Jains

“And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” John 8:32

JainThere are over 5 million Jains worldwide, and close to 1 million of them live in Gujarat.  Jains follow the religion of Jainism, an Indian religion that promotes non-violence towards all living beings and emphasizes the necessity of self-effort to move the soul towards divine consciousness and liberation.  Jains are frequently wealthy and influential in their communities.  Pray for the Jains in Gujarat and around the world.  Pray that they will hear the Good News, that they will learn of the futility of trying to save themselves.  Pray that they will turn to the God who will truly set them free.
