Prayagraj is a Buddhist and Hindu pilgrimage site in the Uttar Pradesh state in northern India. Prayagraj stands at the confluence of the Ganges and Yamuna rivers and is a holy city comparable in fame to Varanasi and Haridwar. Millions of religious devotees visit the city yearly.
The ruling Hindu nationalist political party, objecting to “Allahabad,” changed the city’s name in 2018. After all, that name was coined by a Muslim ruler 435 years ago.
India’s first Prime Minister, Jawaharlal Nehru, was born in Prayagraj.
“In another area, a pregnant woman had a lot of complications, and her doctor said, ‘It’s possible she won’t survive.’ Two of our leaders prayed for her daily as the Lord led them.”
“On the second day, while they went to the hospital to pray, they fell off their scooter and had scrapes and bruises. They said to each other, ‘This is bad, but let’s go and pray first, then we can come back and get some first aid.’ When they finished praying and left, they found no more bruises! They were completely healed!”
“For four days, they regularly prayed for the woman, then said, ‘Tomorrow morning, everything will be okay.’ And that’s exactly what happened; everything was okay. The woman was healed and had a normal delivery, which opened a door for the good news.”
