Ghirath (Hindu traditions) in India

Profile Text
Submit Profile Text:

Summary
The name Ghirath refers to the traditional occupation of agriculture and animal husbandry, for which this community is well known. Marriage rituals are performed by a Brahmin according to Vedic rites, and the bride and groom circle the sacred fire or a pomegranate or fig tree.

Ministry Obstacles
The Ghirath community speaks a number of languages, as most castes do. Separate church planting projects may be needed for each language group.

Outreach Ideas
Workers are needed to minister to these people using oral means as well as with the written Word.

Pray for the followers of Christ
Pray for the followers of Christ that the Lord will soon bring forth from the Ghirath community, that they will understand clearly how to know and follow Christ, and be faithful in his service.

Pray for the entire people group
Pray the Ghirath community will be able to care properly for their families, for peace with their neighbors, and for good schools for their children.

Scripture Focus
"All nations you have made will come and worship before you, O Lord; they will bring glory to your name." Psalm 86:9
