Challenges for Prayer
The land remains captive to Buddhism, traditional culture, spirit worship, and even occult practices. Pray for spiritual breakthrough, so that the Thai might truly be free in the Lord Jesus.
Praise God that national leaders now have a bold goal to reach every one of Thailand’s 80,000 villages and neighborhoods with the gospel! Pray for their plans: a national prayer network, leadership development, extensive research, community development ministry, all in addition to evangelism.
Pray for believers to develop lifestyles of prayer, Scripture reading, witness, and ministry.
Pray for Thai Christians to develop music, art, architecture, and styles of worship and leadership that will make sense within Thai culture, all under the Holy Spirit’s guidance.
Pray for effective partnership between foreign missionaries and Thai believers, as expatriates hand over leadership to indigenous workers.
