Praying for India A 365 Day Global Prayer Journey - June 22

Today we conclude our general prayers for India. Please review pages 409-417.

Tomorrow we'll begin focusing on India's states. As you read God may stir your heart for a particular area or people group. Following my prayer for today, I've listed a few good resources to help you go more in-depth if you feel God awakening your heart in a special way to pray, give, or go to one of these unreached areas of India.

My prayer for today: Lord Jesus, You are the God of India. From the believers who openly worship You, to those who are hidden behind their cultural traditions, to those who seek You without yet knowing Your name, to those who have no idea of their need for You - You are Lord. India is Yours, Lord. The enemy has captured it and held it in bondage for too long. We pray today for You to release India from bondage into the truth of Your marvelous light. We pray against the spiritual forces of darkness that seek to hold India in a web of lies and a stronghold of poverty and deception. We pray for You to fulfill the harvest in India. Send people to translate Your word, people to support the Indian church, people to go to the unreached areas. Give outside agencies wisdom on working with the Indian church, and believers guidance on giving in ways that are sustainable for the churches and do not further dependency. Bring Indians who are abroad studying or working to faith in Jesus and make them strong missionaries for You. We love You Lord Jesus. Do a mighty work in India we pray, in Jesus' name, amen.
