Nagpur India

30-Days of Prayer for the Muslim World
Ramadan 2008 / 1429: September 01 - September 30

India: Nagpur, the centre of India

For Monday 22 September, Ramadan 2008. "Loving Muslims Through Prayer"

The central Indian city of Nagpur (whose name means ‘City of Snakes’) has a population of over three million people. Nagpur lies on major north-south and east-west transportation routes. The city is at the geographic centre of India. It is a commonly held misconception in the region that followers of Jesus bribe downtrodden Muslims and Hindus to accept Christ in return for material benefit or social advantage. Therefore actions by local believers are often misunderstood. Those who do come to Christ are often pressured into returning to Islam by various social, economic, emotional and even physical pressures. [Full Text]

Prayer Starters:

  • Pray for local believers to enter into their role as those who are part of God’s plan to bless all nations, tribes and tongues (Gen. 22:18 and Galatians 3:16,29).
  • Pray for the effective distribution of these new translations of the Bible.
  • Pray for the local believers who face real persecution due to the prejudices and misunderstandings.
  • Pray for believers to be trained in how to proclaim the Messiah with wisdom and understanding in the Muslim community.
