The Panbada people have low status in the Hindu world.
The Palbada community lives on the coastal regions of southern India as well as some inland regions.
The Panbada people live in a world of caste conflict and vindictive spirits.
The Pambada people practice Hinduism, blended with traditional religion based on the appeasement and worship of spirits. They differentiate between gods (Hinduism) and the local spirits. The gods rule the entire nation, and they can be appeased if offended, whereas the local spirits are likely to strike one dead. Therefore, they take great care to be at peace with the local spirits, especially Rahu Guliga, a spirit that demands the sacrifice of chickens in a brutal ritual.
The Pambada people need to find their way to the God who gave them life and demands that they worship Him alone.
* Scripture Prayers for the Pambada in India.
* Pray that the sheer wonder of knowing Jesus and the impact He has on their lives and the joy He brings spur believers to share Christ with the Pambada people.
* Pray the hearts of the Pambada people would be stirred by a sovereign work of the Holy Spirit readying them for the time when they hear the gospel message being shared with them.
* Pray they will experience dreams and visions of Jesus leading them into a saving relationship with Him.
* Pray for an unstoppable disciple-making movement among the Pambada people.
