Hyderabad is the largest and most populous city in Telangana state. With 43% of the city's inhabitants being Muslim, Hyderabad is an important city for Islam and is home to many prominent mosques. India, occupying the greater part of South Asia, is the second-most populous country after China.
India's government is a constitutional republic representing a highly diverse population with thousands of ethnic groups, hundreds of languages, and a complex caste system. The nation has a convoluted social and cultural history, featuring a rich intellectual life in the sciences, arts, and religious tradition. After gaining independence from the British in 1947, India split from the predominantly Muslim regions of present-day Pakistan and Bangladesh.
Despite earnest attempts to unify the country, tensions between rival ethnic groups and religious sects, rich and poor, have further divided the nation. Burdening the country further, India has more abandoned children than any nation, with over 30 million orphans wandering bustling streets and railway stations. This cultural dynamism creates immense challenges for the central government but an enormous opportunity for the church of India to step into the harvest fields moved with compassion and great expectation.
Pray for the advancement of God's Kingdom throughout the many languages of this city.
Pray for the launch of a community center which will be focused on reaching the "street kids" of the city as well as taking care of women and the poor. Through this effort house churches will be planted rapidly and the city will be won for Jesus. Pray for wisdom, courage, and supernatural protection for the leaders of the community center in the city.
Pray for followers of Jesus to walk in the power of the Spirit.
Pray for a resurrection of God's divine purpose for this city.
