Tai Laing is more of a language than a people group. This language is spoken by more than 100,000 people in Myanmar.
The Tai Laing people live only in Myanmar.
Like other people groups in this region, Tai Laing speakers earn a meager living by farming rice and vegetables. Their meat supply comes from their livestock and by fishing.
The Tai Laing speakers are mostly Buddhist. They go to Buddhist temples and make offerings to gain spiritual merit. Like the other peoples in this region, they also serve various spirits that demand offerings and sacrifices.
The Tai Laing speakers need to replace their unhealthy fear of wicked spirits with a healthy fear of the God who created them.
* Pray for spiritual openness among the Tai Laing people of Myanmar.
* Pray for dreams and visions for Tai Laing leaders that will give them the willingness to encourage believers to reach their tribe.
* Pray for the Tai Laing people to have the chance to hear the gospel in a culturally appropriate way.
* Pray for a disciple making movement among this people group to transform their communities in Myanmar.
