Holi, not Holy

 During the third week of March, Hindus throughout the world will celebrate the festival known as Holi, an annual celebration during which participants build bonfires and enjoy throwing colored powder and colored water at each other. Also known as the Festival of Colors, it is one of the most exciting holidays for Indians. However, while it is a very fun festival, it also holds a great deal of religious meaning and commemorates many different events in Hindu mythology. Please pray for Hindus of Gujarat as they celebrate this festival. Ask that in the midst of the fun and excitement of Holi, the Gujarati people will still feel the emptiness in their souls, and that this will lead them to Christ, the only one who can fill that emptiness. Pray that Christians will be bold to share Truth with their Hindu friends.
