We might chuckle at some of these odd superstitions.
But in India, superstition is no laughing matter. Superstition and fear go hand in hand. It can be dangerous.

Many believe amulets will protect them from evil spirits, give them luck, and provide healing power. Widows are considered unlucky or even cursed.
We see many heartbreaking stories from India about superstition like this little boy’s parents had a hole burned in his hand as part of a local superstitious “cure.”
Will you join us in prayer that men, women, and children in India will experience freedom from fear and superstition through the power of Jesus Christ?
