Bhoi, Hindu of India
The Bhoi community is mainly a landowning one, though a few are landless. A Brahman priest officiates at marriages. These priests work in temples and are therefore accorded a high status in society. Every house has an altar to Manasamata. In addition, there are images of Khandoba and a few other gods and goddesses. Every family has a number of deities.

- As nominal Christians who don’t truly follow Christ’s teachings may be an impediment to the Bhoi, pray they will be able to see that there is a difference between disciples of Christ and those who are Christian only in name.
- Workers are needed. Jesus said to pray for workers, for the harvest is ripe.
- Though there may be no followers of Jesus among the Hindu Bhoi community at present, pray for God to raise up passionate disciples of Christ who keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
- Pray that the Bhoi community will be able to care adequately for their families. Pray that they will make schooling a priority for their children so the children will be equipped to live in modern times.
