Official Language: Thai

Challenges for Prayer:

Pray for the following issues and for the wise leadership and reform needed to address them.

The political upheaval of 2006-2008 revealed deep fault lines among various political parties, the military, and the royalty. Protests brought the country to a standstill.

The violent insurgency in the southern areas near Malaysia has claimed thousands of lives. It is a result of some discrimination against the predominantly Malay Muslim minority and the radicalization of the same.

Tensions with other neighbors, including disputes with Cambodia and more notably Myanmar, from which over a million have fled disaster and persecution into Thailand.

Structures of sin and vice continue to prosper, despite increasing efforts to combat them. Corruption allows unscrupulous men in business, politics, military and police to enrich themselves while oppressing others. The moral blights of the sex trade, drug networks, crime syndicates and ecological degradation will remain as long as they are profitable and tolerated.

Pray for the breaking of these structures of sin by God's power.
