Although the main religion of Thailand is Buddhism, Islam is the predominant religion in Southern Thailand. Most Southern Thai practice a folk Islam mixed with animism.
Many people in Southern Thailand are Malay by descent, who ended up in Thailand when Britain and France established the country’s borders in the early 1900s. Of the 10 million people who live in the south, less than 0.5% are believers, mainly from Buddhist backgrounds.
Locals believe a particular city in this region has intense spirit activity. Many people travel there from other countries to make merit and appease the spirits.
About 20,000 Thai call Canada home and the vast majority are Buddhist.
PRAY WITH US:
Father, bless Thailand with a tremendous outpouring of your Holy Spirit! Thank you for the workers you have already called there! Bless them with protection, courage, and wisdom as they follow you into the ripe harvest fields. Would you send even more labourers to Thailand? We pray for connections with people of peace who both receive and share the Gospel with their friends and neighbours.
Bless many Thai with hearts that respond to your Good News. May the nation of Thailand yield a harvest of righteousness for the glory of your name! Amen.
