Ministry Prayer Needs

Unrest in Thailand
The nation of Thailand has been rocked by protests that began in November 2013. Anti-government activists have alleged corruption on the part of the country's current government and are opposing the results of an election held in February. At least 23 people have been killed and hundreds have been injured in the ongoing unrest. Join us in praying for a swift end to the violence and for the safety of the staff and volunteers of Lutheran Hour Ministries—Thailand. Pray, too, that our ministry center will have opportunities to reflect the peace and hope that can only be found in Jesus Christ.
