People of the Lower Plains of Karnataka, India

(car-NAH-tuh-kuh) – A brother in southern Karnataka is starting cottage prayer meetings in different homes as an entry into villages. Pray for open doors in these areas and a place for them to meet. Ask the Father to prepare the hearts of unbelievers to be receptive to the gospel. Pray that He will break strongholds in their lives and that they will hear the gospel, repent of their sins, and turn to Jesus. One cottage prayer meeting that was started last year has seen salvations. Please pray that the believers will stay strong in their faith. A woman named Hashi is leading a daily prayer meeting with this group. Ask that she will have wisdom and knowledge and that she will walk in His Spirit as she leads this group. Pray that the believers will be bold to go and share with their families, their neighbors, and the people they pass as they live their lives. “And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved” (Acts 2:47 ESV).
