Jadhav Mahrattas are a forward caste, which means they have high status in this Hindu culture. The name Mahratha comes from the word "invincible." They have a proud military history, and they have had good status for many centuries. They work mainly in agriculture and selling crops while some work in business, government service, some as laborers. They have a council of elders to look after their interests.

Ministry Obstacles

High status, especially when it comes from a religious system, can be a barrier to people humbly looking to Jesus for spiritual answers.

Outreach Ideas

The Jadhav Mahrattas often live in Mumbai, a huge city where there are many believers. These believers can make a special effort to reach this people group and disciple them in His ways.

Pray for the Followers of Christ

Pray for Holy Spirit anointed believers from the Jadhav Mahrattas to change their society from within.

Pray for the Entire People Group

Pray for spiritual hunger among this people group.
Pray for a "Book of Acts" type of movement to Christ among the Jadhav Mahrattas that will leave them thankful and devoted to the Lord of Heaven.
Pray for a movement in which the Holy Spirit leads and empowers disciples to make more disciples.
