Pray for India - facebook

Beginning on 15 January and continuing for eight weeks is the world’s largest festival, called Kumbh Mela, held in Prayagraj in Uttar Pradesh. Between 100-150 million people are expected to take part and bathe at the place where the Ganges, Yamuna, and a mythical third river, the Saraswati meet. Devout Hindus believe that bathing in the waters of the Ganges absolves them of sins and bathing during this festival brings salvation from the cycle of life and death. Pray that many people will have their eyes and hearts opened to the free gift of salvation that Jesus Christ offers through faith in Him (The Bible, John 3:16).
