Acts 2:36-38, NET
Therefore let all the house of Israel know beyond a doubt that God has made this Jesus whom you crucified both Lord and Christ.” Now when they heard this, they were acutely distressed and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, “What should we do, brothers?” Peter said to them, “Repent, and each one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.

Pray that distress will soon give way to spiritual joy as Indians in Rwanda hear that the crucified and resurrected Lord can forgive them.

Later Pastor Habimama shared with his congregation. “Kalyan is coming closer to accepting Jesus. However, his Hindu religion is deep. He expressed how much he and so many Indians here in Rwanda are grateful for the outreach and friendship that Christian believers have given them. We need to be diligent in praying, and we need to let others know how to pray for our outreach to our Hindu friends.” He then led them in prayer. Let’s pray with our Rwandan brethren.

Pray for the Indian community living in Rwanda to be open towards Christian outreach attempts and to be willing to be challenged in their spiritual beliefs. Pray for the believers among the South Asian community to be firmly rooted in God’s Word and to be bold in contending for the gospel among their community. Pray for the church in Rwanda to be awakened regarding mission opportunities both inside and outside the country, especially our Christian young people studying in India. Pray that the passion and commitment of Rwandan believers for reaching South Asians will increase, and that they will encourage one another in this regard.
