[Prayer] Please release missionaries who are interned in North Korea
North Korea released Joo Won Moon who was interned in North Korea right after he came into the country from Dan Dong in April. He was repatriated to South Korea at the border village of Panmunjom earlier this morning. After attending at the special press conference and receiving negative information about North Korea, Joo crossed the border to know and experience its reality.
However, there are still missionaries in North Korea like Kim Jong UK who has been interned since October, 2013 and Kim Guk Gi and Choi Chun Gil since March this year. They were sentenced to life in prison. Prisoners in labour camps in North Korea hardly survive more than 3 to 5 years because the condition of the camp is horrible. We need to pray for these missionaries to be released soon.
Father, thank You for the Scripture in Jeremiah 15 verse 15 O LORD, you know; remember me and visit me, and take vengeance for me on my persecutors. In your forbearance take me not away; know that for your sake I bear reproach.” The North just released Joo who was interned in North Korea for a season. Father, there are still three Korean missionaries in North Korea and they are suffering after they were sentenced to life prison. Please stop the North Korean government’s cruelty. We pray for these missionaries to be released soon. Please have mercy upon them. Lord, we pray against the North Korean government’s evil actions towards Your people. Please protect Christians in North Korea. We specially pray for missionaries to have the pure and clear heart before You and receive divine wisdom for Your Kingdom. Please be gracious to them to know Your Will through the Holy Spirit. In Jesus' name we pray. Amen
