I am currently in Thailand at the Vision 5:9 conference where about a 1000 people from 67 countries to encourage and learn from one another and seek God’s favor to see Muslims come to know Jesus as their Lord and Savior. You can’t be here, but you can join us in prayer. Blessings!
Please join with our family in prayer for the nation and people of Thailand over the next two weeks of intense mourning. 1. Pray for those of us who are Christians in this Buddhist nation. Ask the Lord to give us wisdom as we try to bring comfort and show appropriate sympathy to our friends and neighbors. 2. Pray for peace during the season of transition as the citizens of Thailand mourn the loss of their beloved King Bhumibol and usher in a new era with the upcoming coronation of King Maha Vajiralongkorn as Thailand's new king. While he has been in power since his father's death, his official coronation will happen later this year, once the official mourning for his father is complete. 3. Pray for King Maha Vajiralongkorn, that the Lord would grant him the wisdom needed to continue to move Thailand forward in peace and prosperity. 4. Finally, we long for Thailand to once again return to being the Land of Smiles and for the people of Thailand to come to know the One who brings everlasting hope, the Prince of Peace. Pray for us as we continue to walk with the Lord among our Buddhist and Muslim neighbors, that we would have opportunities to share the hope and love of Christ with the citizens of the Kingdom of Thailand.
