Speaking the Truth in Love


“For God so loved the [people of India] that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16).

The Republic of India is a country in South Asia bounded by the Indian Ocean, the Arabian Sea, and the Bay of Bengal. India shares land borders with Pakistan, China, Nepal, Bhutan, Burma, and Bangladesh. India has an estimated population of almost 1.3 billion (making it the most populous democracy in the world). The nation’s capital is New Delhi, and Mumbai is its largest city.

Hindi and English are India’s official languages. The national motto is: “Truth alone triumphs.” The predominant religion is Hinduism. Today we pray that every Indian will come to know and believe in Jesus, the embodiment of truth: “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but by me” (John 14:6).
