Navratri continues throughout Gujarat and India. For many people, particularly women, Navratri is the most important time of worship throughout the year. Many will make a place for the goddess in their home and call her to stay there. Even those who do not perform daily ‘pujas’ (or rituals) may carefully observe fasts during Navratri. Many claim they have experienced the ‘shakti’, or power, of the goddess during this festival.
Pray for the people of Gujarat to experience the power of the true God this week. Pray that they will be drawn to him and will feel the hopelessness of their traditional worship. Pray for Believers in Gujarat to step forth boldly and share the truth.
and I will cut off your carved images
and your pillars from among you,
and you shall bow down no more
to the work of your hands;
