There are about 11million Sylheti Muslims, 7million living in Bangladesh, roughly 2 million living in India, and the rest scattered around the world. It is a common Sylheti Muslim practice to seek the dead at their graves for aid on Thursday evenings. Many Sylheti families have family members who live and work abroad. Those families which can afford it send their children to West, mainly to Great Britain. Poorer families send their children to work the Arabian Peninsula; but despite these measures, the majority of Sylheti Muslims live in abject poverty.
PRAY: Pray that Sylheti Muslims soon will have a Bible in their own language and the skill to read it. So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. (Romans 10:17). Pray for Sylhetis to find help, not from the grave, but from Jesus, who conquered death and is able to free them. “Our Saviour, Christ Jesus…has destroyed death and has brought life and immortality to light through the gospel”. (2 Timothy 1:10). Also pray for those Sylhetis living abroad to meet Christians who can tell them about Jesus and for the Sylhetis to pass the Message to their families back home. www.30-days.net
