Cursed be their anger, for it was fierce, and their fury, for it was cruel. I will divide them in Jacob, and scatter them in Israel!

Pray that the curse of violence and pride will be broken.

Hindu Chandel Rajput

by BK

This people group is descended from two brothers, Aalha and Udal, renowned for fierceness and bravery in battle. They are the Chandel Rajputs. They are so famous for their bravery and fierceness that in some parts of India songs are still sung of their exploits.
The Chandel Rajputs were a powerful people, and they often dominated and subdued other peoples. During the 12th century they possessed significant territory. However, they were conquered in the 13th century by the Gaharwars.
The Chandel are said to be numbered among the 36 royal races. Though the Chandel can be found in large numbers, other Rajputs call them Jats, which means that they do not consider Chandels to be part of their communities.
Located primarily in India’s northern states, the Chandel inhabit such states as Punjab, Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, and Jammu and Kashmir. They speak Hindi and observe Hinduism as their primary religion. The gospel is not known to have made any progress as of yet among the Chandel Rajputs.

Pray for spiritual sensitivity for these Rajputs, that they would know truth when they encounter Christ. Pray for materials and resources to be made available to the Chandel Rajputs, and for missionaries to take to the field. Pray that the Chandel Rajputs would soon discover their true worth in Christ.
