Arora (Sikh traditions) in India

Arora Sikhs have not had it easy. They've been persecuted and have had to rely on their resilience and determination. This grit has not only brought them through various obstacles, but it has also helped them rise above them. Today, the Arora are prominent figures in many important fields. One of them, Dr. Manmohan Singh, was a recent prime minister of India!

Ministry Obstacles
Though they are known for their religious tolerance, very few Aroras have actually embraced Christ as the only way to salvation. Their open-mindedness may both help and hurt efforts to reach out to them.

Outreach Ideas
Change starts from inside a community. We can encourage those among them who believe in Christ to speak out about their faith. Believers can reach out to them through the media and show them what it truly means to follow Jesus' teachings.

Scripture Focus
"Looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God."  Hebrews 12:2

Scripture Prayer
Pray that the believers in this people group keep their spiritual focus on Jesus, the author and finisher of their faith.

Prayer Focus
Pray for those among them who believe in Jesus to live lives honoring God. Pray for them to be examples for all others and help lead others to faith. Pray for them to be strong through hard times and to put their trust in Jesus. Pray that the persecution they have faced never happens again. Pray for their mental wellbeing and for all their physical and spiritual needs to be met. Pray for a movement to Christ among the Arora Sikhs this decade.
