Badhai, Muslim of India
The Badhai trace their descent from Lord Vishwakarma, the divine architect. It is believed that Lord Vishwakarma created two groups of people, those who could work in wood were known as Badhai. They are largely engaged in carpentry. They accept cooked food from the Brahman and Rajput, but only uncooked food from the Koh, Lohar and Od.
Many misunderstandings need to be overcome. Pray the Lord will give understanding of the Gospel of Christ.
Sustained, persistent prayer is needed. Pray especially for Indian believers to build good relationships with the Badhai Muslims.
Pray for the followers of Christ
Pray for those the Lord will soon bring to Himself. Pray they will be accurately instructed in the faith.
Pray for the entire people group
Pray for the Badhai to soon learn that their Creator loves them, and that He sent His Son to die for their sins.
