Ganesha Chaturthi, also known as Vinayaka Chaturthi, is the Hindu festival of Ganesha, the son of Shiva and Parvati, who is believed to bestow his presence on earth for all his devotees in the duration of this festival. It is the birthday of Lord Ganesha who is widely worshipped as the god of wisdom, prosperity and good fortune. Hindus love Ganesh and will bring giant idols of him into their homes. They worship him for 10 days, then they carry him in procession for immersion in the nearest large body of water. 

Please pray for the homes in Gujarat that will be filled with Ganesh worship for the next week.  Pray that they will be uncomfortable in the darkness and will seek to know the Light that is Christ.  Pray for Believers to be bold in sharing the Light with their neighbors.

Psa 97:7  All worshipers of images are put to shame, who make their boast in worthless idols; worship Him, all you gods!
