Praying for India states of Jharkhand and Karnataka: A 365 Day Global Prayer Journey - June 28

Today we continue our trek across India. Please read about Jharkhand and Karnataka on pages 428-429.

My prayer for today: Lord Jesus, in these Indian states we've never heard of, You are still Lord. The peoples in Jharkhand and Karnataka belong to You, Lord. We pray for healthy, sustainable development in Jharkhand. We pray for provision for the farmers. Bring appropriate amounts of rain and sun on their crops so that they can have adequate provision for their families. We pray for Christians seeking to serve the tribal groups; raise up outreach for every unengaged group. We pray for sensitivity and wisdom by evangelists. Help them know how to take into account the unique approaches and needs of each group. In Karnataka, Lord, we are grieved by the depth of spiritual need. We pray for You to break down barrier to the gospel and raise up Christians who will serve in government and challenge the anti-conversion laws. We pray for Bangalore believers to realize the opportunity facing them in Bangalore. Help them realize it is their job, not outside missionaries', to reach their city. We pray for a revival in the church and unity around the common mission of reaching their city and state. We praise You for the example of the Lingayat Christians; let their work be known by other believers throughout Karnataka and be a loving and faithful witness and challenge to them. In Jesus' name, amen.
