Pray for North Korea: In light of the death of Kim Jong Il.

Jesus says: “The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the LORD’s favour and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn”.

Jesus seems like the guy who can sort this mess out – these poor Koreans have been lied to, oppressed and have been frightened into mourning an evil dictator who set himself up as a ‘Great leader’ only to be a devil! There is no freedom for North Koreans. We need to pray for them, and for the countless underground Christians who are telling these people about Jesus, risking their lives daily.

Yet the Christian church here is growing at a faster rate than nearly all other countries where any Christian faith is present. The blood of the martyrs is the seed of the Church.

Yet, there is hope – there’s a chance for change.
