How to Pray for the Bengali Diaspora:
Pray that God would raise
up people to reach out to Bengali Muslim communities all over the world.
Pray that God would call
Bengali Muslim background believers to reach out to communities of their people
outside, as well as call some of those who come to faith abroad to return to
Bangladesh and India to share with those in their homelands. Remember the
Ethiopian Eunuch (Acts 8:26-40). God touched that man who was traveling and
used his witness and influence to reach his people.
Pray for God’s Spirit and
blessing to be poured out on the Bengali Muslims of Bangladesh and West Bengal,
and that Muslim convert fellowships in those areas would send apostolic church
planters to other Muslim peoples worldwide.
