II Cor 10:4-5, RSV
The weapons of our warfare are not worldly but have divine power to destroy strongholds. We destroy arguments and every proud obstacle to the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ.

The world, the flesh, and the devil have taken captive the thoughts of all the unreached peoples. Intercessor, by setting the Lord always before you, abiding in him, and making his thoughts your thoughts ... are you ready to pull down strongholds and take every enemy thought captive?

Pray He will do this through you among the Bodh people. Pray that this will be the time when the thoughts of the Bodh people are freed to seek and find the Lord.

Buddhist Bodh People

by WK

The three river valleys are full of boulders, and few plants grow in them. The Bodh people group gather in villages and pray to Buddha. They believe only Buddha can save them from the evil spirits that make their lives hard. They bow to idols in temples, chanting prayers to Buddha day and night.
The Bodh have lived in the high mountains of Kashmir for as long as anyone can remember. The people speak three dialects which are almost different enough to be considered separate languages.
All Bodhs are Buddhists. There are no known followers of Jesus Christ among them. Not one verse of the Bible has been translated into their dialects. There is no Bodh version of the JESUS Film. There are also no gospel radio broadcasts in the Bodh language.

Ask God to lead faithful workers to reach out to the Bodh people of Kashmir with the message of salvation. May this people group come to realize that Jesus Christ can free them from the evil spirits who torment them. Pray that the Bible and gospel recordings would be translated into their language. Pray for a disciple making movement among the Bodh people that will shake the foundations of Buddhism throughout Asia.
