John 7:37b-38, NIV
Jesus stood up and cried out, “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me as the Scripture has said, ’Out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.’”

Pray that the Bais Rajput of India would be thirsty for God’s forgiveness and come to the Lord Jesus for living water.

Hindu Bais Rajputs

by DK

Imagine a community noted for being fierce warriors who won’t harm a snake even when it harms a member of their clan. The Bais Rajput people of India have a reverence for snakes; in fact they use the image of a cobra as their symbol.
The name, Bais Rajput means “occupiers of the soil.” They own much land and have others work their land. A Rajput Bais will not do manual labor themselves because of their high status. They live throughout India, but most live in two northern states. Their primary language is Hindi, though many in Kashmir speak Kashmiri.
Like other Rajputs they are descended from an ancient Hindu warrior ruling class. They are famous for being military officers and for their ability to maintain their lands and possessions. At the time of the Mughal Empire, the Bais Rajputs were outstanding cavalry officers and called, “the spears of the sultan.” Today many are involved in trade and banking. They are known to be excellent athletes especially in field hockey.
