Thailand coup sparks call for prayer

BANGKOK, Thailand (BP) — In a country that has already endured months of political unrest, International Mission Board leaders are calling believers to fervent prayer for Thailand after the Royal Thai Army declared martial law last week and gained control of the government in a coup two days later. “We pray for a resolution that is best for the Thai people,” Peter Hillen,* an IMB worker in Thailand, said. “Pray for people to be patient as this resolves. Please pray for our personnel to take opportunities to share about where their eternal security comes from; we can’t trust in man for our security.” Following the May 22 coup, IMB leadership continues to monitor the situation and has advised personnel to exercise caution and avoid areas where protests have been held.
*Name has been changed for security reasons.
