Devadasi of India

Ministry Obstacles
There are people who greatly profit by this practice that ruins many lives, and they will do whatever they can to keep this lucrative trade in place. It is highly secretive, since most people in India, including most Hindus, disapprove of temple prostitution.

Outreach Ideas
There are ministries that help women from the Devadasi caste learn new trades while teaching them the ways of Christ. In some cases it might be necessary for women to do what 19th century missionary Amy Carmichael did and use clever means to rescue Devadasis from the temples.

Pray for the followers of Christ
Pray that these women will be able to overcome the trauma, bitterness, hatred, and fear that they have had to deal with in their past life. Pray that many will live victorious lives in Christ that will draw others to Him.

Pray for the entire people group
* Pray for the Holy Spirit to empower and embolden Mission to India and other outreaches to the Devadasis.
* Pray that more and more Devadasi women will hear the good news of Jesus and be free and healed to serve Him.
