Bhojpuri of South Asia

(bohj-POOR-ee) – Holi is the “Festival of Colors” and is the Hindu celebration of the beginning of spring. It is also a celebration of the defeat of good over evil. During this celebration, Hindus worship Vishnu, whom they believe is the god who creates, protects, and transforms the universe. As Hindus all over India celebrate this holiday on March 25 with happiness, pray that their hearts will be heavy with the weight of emptiness in their hearts. Pray that followers of Jesus will not ignore this religious day, but instead use it as an opportunity to tell about the one true God who ultimately defeated evil through His perfect sacrifice. Pray that this year, many Hindus will allow Jesus to transform their lives for eternity!
