For the Mission:

  • That the Lord of the Harvest would raise up missionaries to work among the Banjara, so many of whom are hungry to hear the Gospel and believe in Christ Jesus as Lord and Savior
  • That the Bible in the Banjara language would be circulated far and wide, impacting eternally those who hear from It
  • That the Banjara – regarded as unreached – would become a reached people group, firmly grounded in the Scriptures, sending their own people to become missionaries beyond their people group
  • That the Banjara Christians would be bold to share the Gospel and would be met, not with adversity, but with yearning to know and love the one true God
