The Kahar are an ancient South Asian people who are believed to predate the Aryan
conquest of South Asia. They were subjected to servitude and forced to carry the
wealthy as palanquin bearers. They have their highest concentrations in the Indian
state of Uttar Pradesh.
• The Kahar have transitioned from their traditional occupation to become
entrepenuers and businessmen in cities. Pray that the Kahar might also transition
spiritually from a false religious system that enslaved them for centuries.
• The Kahar traditionally have a close relationship with the upper classes of India,
and even today they are the water carriers for the wealthy at funerals and
weddings. Pray that they might become a witness for Christ amidst this hard to
reach class of Indian society.
• The Kahar have community councils which unite them together and govern their social
affairs. Pray that the Spirit of God might transform these leadership groups to
emnbrace the Lordship of Jesus over their people.
Heavenly Father, may the Kahar experience all the fullness of knowing you and the
joy of seeking your face in the light of your Word.
