Pray For The Persecuted: In North Korea being a Christian can lead to imprisonment and death. Pray for creative ways to get His Word into N. Korea and that ministry efforts will remain unseen by government authorities. Pray that Christians would have the courage to continue to share the Gospel and that God would open doors so they may do safely. And pray for salvation for new Christians and that they may join others in boldly share the Word of the Lord.
