North Korea

PRAYER FOR THIS COUNTRY

In the Name of Jesus, we bless North Korea with a resounding shout of Truth that will shatter the lies and darkness of the enemy that keeps them bound to the illogical dictatorship of Kim Jong-un.

Bless the government of North Korea with humility and a willingness to listen and change.

Bless the poor in this nation with the supernatural provisions; reports say there are vast food shortages.

Jesus Christ, we pray for Your abundant life to flow through North Korea (The Bible, Romans 5:17).

MORE ABOUT THIS COUNTRY

One of the most repressive nations on earth for the past couple of decades, historic meetings between North Korea, South Korea, and USA leaders prompted hope for change, but none have been forthcoming. North Korea spends money on missiles of varying capabilities available to be sold to repressive nations and terrorist groups. Hundreds of thousands of prisoners are held in concentration camps. Experts estimate up to 70,000 of them are Christian Believers. The regime enforces a religion that worships its leaders. Christians face death if found meeting together, even saying the name “Jesus” or possessing a Bible. Believers remain underground but may number as many as 100,000. North Korea has entirely shut its borders to keep out the COVID-19 virus. Intelligence seems to indicate that drought has now resulted in a food shortage of crisis proportions.
