Prayer Points

  • Pray evangelical South Asians will boldly cross-cultural castes that divide the country and people of India and prevent the gospel from spreading more quickly.
  • Pray God will break down social, cultural, lingguistic, religious, and spiritual barriers that prevent South Asian Indians from becoming followers of Jesus Christ.
  • Pray Christians will come alongside evangelical South Asians to encourage them, equip them, and be their friends so that together they may spread the gospel to the least reached South Asian peoples.
