[Prayer] May Food Assistance to 190,000 North Korean Children continue ASAP
Voice of America (VOA) reported that the World Food Program (WFP) has shut down food aid for 190,000 North Korean children in May because of insufficient funding. WFP has also stopped supporting nutritional fortified foods for North Korean kindergarten students since April. And WFP have reduced the ration of nutrition-fortified confectionery and provisioned two-thirds. However, from early May of last year, WFP have even stopped supporting nutrition-fortified confectionery. WFP said due to insufficient funding, "We cannot continue our provisioning and there will be a major disruption to the North's food aid program.”
It can be said that the North Korean authorities' abuse of human rights, such as the death of Otto Warmbier detained in North Korea, has stopped humanitarian assistance from the international community. That’s why much prayer is needed that the North Korean authority’s violation of the human rights must stop to prevent interruptions in assisting North Korean residents especially North Korean children.
Psalm 100: 3 says, "Know that the Lord is God. It is he who made us, and we are his we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.”
Gracious loving God. We lift up in prayer for the World Food Program (WFP) halting its food aid to 190,000 North Korean children due to insufficient funding from the international community. Have mercy upon the starving North Korean children. May the North Korean authorities’ evil activities to stop immediately so that the aid from the international community will continue. Open the way for North Koreans to eat and survive. Bring Gospel Peaceful Unification on the Korean Peninsula without any bloodshed so that North and South Koreans will join in unison to praise our God through Jesus who is our king of kings and lord of lords. May all the Koreans will be ready as your holy people waiting on Jesus’ second coming. In Jesus’ Name, we pray. Amen!
