People of the Lower Plains of Karnataka, India

(car-NAH-tuh-kuh) – Please pray for Nallini, a local harvest worker. Every week, she and two other young women get together to disciple other believers. However, the other two will be moving away within the next three months. Nallini has some women her age to whom she is teaching the Bible and how to serve God, but she doesn’t feel like they know how to truly listen to what’s on her heart or push her to serve the Lord. After these two young women leave, she’s concerned that she won’t have any women her age with whom she can entrust her struggles to in confidence and who will encourage her with God’s Word. Pray that the Lord will send Nallini women in her city who love Jesus more than this world and who will help her to do the same, reliable friends who will stick closer than a brother. “A man of many companions may come to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother” (Proverbs 18:24 ESV).
