Though many Brazilian tribes are still undiscovered by the outside world, some have been in contact with the Portuguese speaking majority for a long time. Among these are the Karapoto people, who are somewhat assimilated with Brazilian society. They have their own language, which is being replaced by Brazil's trade language, Portuguese. This people group is sedentary, not nomadic like some of the other tribes of Brazil. They are farmers and herders.
In their minds, they think that another way of worship (Christianity) disconnects them from their traditions, ethnicity and society. Many have not had contact with those who put Christ's teachings into practice.
There are a few believers from this tribe, so they would be the best people to share their faith with others.
"But when they rose early on the next morning, behold, Dagon had fallen face downward on the ground before the ark of the LORD, and the head of Dagon and both his hands were lying cut off on the threshold. Only the trunk of Dagon was left to him." 1 Samuel 5:4
Pray that many from this people group will understand that their gods have failed them, but God never fails!
Pray that the Holy Spirit would fill the hearts of the few Karapoto believers with love for their unsaved friends and relatives. Pray that he would renew their faith and ignite their souls with the desire to see their people group know the one true God Who created them. Pray that the veil would drop from the spiritual eyes of the unsaved and they would recognize and joyfully accept Jesus Christ as the Savior of their souls. Pray urgently that their lives would soon be abundant and full of worship and praise for almighty God in their own, culturally distinct way. Pray for reproducing disciples among the Karapoto people.
