The Lodha are an agricultural community in Central India who claim descent from the
warrior "varna" in the Hindu caste system (called Kshatriyas or Rajputs). Though
they are considered peasants today they are gradually elevating their economic
status, and thus their social standing as well.
• The Lodha worship deities such as Hanuman, the monkey God, and Kali, the black
goddess of destruction. Pray for deliverance from spiritual bondage in the power
and authority of the name of Jesus.
• The Lodha have caste councils at the village level and regional levels, which they
call "the Assembly". Pray that Christ might be welcomed into these leadership
councils and that Jesus might be declared Lord over all.
• Many Lodha follow the Radhasoami sect of Hinduism which center around a guru
(spiritual teacher) and his devotees. Pray that many of these gurus might have an
encounter with the one true God and lead their followers into the Kingdom of
Heavenly Father, may the name that is above every name be declared and honored
among the Lodha. May they find hope in Christ alone.
