[Prayer] North Korea has been on “World Watch List” countries where Christians are persecuted most for last 14 consecutive years
Through the 'World Watch List 2018', the 'Open Doors', an international Christian mission Organization pointed to North Korea as the country with the greatest persecution of Christians in the world. Nigeria, Pakistan, the Central African Republic, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Egypt, Cameroon, India and Nepal have threatened and killed Christians. And North Korea has been named the worst Christian persecution nation for last 14 consecutive years. Open Doors claims that if North Korean Christians estimated to be 300,000 are found by the NK authorities, they will surely die at the prison camp. Open Doors explained that the exact victim cannot be identified because it is almost impossible to enter North Korea. https://www.opendoorsusa.org/christian-persecution/world-watch-list/north-korea/
We raise the grievous situation of the North Korean believers into the hands of our God for we cannot get the count of the victims because once they believe in Jesus, they will be dragged to the prison camp to die. We pray that the North Korea’s sin against God will cease immediately and peaceful Gospel reunification without any bloodshed will come about throughout Korean Peninsula so that North Korean believers will be able to worship God freely and bask in the grace of our God.
The Bible says in 1 Corinthians 1:18, " For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. Despite the persecution of the North Korean authorities, I am praying for the faithful North Korean believers. I pray that the North Korean authorities will immediately stop the wrongdoing of killing innocent life just for believing in Jesus. May God's gospel be saturated throughout North Korea so that people of faith will permeate throughout North Korea. In addition, may peaceful gospel reunification on the Korean Peninsula take place safely and swiftly so that the saints of the underground church will come above ground to praise and worship God freely. May the day come soon when collapsed churches be restored, and God’s Word be saturated throughout 4,777 villages in North Korea. In Jesus’ Name, I pray. Amen!
