Colossians 1:13-14
For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.

Each day you, the GPD intercessors, are praying for this to happen among the given people group. Without Christ, entire people groups are controlled by the dominion of darkness, and the results are tragic. You can see from today’s reading that the Southwestern Huishui Miaos are under the spiritual bondage of various spirits. We need to pray that they will be brought into the kingdom of the redeemer, the Son of God.

Pray that the Huishui peoples will soon be brought from the dominion of darkness to the light of Christ, so that they can be forgiven for their sins. Pray that they will be released from sexual impurity.

Southwestern Huishui Miao (hway-shway-meow)

Researchers have found that the Southwestern Huishui Miao people are animistic, polytheistic, worship their ancestors, and call on shamans to help them with their problems.

They have also learned that sexual immorality is commonplace among this people group. Youth are permitted to experiment with multiple partners, and many marriages are considered “free.” Spouses participate in sexual relations outside of marriage. Incest is also rampant.
The reasons for this type of behavior are twofold: 1) this is their culture and tradition, 2) most of them have never even heard about the true and living God that offers them a much better way to live.

There are currently no known followers of Christ in this people group. Only four percent of the more than 56,000 Huishui Miao have even been exposed to the truth of Jesus Christ, and there are no ministries or mission organizations trying to work with them.

Pray for this truly unreached people group to be transformed by the good news that Jesus Christ died and rose from the dead in order to set them free from bondage to demonic powers and sin. Ask the Lord to alert mission organizations of this urgent need. Pray for the JESUS Film and gospel recordings to be made widely available to them so that the Huishui Miao people can learn that there is a God who truly loves them.
