Deuteronomy 8:18
But remember the Lord your God, for it is he who gives you the ability to produce wealth, and so confirms his covenant, which he swore to your forefathers, as it is today.

The Saini Rajputs have managed to gain wealth no matter what they have done. Their ancestors were expert soldiers who collected much loot. Those who lived in more recent centuries have made much money through their large land holdings. Even today, they manage to prosper no matter what they do. The one thing that is holding them back is their lack of knowledge of the One who gave them the ability to produce wealth.

Pray for the Lord to raise up His chosen messengers to introduce the Saini Rajputs to the One who has blessed them with wealth for hundreds of years.

Saini Rajputs In India

by MB

One hundred years ago, Avtar knew two things would never change: that he was Hindu and he was to be a great warrior. He was a Saini man from the Rajput community, which meant that he, like his ancestors before him, would be a trained soldier. Avtar could not have foreseen the day only three generations later, that his great-grandson would know that being a Saini Rajput meant two things: that he was Hindu and he was to take up farming his family’s vast land holdings. Like the majority of Rajput peoples, Sainis traded their swords for plowshares during the centuries of Muslim rule and continued farming through the British Colonial Era.

Everything about these people changed since India’s independence. Instead of being in the military or owning land, the Sainis have now become active in every sector of India’s public life. For a Saini Rajput, there are two things that they believe will never change: their people are Hindu and they can do anything they want to with their future. Since their way of life has changed so much over the centuries, we know the Saini Rajputs can change again! The Sainis are now accustomed to change for the better among their people, yet are still 100 percent Hindu. Their high position gives them the opportunity to influence other Hindu communities with the good news.

Pray that God’s people will bring His message to them, and that they, in turn, will influence other Hindu communities for Christ.
