One defector North Korean worker pleaded the following with a broken heart for the people after reading the article on May 6th from NK Labor Newspaper that read the problem of food shortage in North Korea is from the world food crisis not from within. "When you have a great general as a leader, why can't he resolve a simple problem as daily food? North Korea has a way blaming pressure from United States for its food shortage but why can't a great general overcome pressure from United States? And why is it that when North Korea claims that North Korea has abundant resources, self-sufficient farming land, and faithful labor force; and yet the people are starving." North Korea has to admit that the food shortage problem comes clearly from the sins of idolizing the government and military officers especially the three Kims.
O Lord you told us to consider the poor as if they are our own. We lift up to severe food shortage that North Korean residents are suffering as the government is ordering them to be self-sufficient about the problem. We pray that you will have mercy upon the North Korean people who have been suffering from food shortage for the last 20 years. We pray that somehow in your time that the North Korean will turn from their wicked prideful ways and surrender to you. May they realize that they cannot be self-sufficient and only can find sufficiency in Christ alone.
15 Christ is the exact likeness of God, who can't be seen. He is first, and he is over all of creation. 16 All things were created by him. He created everything in heaven and on earth. He created everything that can be seen and everything that can't be seen. He created kings, powers, rulers and authorities. Everything was created by him and for him. (Col 1:15-16 NIRV)
