[Prayer] 'No envy in the world' The reality of North Korean children
According to the recent report of the '2017 Childhood End-of-Life Index,' by the NGO group 'Save the Children', North Korean children are known to live in a poorer environment than children in South Korea. The report scored a total of eight items, including mortality, malnutrition, uneducated children, child labor, married children, childbirth rates, refugee children, and murdered children. According to the report in comparison with South Korea, North Korea has 11 times the rate of suffering from malnutrition due to malnutrition among children up to 59 months of age, 7 times the death rate per 1,000 people, 4 times the number of uneducated children and three times the number of murdered children.
The North Korean authorities said, "Children in the Democratic People's Republic of Korea can live the happiest life in the world under the supreme leader and the Chosun Labor Party" Unlike high advertising, North Korean children are suffering from malnutrition and disease. We must pray for Kim Jong Un regime to collapse and a leader who fears God to be raised so that the environment of North Korean children can be improved.
We claim your promise in Luke 18:16 as we pray for North Korean Children. "But Jesus called the children to him and said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.”
Have mercy upon the North Korean children who are suffering from malnutrition and disease just because they were born in North Korea. Please continue to lead the international community in humanitarian support and the improvement of national policies to preserve the lives of young children. But Lord, I confess to the children need the word of the living God more than food and medicine. May the evangelistic balloon, the broadcast, and the Bible continue to be delivered so that the children will receive Jesus. May Gospel reunification come swiftly so that the North Korean children can grow healthily and brightly in a loving environment like South Korean children. Receive all glory and praise through the lips of North Korean children. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen!
