How to Pray

North Korea continues to be the most persecuted nation in the world. If discovered, Christians face imminent death or a grueling life inside a labor camp. If a Christ-follower has children, they can expect their children’s teachers to encourage them to report any suspicious, faith-based behavior they see at home. The government will go so far as to search for Christians who have fled the country so that they can be returned and dealt with.

01
Pray for Christians living in silence to be encouraged in their faith and to grow in their knowledge of God’s Word.
02
Pray for an end to this brutal government that keeps its people in fear and bondage.
03
Pray for opportunities for the gospel message to be proclaimed and for physical needs to be met through covert methods.

Unreached people groups live in areas where Christ is unknown and there is little to no local church presence.
