Pray for Peace in Thailand

Thailand is a politically fractured nation with two political parties that identify themselves by colors, the red shirts and the yellow shirts (For a good news article, see the BBC news on this link > http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-25099105.)
These two groups have had many protests over the last ten years, however the last 2 years have been peaceful.  Now the protests have started up again, and the yellow shirts have invaded and shut down some government buildings in Bangkok.  Yingluck Shinawatra, the prime minister of Thailand, invoked emergency powers to gain control of the situation.

Please pray for peace.  Each time we have seen a wave of protests, they have been more severe than the one before.  And the last one was bloody.  Thailand is not near the point of civil war, but these protests make it trend towards danger.

It will mean a great deal to the Thai Christians, knowing that Christians in America are praying for them and praying for peace in their nation.
