[Prayer] Please protect North Koreans from radiation exposure
The explosive power of the North’s sixth nuclear bomb test done on 3rd was estimate of about 160 kilotons. This is 10 times more than the Little Boy atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima on August 6, which was about 15-16 kilotons. After the announcement, Chinese people living around the border area said, “If the North persists in testing the nuclear bomb. Northeast China will be contaminated by radiation. Even though the Chinese government stated the North’s nuclear bomb test would not affect China, earthquakes in Yanbian happened on 3rd has to be questioned.”
The researcher team of one of the Chinese universities concerns about environmental disaster by repeated nuclear bomb tests in Punggye-ri, North Korea which might cause the breaking of the test facilities. The South Korean Ministry of Unification expressed concerns about the danger and said it is closely watching the North’s next move.
There are about 1,400,000 people living in Kilju County where the Nuclear Test Site is placed in North Korea according to the statistics in 2008. If they are exposed by radiation, it will be disastrous not only to them but also to people in other areas and China.Lord, we thank You for the Scriptures in Matthew 10 verses 29-31 “Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows.” Heavenly Father, we pray for people living in Kilju province in North Korea. There are high possibilities of radiation exposure in the country. Please protect the land with your might arm and sustain the ground where the nuclear test sits stands. We pray for innocent people. Show your favor upon them so they may be spared even under the Kim Jung Un’s regime. We pray for their salvation too. We pray for Your Kingdom come to North Korea. Let them be blessed in the near future by worshiping You in freedom. In Jesus name, we pray. Amen
