Proverbs 23:7a, KJV
For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he.

Intercessor, as God’s Spirit moves you to open your mouth and pray for the Brokpa people, you will intercede using his words from his word, and you will clear the way for the harvesters you are praying for!

The Lord of the Angel Armies, help us to take every thought captive as your harvesters to bring Brokpa people your word!

Buddhist Brokpa People

by WK

It is common for people to bring flowers to funerals, but we usually don’t wear them at such solemn events. Among the Brokpa people, both men and women wear floral print clothes to funerals. The women even wear flowers in their hair.
Everyone remains silent until a relative of the deceased lights the funeral pyre. Then a Buddhist priest begins to chant. Slowly the flames consume the body. The Brokpa believe that the burning of the body frees the soul to be reborn in a new body.
The Brokpa live in Jammu and Kashmir near the border with Pakistan. They speak a language similar to several spoken in Pakistan. But unlike their kinsmen, the Brokpa are Buddhists, not Muslims. There are few, if any, followers of Jesus Christ among the Brokpa. There are 200 Christian believers among the neighboring Ladakhi people group.

Pray that Ladakhi believers will be led by God to reach out to their Brokpa neighbors with the message of salvation. Ask God to open the spiritual eyes of the Brokpa. May they come to see that Jesus Christ is the way, the truth, and the light. Pray for a disciple making movement among the Brokpa people that will spread throughout Jammu and Kashmir.
