Bangladesh is a country in South Asia located in the delta of the Padma and Jamuna rivers. Bangladesh, which means the "Land of the Bengals", is the most densely populated country globally. Before its separation from India, the area was housed in the state of West Bengal.
However, due to ongoing conflict between Hindus and Muslims, Bangladesh was awarded independence in 1971. Hence, the vast majority of the population is Bengali Muslim, the largest frontier people group in the world.
In addition to great Gospel poverty in the nation, Bangladesh also houses many Muslim Rohingyas fleeing state-sponsored genocide in neighboring Myanmar. This influx, coupled with 4.8 million orphans roaming the country's railways, has created an immense strain on the central government. Dhaka, the capital city, is one of the world's largest metropolises and home to many of these abandoned children.
Pray for the spread of the Gospel and for multiplying house churches among the Bengali Muslim, Bengali Hindu, Bihari Muslim, Rajbansi Hindu, and Sylhet Muslim people.
Pray for the launch of strategic centers for church planting. These centers will rescue street kids, empower women, care for the poor, and create inroads for disciple-making.
Pray for the advancement of God's Kingdom throughout the 39 languages of this city.
Pray for a mighty movement of prayer to be birthed in Dhaka that multiplies throughout the country.
Pray for a resurrection of God's divine purpose for this city.
