Christians Worldwide to Fast & Pray for N. Korea
Global Day of Prayer for North Korea – 15 April 2012
Arise, warriors of God!
On the 15th of April, the 100th anniversary of the birth of Kim Il-Sung, the founder of North Korea, will be celebrated. This will most probably be a lavish national celebration, with sumptuous dinners being arranged, to which international guests will be invited… All this will take place despite the fact that between two and three million people have died of hunger and that hundreds of thousands of prisoners are being held in infamous labour camps, including scores of discovered Christians.
Because of this, Open Doors calls on Christians worldwide to participate in a global day of prayer and fasting on Kim Il-Sung’s birthday on the 15th of April.
According to the US department of State, North Korea has one of the largest armies in the world. Its active duty military force is estimated to number 1.2 million.1
As God’s children we are part of His army and His army far outnumbers any force on earth. The Lord has given us the most effective weapon in the fight against the forces of spiritual darkness – prayer. So on the 15th of April, we would like to fight on behalf of our brothers and sisters in North Korea by fasting and lifting them up in prayer and asking the Lord to intervene in this nation.
