We are thrilled that God is creating new opportunities for diverse peoples to taste, see, and hear of Christ’s love!

Communities where He is least known

Tibetan Buddhists

With 100,000 of the world’s 6.2 million Tibetans, India is home to the largest portion of the Tibetan diaspora outside of China. India has had a friendly stance to Tibetans since the Dalai Lama left China in 1959. Known as the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA), the Tibetan government-in-exile is based in Dharamsala in Himachal Pradesh, India.

Significant numbers of Tibetans also live in Delhi, Dehradun and Mussoorie. Thousands of children make the dangerous mountainous journey from Tibet into India each year to be cared for in orphanages where they will have the chance to preserve Tibetan language and culture. Pray that many Tibetans will come to embrace a destiny in Christ as God raises up more Indian and expatriate friends to show them his love and truth.

Prayers

1

Pray for SIM India to be a joyous community, led and empowered by the Spirit.

2

Pray for our various Indian partners in their leadership training initiatives, so that the growing North Indian Church is strengthened with solid foundations for future witness.

3

Pray for strength, perseverance, and boldness of vision for the Indian Church in an increasingly difficult political environment.

4

Pray for God to call forth his children from among all the beautiful and culturally diverse peoples of North India.

5

Pray for SIM India as we consider two completely new ministry initiatives – to Tibetans living in India, and to those in a western Indian state. Please pray for wisdom to discern God’s leading, for provision of personnel, and for strategic partnerships to take us forward.

6

Pray for more partnership opportunities to bless children and youth.

7

Pray for growth and change in us and our Indian brothers and sisters as we journey together.

8

Pray for wisdom and provision for our partners reaching out sacrificially to the poor and marginalised, and that communities and individuals would come to know the transforming love of Christ through these initiatives.

9

Pray for more people to join in loving our Muslim neighbours. India contains the second largest number of Muslims in the world.
