Daily Topic for November 18, 2013
Intercessor, God can flatten many walls. If God has given you a burden for unreached people groups and you don’t know how to get the information on them, get a computer-savvey friend to show you how to get the information from JoshuaProject.net. Use Google Maps and Google Earth to find the locations of Satan’s strongholds. Better yet, mobilize a team of intercessors to join you.
Pray down all the walls imprisoning the Magar people. Then keep on doing this until the kingdoms of this world have become the Kingdom of our Lord Jesus Christ!
Please do not confuse Magyars and the Magars for whom we pray today. Although both are an Asian people, the Magyars live in Europe, while the Magars live in Nepal and Tibet. Other than their Asian ancestry, the two peoples have nothing else in common.
The Magars of Nepal are divided into several groups: Western, Eastern, and Southern. As a people they speak both Nepali and their own language. Taken together, these groups number some seven percent of Nepal’s population.
They practice many religions including a blend of Hinduism and Buddhism, worshipping Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva. They also practice traditional animism. Less than one percent follow Jesus, and it is unclear how much of the New Testament is available to them in their language.
These hardworking, self-sufficient, honest people make a living as craftsmen, farmers, miners, smiths, doctors, educators, civil servants, lawyers, journalists, and other occupations. Some of them are illiterate. For more see www.magar.org.
These folk need Jesus. They need to worship the Truth, not Hindu deities. They need the Bible in their heart language. They also need true religious freedom so they can put their faith in Jesus without being persecuted.Learn more at joshuaproject.net
Therefore, pray that Christ-centered fellowships will take root in Magar society. Pray for the Bible to be translated and courage for the few Magar believers to be true to their faith. Pray that the Nepali government would end restrictions on outreach.
