Summary
The name Rajput is derived from the Sanskrit word rajputra, meaning son of a ruler. The Rajputra constitutes a class of nobility. The Rajput clans emerged as a dominant community in north and western India in the colonial period. The economic data suggests that the majority of Rajput are landowners. A large number of communities have migrated to their present habitat, and this has made them one of the most mobile groups in India.

Ministry Obstacles
Fear that Christianity aims to turn individuals from their families, communities and traditions hinders Rajput families and communities from considering the Gospel.

Outreach Ideas
Sustained, focused prayer is needed to open the hearts of Rajput families to experiencing God's blessing through a movement of family-based discovery Bible studies.

Pray for the followers of Christ
Pray for the few Rajput believers to be effective at engaging their families and communities in discussing Bible stories and experiencing God's blessing.

Pray for the entire people group
Pray that a strong movement to Jesus will bring whole Rajput families and communities into a rich experience of God's blessings.
