Description: The Assamese Muslims are a heterogenous group of Assamese speaking Muslim peoples which descend from defeated Pathan and Mughal soldiers who were allowed to settle in Assam during the 16th century.

Prayer Points:
• Most believers in the area are from tribal backgrounds and missionaries have noted a lack of indifference on their part about evangelizing their Hindu and Muslim neighbors. However there is one tribal-background ministry that is seeking to impact the entire state. Pray for their success and for Godís blessing on their missionary training program.
• Millions of Bangladeshi Muslims have immigrated to Assam. Pray that the recent breakthrough among Bangladeshi Muslims may spread among these immigrants and impact the Assamese Muslims as well.
• Pray for the deployment of missionary teams in every Assamese Muslim district, especially Cachar (470,000), Kamrup (260,000), and Dhuburi (240,000).

A Prayer: Heavenly Father, may the Assamese Muslims find in you and your Son Jesus the eternal hope and salvation they are seeking and longing for. May their hearts be awakened to your call and their spirits stirred to know the depths of your love for them in Christ.
Each year 25,000 Assamese Muslims die without Christ.
