North and South Korea
A few months ago, I felt a strong urging from the Holy Spirit to pray for the removal of Kim Jong-un, the leader of North Korea. He was threatening South Korea, the U.S. and other nearby nations with nuclear war. We also prayed for the unification of North and South Korea. The primary goal of our intercession was to see revival sparked in both North and South Korea in place of oppression and fear. Well, things calmed down and on Friday of last week, South Korea’s president Moon Jae-In and North Korea’s leader, Kim Jong-un, met and signed an agreement to work on a peace treaty between the two nations in exchange for North Korea’s denuclearization.1 N. Korea has promised peace under his father’s regime in response to severe sanctions. They didn’t keep their promise. So, don’t stop praying for the Korean peninsula.
“You say, ‘I choose the appointed time; it is I who judge with equity. When the earth and all its people quake, it is I who hold its pillars firm.’” (Psalm 75:2-5; NIV)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
- Pray for the peace of North and South Korea—the peace that only God and His plans can give.
- Intercede for those who will write the peace agreement between the two nations.
- Ask God to judge and uncover any motives other than peace and cooperation between these two nations whose people are loved by God.
- Pray for hope to arise in the Church in these nations. Let them intercede like never before. Join them!
- Declare that this is the time for the prayers of Korean saints of both nations to be answered.
- Say to the enemy, “Set Korea free!”
A prayer you can pray:
Jesus, I come to You to ask You to be the peace of North and South Korea. You have heard and answered the prayers of the saints of these two nations to bring them to this point of a possible peace treaty. Let Your hand be the One that guides those who will negotiate and write this treaty. Judge the motives behind what has brought these leaders to this historic moment and let Your love put the words on the pages. Grant a renewed hope to the Church of both nations, so they are encouraged to press in with renewed intercessory passion! I declare that their prayers will be answered! In Your loving name, amen.
I decree that North and South Korea shall be free and united!
