"Billy Graham Ministry Leads Miraculous 'Love Festival' in Thailand: How You Can Pray"
Breaking Christian News

Intro From Julie A. Smith:

Steve ShultzBeing born in Thailand and having a passion for my home country...I am always excited to see God move in the nations.

I know that many of you have a heart for the nations as well, and God has been speaking to you about your own Promise Land(s).

We posted this story with Franklin Graham in Thailand on our Breaking Christian News site, and wanted to share it with our Elijah List readers as well.

I pray this recent update from Billy Graham Ministries will encourage you to go after and pursue cultures that have hard ground to plow—even like Thailand, where the population is over 95 percent Buddhist and is also the sex-trade industry capital of the world.

God has spoken to me richly about my home country and I believe over the next decade Thailand will be known for carrying the presence of God and knowing His true peace.

If you want to co-labor with these upcoming efforts in Thailand, see the prayer points below...Yes, it's time for Thailand along with many nations of the earth to experience revival! (Subscribe for free to Breaking Christian News here.)

Breaking Christian News


"God's bringing unity to this city for the churches to work together like never before. The churches were so concerned about working with each other. They're realizing they can trust the Lord. It's a beautiful thing. The three denominations want to raise up the next generation. The unity has never been so strong in working for an event in Bangkok—a miracle." -Derek Forbes

On Jan. 19-20, Franklin Graham plans to share how this life-changing peace can be found in Jesus Christ at the Amazing Love Festival in the Bangkok International Trade & Exhibition Center (BITEC).

He's come to the country numerous times to offer humanitarian aid with Samaritan's Purse in the midst of the refugee crisis and natural disasters, and preached there for the first time in 2013. Last month, his son Will Graham shared the Gospel on the mountainous island of Phuket, where nearly 600 people made a decision to follow Christ.

Although the nation remains 95 percent Buddhist, thousands have come together in Bangkok, hoping and praying others will come to know the Lord.

"God's bringing unity to this city for the churches to work together like never before," said Festival Director Derek Forbes, who previously oversaw the 2013 Abundant Life Festival in Chiang Mai.

Over the past several decades, three Christian church denominations in the region struggled to partner together for the sake of the Gospel. In fact, many Thai pastors claim Billy Graham never held a Crusade in the area because churches couldn't work with one another.

"[The Amazing Love Festival has] been years in the making," Forbes said, noting the previous Festival brought the churches together. "The churches were so concerned about working with each other. They're realizing they can trust the Lord. It's a beautiful thing.

"The three denominations want to raise up the next generation," Forbes continued. "The unity has never been so strong in working for an event in Bangkok—a miracle."

While living in Bangkok over the past year in preparation of the upcoming Festival, Forbes has found it to be very different than his time spent in Chiang Mai. With a population of over 8 million, Bangkok is not only the largest city in Thailand, but also is an "up and coming city" according to Forbes. He's heard people refer to it as the "new Singapore" but with a cheaper economy.

However, the massive population comes with a tremendous amount of traffic, making it difficult to go from place to place in the city. It's also created geographical challenges for those trying to prepare for the Festival. As a result, the Christian Life and Witness Course training—instruction for those who desire to be prayer volunteers at the Festival—was offered in 105 locations across the area to nearly 7,000 people.

Additional preparations for the Festival include close to 600 churches participating in a discipleship tool called Operation Andrew, which encourages Believers to build relationships with others and invite them to church and the Festival. One of these churches decided to intentionally challenge its members to pray for their Operation Andrew friends for 21 days and invite them to attend a special Sunday service. While 137 Operation Andrew friends came, 112 of those came forward to follow Christ and 90 are now in follow-up classes.

This means revival isn't waiting for the Festival to start—it's already happening now—and Forbes is praying it will continue long after the event ends.

"I don't want to be a part of something that goes in a city, has an event and goes away," Forbes said. "I want to be part of something that is making a long-term impact with churches and new Believers."

How You Can Pray for the Amazing Love Festival:

Pray for the final details to come together before the Festival, especially as it follows the holidays. According to Forbes, "All churches shut down at Christmastime in Asia," meaning participants are having to jump back into Festival preparations.

Pray that those who have been invited to come to the Festival will attend, not being discouraged by the enemy.

Pray for Franklin Graham as he prepares to speak to the Thai people.

Pray that churches would diligently disciple new Believers, and new Christians would have a desire to pursue their faith.

Pray for revival to start in Bangkok and reach across Thailand.
