North Korea: Pray for Jo Chung-Hee and North Korean graduates of the VOM-sponsored Underground University.
Father, You are the author of all good things. You are enthroned in the heavens and sovereign over all things, over the political machinations of nations and over the 24-hour life cycle of an individual fly. Nothing escapes Your notice. Lord, I thank You for the blessing of education and for the opportunities You provide for Your children to learn more about You and about the world around us. I pray that You would sustain the graduates of the Underground University. I thank You for their boldness and diligence in seeking and completing these studies. I pray that You would teach them by Your Spirit how to apply their learning in the way that would benefit Your kingdom and glorify Your name. I pray that You would encourage them daily as they risk their lives to not only know You, but to share You with those around them. I pray that You would fill Jo Chung-Hee and his classmates with Your presence, that You would comfort them in their trials and strengthen them. Help them to hold fast to Your teachings and Your love. Let love and faithfulness never leave them. And Father, in Your goodness meet all the needs I they have that I could never think to pray for. In Jesus’ precious name I pray and ask these things, Amen.
