Koiri (Hindu traditions) in India

Profile Text
Submit Profile Text:

Summary
The Koiri believe they are the descendents of Kush, one of the twin sons of lord Rama. They receive the services of a Brahmin priest, who officiates over their life-cycle rituals and religious ceremonies. The majority of the Koiri are engaged in their traditional occupation of agriculture.

Ministry Obstacles
Nominal Christians, whether in India or in the West, may have negatively influenced the Koiri's perception of what it means to be a follower of Christ.

Outreach Ideas
Sustained, focused prayer is needed to open the eyes of the Koiri community to their need and opportunity to know and follow Jesus Christ.

Pray for the followers of Christ
Pray for the Christian believers among the Koiri community, that they will have a strong and faithful testimony for the Lord, and will honor him with their lives.

Pray for the entire people group
Pray the Koiri community will increasingly hunger to know forgiveness for their sins and the new life offered through faith in Jesus Christ.

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