Mahratta of India

 Another mega people with few if any believers!

Mahratta in India

The main hero of the Mahratta is Shivaji. The main objective of a middle class Marathi family is a secure future for themselves and their children, so financial savings are main concerns. The cow is considered a sacred animal and is believed to have 330 million gods inside her stomach.

Ministry Obstacles
They may have little concept of a personal, forgiving God.

Outreach Ideas
Scriptural stories told in the languages of the Mahratta may have great impact in helping them understand.

Pray for the followers of Christ
There are few if any Christian believers within this large community, but pray for those that will soon emerge. Pray the Lord will provide skilled pastors and teachers for them.

Pray for the entire people group
Pray for the Mahratta community to desire to know and follow the creator God, instead of honoring the cow, part of the creation. Pray for light instead of darkness.

Scripture Focus
“He will have compassion on the poor and needy, And the lives of the needy He will save.” Psalm 72:13
