Mappila Muslims of India

(MOP-lah) – The Mappila are a Muslim people group numbering more than 10 million in the southern state of Kerala, India. Of the small number of born-again, evangelical believers in Kerala, many are scared or unwilling to share the gospel with their Muslim neighbors. Please pray that the Lord will give His followers a spirit of confidence to be bold witnesses for His glory to be made known among the Mappila people. Pray for pastors in Kerala to model and encourage their members also to model the love of Christ by inviting all types of seekers to witness what a Christ follower’s home and life looks like. Psalm 150:6 (ESV) says: “Let everything that has breath praise the LORD!” Pray that many Mappila will come to know and praise Him.
