The homes of 20,000 people were bulldozed to the ground leaving the residents homeless and without compensation. The government says the land belongs to the state and will be used to build government ministries, foreign embassies, businesses and other public works. Some of those who were evicted say they have proof that their families had decades-old rights to the land.

Pray for those who have been evicted to be provided for.
Pray for the government to treat its citizens with justice and fairness (The Bible, James 4:17).

The former leader of Thailand's military junta, Prayut Chan-o-cha, was elected as the country's new prime minister. It was hoped that the young and popular billionaire, Thanathorn Juangroongruangkit, might win, but he was defeated 500 votes to 244. Though Mr. Chan-a-cha supporters say he will bring stability to the nation, critics say he will continue to bring greater repression and fear.

Pray for the radical salvation of the prime minister.
Pray also that the Church will stay strong in the face of persecution (The Bible, Galatians 6:9).
