Introduction / History

Because of the growing influence of Islam, many Sengars emigrated from north India.


What Are Their Lives Like?

Many still are in India’s armed forces. Some Rajput Sengar people work in tourism by renovating old palaces and forts into hotels. Poverty is also an issue.


What Are Their Beliefs?

Sengar Rajputs practice Hinduism, the ancient religion of India. Hinduism is a catch-all phrase for the local religions of South Asia, so it is very diverse. At the popular level, Hindus worship and serve the gods of the Hindu pantheon. They visit Hindu temples and offer prayers, food, flowers, and incense to their gods in hopes of gaining protection and benefits. They do not have a personal or familial relationship with their gods like Christians or Jews.


What Are Their Needs?

Like all Rajput peoples, the Sengar community needs the Lord Jesus Christ’s full payment for the penalty of their sins.
They need someone to bring the Bible, audio and visual materials to them. They need to see the JESUS Film and decide as a community whether or not Jesus is for them.


Prayer Points

* Scripture Prayers for the Rajput Sengar in India.

Pray for a spiritual hunger that will give people Rajput Sengar people a willingness to accept the eternal blessings of Jesus Christ.
Pray for a disciple making movement that will bless these people for whom Christ died.
Pray for the Lord to thrust out workers to these people.
