Introduction

In Murao marriage ceremonies, worship is performed by the priest at the gate of the house. This is followed by circling of the sacred fire seven times by the bride and the bridegroom. In their funeral ceremonies, before cremation, the head of the corpse is pierced with a bamboo. The Murao are mainly agriculturists. Some are employed in government and private jobs while others work as unskilled laborers.

Ministry Obstacles

Workers are needed to carry the good news of Jesus to the Murao community.

Outreach Ideas

Christian workers can use Gospel films and recordings, and they also need to care for the physical and material needs of the Murao community. Friendships need to be developed.

Pray for the Followers of Christ

There may be no followers of Jesus among this large community. However, please pray for those the Lord will soon call to himself. Pray that Christ may dwell in their hearts through faith.

Pray for the Entire People Group

Pray the Lord will start a movement of Murao families experiencing God's blessings. Pray they will have messengers of the good news of Christ sent to them. Pray for the Lord to open hearts to see and receive the living Christ.
