Cham, Western of United States

Ministry Obstacles
Though some Cham people in the past were Hindu, most are now Muslim. Their social interactions are usually with other Muslims who reinforce their traditional beliefs. Muslims have no concept of a loving Heavenly Father who can direct their lives and provide them abundant life. Pray for members of the Cham communities in the US to seek and find Jesus.

Outreach Ideas
Though most of the Cham in the United States are Muslims, a small number of them adhere to some form of Christianity. Pray that the light of the Holy Spirit will shine through these few Cham believers in such a way that their Muslim neighbors will desire to have the same spiritual riches as those who follow Christ. Pray for believers to take the time to befriend and disciple people from Cham communities.

Pray for the followers of Christ
There may be a handful of Christian believers among the Cham people in the United States, but only a handful. Please pray for nearby Christians to reach out to the Cham people, as well as to other needy people groups in their area.

Pray for the entire people group
* The Cham people have adhered to religious systems in the past, but they have not experienced being children of God.
* Pray that the eyes of their hearts will be open in such a way that they desire to become part of something bigger than themselves: spiritual children in the Kingdom of God.
* Pray for a spiritual breakthrough among the Cham that will result in many following Christ in the US as well as in Southeast Asia.
* Pray for God to raise up unstoppable believers among the Cham people who will stop at nothing to have His Name praised among the Cham people.

Scripture Focus
But get up and stand on your feet; for this purpose I have appeared to you, to appoint you a minister and a witness not only to the things which you have seen, but also to the things in which I will appear to you; rescuing you from the Jewish people and from the Gentiles, to whom I am sending you, to open their eyes so that they may turn from darkness to light and from the dominion of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who have been sanctified by faith in Me. Acts 26:16-18, NASB
