Biswas is both a surname and a title in Bangladesh, and the title is very flattering. It means "reliable" "trustworthy" or "faith." This honorable title was given to them by Muslim rulers in a time that pre-dates British rule. Many of them were administrators at that time. Today there is a long list of famous and prominent people in Bangladesh with the surname of Biswas.
Their pride in their past can easily keep many from seeing that they need a savior, especially since Islam, their main religion in Bangladesh, does not point to a savior.
It will take much prayer before the Biswas community is ready to accept that they need a sinless savior. Before anyone attempts to reach out to them, they should have a strong prayer covering.
Pray for the Lord to orchestrate efforts to reach Biswas families.
Pray for the Holy Spirit to raise up Biswas family leaders who will open the door to believers, taking Christ to their families and clans.
Pray for a massive movement to Christ among the Biswas people that will affect other communities in Bangladesh.
Pray for the Lord to bring Biswas families to Himself by blessing them abundantly.
