The Pattani Malay, also known as the Thai Malay, are a large group of Malay
speakers who live in Southern Thailand. There is a separatist movement among them
which has led to constant turmoil.
• The Thai Malay have been the most accessible Malay population over the last two
decades, with the greatest degree of freedom to proclaim the gospel. Pray that
many believers in Thailand and around the world might make the most of this
opportunity to reach them for Jesus.
• Heavy drug-use among young people has led several ministries to establish
rehabilitation programs. Pray that those they are serving might be set free
through the power of Jesus and might become a testimony to their families and
• The upsurve in radical Islam in Malaysia has affected the
Pattani and could one day affect ministry among them. Pray that these
might be driven back and for stability to come to this land.
Heavenly Father, send the Prince of Peace to the Pattani people. May his love
captivate their hearts and bring them hope.
