The greatest gospel gap in the world is in 50 countries—they have barely any new, thriving churches. And nearly 75% of all the world’s unreached people (3.6 billion) live in 12 of those countries. These people have the least access to the gospel in their own language.
Engage in strategic, focused prayer for the 12 countries of the world that are least reached with the gospel without ever leaving home.
Every month in 2022 we’ll feature one of these countries, familiarize you with its culture, and share prayer requests addressing the country’s specific needs. We believe the light of Jesus can shine through!
All about Thailand
Thailand is the most homogeneous country we have visited this year. Approximately 97% of its people are ethnically Thai and 95% identify Buddhism as their religion. Even the average temperature holds steady between 77° and 84°F.
Pray with us…
Pray for anti-trafficking organizations across the country that work closely with local and national governments to combat pervasive human trafficking in Thailand. Pray for Christian nationals to step into social work, law enforcement, judicial positions and every sector of society to rid Thailand of this form of modern-day slavery.
Tourism is extremely important to the Thai economy. In fact, Bangkok was the most visited city in the world in 2019. Sadly, the pandemic has drastically reduced tourism numbers, negatively impacting the local economy. Pray that God will not only protect the Thai people from COVID-19, but allow tourism to increase again. May He provide for the needs of those who have lost their incomes.
Thailand is one of the leading social media markets in Southeast Asia with over 50 million Facebook users and 80% of the population using YouTube. Pray that many will see and respond to online ministries and Christian posts that spark their interest in who Jesus really is.
