The Bhabra are merchants and businessmen, and they mostly live in India's northwestern states of Punjab and Rajasthan. Jainism encourages people to forego all worldly pleasures, which is why the majority Hindu people that surround the Bhabra hold them in high regard. They believe in non-violence and most are vegetarians. Their belief in a many-sided reality means that truth is too complex to adequately communicate. As Jains, the Bhabra people don't understand that there is definite truth, and Jesus Christ is the truth who can set them free from religion and righteousness by works.
It is possible there are no Christ followers within the Jain Bhabra community.
It will take loving believers from either business or academic backgrounds to befriend the Bhabra people and take Christ to them.
"Oh come, let us sing to the LORD; let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation! Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving; let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise!" Psalm 95:1-2
Pray that many from today’s people group will sing joyfully to the Lord, the rock of their salvation!
We know of no followers of Christ among the Bhabra people. Pray this will soon change. Pray for the Holy Spirit to give Jain Bhabra people teachable and understanding hearts. Pray that a strong movement of the Holy Spirit would bring entire Bhabra families into a rich experience of God's blessing. Pray for teams of believers to do sustained, focused prayer, asking the Lord to open the hearts of Bhabra family leaders to experience a movement to Christ.
