Prayer Emphasis for Sikhs

Prepare to pray: April 12-16

Every year, more than 28 million Sikhs worldwide celebrate one of their favorite festivals: Vaisakhi. This springtime tradition began nearly 400 years ago and is still celebrated today.

This year, while Sikhs are celebrating, we ask you to pray. We, your workers among South Asian peoples, ask you to pray during the week of April 12-16 that Sikhs would come to understand the truth of Jesus. We’ve provided a daily prayer guide and also other resources for you to use during this week of prayer.

It’s our hope that this information would fuel your desire to know, respect and love Sikhs in a way that opens doors to communicate the gospel. We invite you to join us in prayer for the five days surrounding the Vaisakhi festival—celebrated this year on April 13—and ask God to move through your prayers and call you into deeper engagement with Sikhs for the sake of the gospel.
