Luke 15:10, NET
In the same way, I tell you, there is joy in the presence of God’s angels over one sinner who repents.

Pray that soon there will be repentance among the Dhimar people that will bring joy and celebration in heaven.

Dhimar People

by EC

At that time the Lord set apart the tribe of Levi to carry the ark of the covenant of the Lord, to stand before the Lord to minister and to pronounce blessings in his name, as they still do today. Deuteronomy 10:8, NIV.
The Dhimar live mainly in the central states of India. They speak Hindi and are Hindus who worship the gods Shiva, Ganesh, Hanuman, and Lakshmi.
The Dhimar earn their living with their hands in a diversity of roles ranging from weaving rope and sharpening grindstones, to selling rice and fish.
This spring, the Dhimar will join the Hindu community in Holi, a festival of colors, or “festival of love.” Holi is a celebration of the end of winter and the triumph of good over evil. It is a joyful event that unites people from all backgrounds and castes, and many participate by throwing colored waters and powders at both friends and strangers. Though the heart of Holi is play, reconciliation, love, and thanksgiving, it is ultimately linked to the worship of false gods.

Pray that the Dhimar, like the Levites, would be set apart to joyously minister to the Lord. Pray that they would carry the glory of the Lord on their shoulders, and that they would live liberated from the heaviness of this world. Pray that the Dhimar would perceive Jesus as the source for everlasting joy.
