Like?

Many Rajput Bisen people are still in India’s armed forces. Some are in the tourism business, renovating old palaces and forts into hotels. Poverty is an issue for some.


What Are Their Beliefs?

Rajput Bisen people are completely Hindu in their religion. Hinduism is a catch-all phrase for the local religions of South Asia, so it is very diverse. At the popular level, Hindus worship and serve the gods of the Hindu pantheon. They visit Hindu temples and offer prayers, food, flowers, and incense to their gods in hopes of gaining protection and benefits. They do not have a person or familial relationship with their gods like Christians or Jews.


What Are Their Needs?

Like all Rajput peoples, the Bisen community needs to have a life-long encounter with Jesus Christ, the only one who can offer them life to the full.


Prayer Points

* Scripture Prayers for the Rajput Bisen (Hindu traditions) in India.

Pray for a spiritual hunger that will give Rajput Bisen people a willingness to accept the eternal blessings of Jesus Christ.
Pray for a disciple making movement that will bless these people this decade.
Pray for the Lord to thrust out workers to these people for whom Christ laid down His life.
