The Hindu Jogi people of Bangladesh are followers of yoga. They are made up of religious mendicants (i.e., beggars) of the various Jogi orders, and people who live by fortune telling, practicing exorcisms and divination. Many Muslims in Bangladesh feel that the Jogi people are a threat to Islam.
There are only a few believers within this people group. Being Hindu is part of the Jogis' community identity.
It will take much prayer to break down the spiritual barriers before anyone attempts to reach out to the Jogi people.
"I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my eye upon you." Psalm 32:8
Pray for this people group to accept the Lord’s guidance and salvation.
A few from the Jogi community have reported themselves as Christians in the census. Pray that these believers can find Bible believing churches. Pray the Jogi would be able to find employment to improve their standard of living and provide for their families. Pray that there would be many Christian workers called and anointed by God to take the gospel to the Jogi people in Bangladesh. Pray for the Holy Spirit to touch the hearts of the Jogi people in Bangladesh in such a way that they would understand that they must accept and submit to the risen Christ. Pray for the Lord to raise up a church planting movement among this people in this decade.
