What’s “top of heart” with King Jesus? Justice, the poor, prisoners for His name. “Remember the prisoners AS IF chained with them — those who are mistreated — since you yourselves are in the body also” (Hebrews 13:3). Will we identify “AS IF” with our Christian Family in North Korea? This is a core component of Christ-following. Includes audio excerpt from escapee. Arielle Del Turco is Assistant Director of the Center for Religious Liberty at Family Research Council in Washington, D.C.

Pray for North Korea

Pray North Korean officials will come to know God, for change within the regime and that the power of evil will be broken.
During a year when North Korea raised its profile on the world stage, Kim Jong Un continues to consolidate his power. Pray he will accept the one, true God.
Open Doors provides North Korean Christians with food, medicine and clothing and safe houses for North Korean refugees in China. Pray the church is strengthened and encouraged to endure by this provision.
Pray for Christians who suffer in prisons, labor camps and remote areas to have hope.
