Please commit to pray and fast with us for the people of North Korea on Saturday, April 28, the International Day of Extraordinary Prayer and Fasting to Almighty God for North Korea.

While there have been many prayer vigils and services focused on North Korea, we believe that not just prayer -- but also fasting -- is necessary to combat the evil that reigns over the people of North Korea.

In January, 2018, Dr. Thomas Belke, one of the world’s leading experts on Juche and author of JUCHE: A Christian Study of North Korea's State Religion, testified before the Congressional International Religious Freedom Caucus about the spiritual evil pervading North Korea explaining that it can only be defeated by prayer and fasting. Citing Matthew 17:21, when Jesus told his disciples, “This kind [of demon] does not go out except by prayer and fasting” (Matthew 17:21), Dr. Belke reminded us of the many times in America’s history (e.g., President James Madison in 1814) when Americans appealed to Heaven with prayer and fasting to change the course of history.

We believe that a day of prayer and fasting to Almighty God by multitudes of people globally is the most important strategic weapon we can apply in the face of the horrible suffering we see impacting the people of North Korea, the most persecuted people on Earth. We see the escalating and growing threats to peace on the Korean peninsula from Kim Jong Un, but we know: “What is impossible with man is possible with God (Luke 18:27).” The Bible says: “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms” (Ephesians 6:12).

Strategic Timing: April 28th is also an important date in the history of the North Korea human rights movement. It is the anniversary of the first North Korea Freedom Day and the first day of the 15th annual North Korea Freedom Week (April 28-May 5, 2018). The first North Korea Freedom Day held on Capitol Hill on April 28, 2004, was the largest gathering of Americans to promote human rights in North Korea that had ever been held outside the Korean peninsula. Members of Congress credit that day as leading to the unanimous passage of the North Korea Human Rights Act, the first time emphasis was focused on the suffering people of North Korea. That led to action worldwide with similar action taken in Japan, the European Union, and eventually in the Republic of Korea Furthermore, there is a 40 day prayer initiative beginning April 29 th in South Korea, while the National Day of Prayer in America is also calling for a day of prayer for North Korea on May 5th . With the current focus on a May summit between Trump and Kim it is also timely to pray that such a meeting advance the freedom of North Korea and be used for God’s purposes. (Gen. 50:20)

Please join us for the International Day of Prayer and Fasting for North Korea on April 28th, 2018 by committing to praying and fasting with us.
