[Prayer] May the hard-economic hardship of North Korea be the key to unlocking the gospel unity!
Voice of America Broadcasting reported that after North Korea conducted a sixth nuclear test, gasoline prices skyrocketed. Compared to the beginning of this year, gasoline and kerosene prices increased by 3.1 times and 2.4 times respectively. Not only in Pyongyang, but also in other provinces, oil prices rose sharply.
Such a phenomenon is due to the adoption of UN Security Council Resolution 2375, the intensification of international pressure on North Korea and the Chinese government's economic sanctions being reinforced. Even though the residents are having more difficulties in making a living due to rising oil prices, the North Korean authorities are concentrating their efforts on ideological education so that they can gather together in a large anti-American rally by mobilizing residents.
Our desperate prayers are needed for the unification of the Gospel without bloodshed and without military conflicts on the Korean Peninsula will happen by the collapse of Kim Jong-Un regime as the North Korea is under economic crisis especially further troubled by China agreement to UN actions.
Our Father God, you said in Psalm 92:7, “that though the wicked spring up like grass and all evildoers flourish, they will be destroyed forever.” May China's strict enforcement of sanctions against North Korea that has severely limited the export of petroleum products to North Korea soon bring the result of the collapse of Kim Jong-Un regime. In addition, a political rift between the North Korean leaders will lead to a rapid collapse of the regime, resulting in no nuclear or missile being used on the Korean Peninsula. Thus, peaceful Gospel unification will happen without war. Ultimately, may the North Korea people freely hear the Gospel and enjoy the blessing of receiving Jesus so that North and South Korean believers will be in unison to praise and worship You as our heavenly father. I pray in Jesus’ Name. Amen!
