Julaha in India

Julaha (aka, Julah) means, "a ball of thread" because they have traditionally been weavers who were noted for weaving intricate designs and bold colors. Julaha people of India live in the Hindi speaking states of Uttar Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Haryana, Jammu, and Delhi. Scripture resources are available in the Hindi language spoken by Julaha people. Julaha can be Hindus, Sikhs or animists who worship their ancestors. They believe in witchcraft and look to sorcerers to cure diseases.

Ministry Obstacles
Anti-conversion laws are enforced in Chhattisgarh and Himachal Pradesh threatening those who could potentially follow Christ and causing fear and unbelief in their minds and emotions. Julaha people are deceived by the spirits they serve, and do not see their need for the Savior; worshiping many gods will never fill their spiritual need.

Outreach Ideas
Since movements to Christ are characterized by extraordinary prayer, ask Almighty God that His people continually increase in intimacy and sensitivity to Him, and pray without ceasing for the Julaha people.

Pray for the followers of Christ
There are no known followers of Christ among Julaha people in India, so pray that this soon changes.

Pray for the entire people group
* Pray that God will raise up many prayer teams to adopt Julaha families and communities, praying until the blessing of knowing Jesus is spreading rapidly from family to family. * Pray for a spiritual hunger among the Julaha people that will lead them to the only one who can give them abundant life.

Scripture Focus
"A woman named Lydia, from the city of Thyatira, a seller of purple fabrics, a worshiper of God, was listening; [a]and the Lord opened her heart to respond to the things spoken by Paul." Acts 16:14
