The Bali people are those who live on or originated from the island of Bali. Most Balinese live in very close-knit villages with strong family, social, religious and economic interrelationships. The Balinese are known throughout the world for their artistic abilities. Hinduism is the primary religion of the Balinese. Even though Hinduism has greatly affected the culture, the Balinese have managed to maintain their original culture, so that Balinese Hinduism differs from Indian Hinduism.
Close-knit societies make it especially difficult for any one member to follow a different religion.
Pray for the Lord to multiply the reception and influence of His Word among the Balinese, leading them to love Him with their whole being.
Pray for the followers of Christ among the people of Bali to grow in their love for the Lord and for each other. Pray they will have power to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ.
A great need in Bali is a government plan for tourism development. Well-conceived and well-executed laws could preserve the beauty and culture of Bali as well as promote its tourist trade for many years to come.
