The Brahmin are a priestly class, described as having originated from the face of Prajapati (Viratpurusha). A Brahmin concerns himself with the spiritual guidance of the people and is consulted for reading the meaning of Scripture. On auspicious dates and events he officiates at ceremonial functions. They are considered custodians and transmitters of sacred traditions. As custodians of Brahminical Hinduism, the Brahmin worship deities on a large scale.
Brahmin pride and the perception that Christianity is only for outcast "untouchables," are serious obstacles to Brahmin families and communities accepting God's blessing for families through Jesus. They also believe that missionaries pay people to become converts to win a cultural and political war with Hinduism.
Pray for laborers to have wisdom in applying the pattern Jesus gave in Matthew 10:7-14 and Luke 10:5-11, leading to blessing among Brahmin households.
"And he brought him outside and said, Look toward heaven, and number the stars, if you are able to number them. Then he said to him, So shall your offspring be. And he believed the LORD, and he counted it to him as righteousness." Genesis 15:5-6
Pray that members of today’s people group will understand that they can become part of God’s holy family and experience His goodness.
Pray for the few Brahmin Jesus-followers to be effective in demonstrating how Jesus blesses and heals families and communities. Pray for Brahmin families and communities to discover and embrace the free gift of life found by trusting in Christ and his finished work.
