Description: The Thai Khorat are the descendants of Thai who intermarried with the Khmer in the 14th century and formed a unique ethno-linguistic group. Estimates of their population range from 500,000 to 2 million. Their dialect is described as being half-way between Central Thai and Isan (Lao).

Prayer Points:
• The Thai Khorat have only recently come to the attention of mission agencies due to the efforts of mission researchers. Pray for additional survey work to be done among them and for intentional church-planting efforts to be initiated among them using their unique Thai language.
• The Thai Khorat have very few believers among them though there are many hundreds of churches among neighboring Thai groups with a Thai-Chinese population. Pray for a spiritual awakening to being among them and that the gospel would come to them in a culturally appropriate way.
• The Jesus Film has been recently completed in Thai Khorat though the Scriptures are not yet available in print form. Pray for wide receptivity to the showing of this film and for churches to come about as a result.

A Prayer: Heavenly Father, though the world has forgotten about the Thai Khorat, you have not. May your church be stirred to bring the Thai Khorat the truth about who you are and your love for them.
Each year 5,000 Thai Khorat die without Christ.
