31 Days of Prayer for the least reached in Africa

Africa was once referred to as the “dark” continent. Through prayer God is in the process of turning this around. It is becoming a continent of LIGHT! More people are coming to Christ in Africa than any other continent with the result that more workers are being sent out than ever before! However, Africa and her people still have many challenges they needs to face - animism, violence, and corruption just to name a few. According to the Joshua project there still remain 990 people groups in Africa that have not heard the gospel.

We invite you to join us, and many Christians throughout Zimbabwe and indeed the rest of the world, as we join God in what He is doing in the nations! Every day in the month of May, we will be praying, focusing on a different people groups from Africa as we cry out to the Lord to save nations of Africa. But prayer is not our end goal, we know that when we enter into conversation with God and cry out for a nation, God can also use to go and bring the good news. Will you answer the call if God chooses you.

The Gujarati Indians: Diaspora in Africa

The Gujarati Indians are a complex people group, speaking various dialects and having many cultural distinctions.

Originating in India, today there are significant Gujarati communities in 27 nations. In Africa the largest populations of Gujarati Indians can be found in Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, and South Africa.

RELIGION

Despite being scattered around the world, most Gujarat retain their strong religious and cultural ties. The majority of the Gujarati are Hindus. Hindus worship many gods, some of which are animals. Cows are sacred, but they also revere monkeys, snakes, and other animals. They teach reincarnation (a continual cycle of death and rebirth).

However, approximately 30% have strong Muslim ties. The Gujarati Muslims often despise the Hindus. The Muslims look down upon their worship of millions of gods and are not hesitant to express the prejudices they feel.

WHAT ARE THEIR NEEDS?

In many countries where there are Gujarati communities, there are no missionary agencies targeting this people group. As a minority people group in Africa they are pushed to the side and forgotten about simply because they have immigrated from another place.

PRAYER POINTS:

  • Pray that God will give churches wisdom, favour, and strategies for reaching the Gujarati.
  • Ask the Holy Spirit to soften the hearts of the Gujarati towards Christians so that they will be receptive to the Gospel.
