North Korea: Pray that North Korean defectors will meet Christian friends. They are often lonely and isolated.
Lord, You set the lonely in families. You hide us in the shadow of Your wings and You surround us with Your love and mercy. You are the one who numbers our days and the hairs on our heads. You place us in specific times and places in the midst of eternity for Your purpose. Lord, lead Your people in North Korea who escape the tyranny of their homeland. Lead them on safe paths through the woods, across the rivers, and into the homes of loving citizens whom You have called to be hospitable to Your suffering servants. Show them where to go to find encouraging people who have Your heart and who love like You love. Guide them with Your gentle voice. Whether they look to the right or to the left, let them hear a voice behind them saying, “This is the way, walk in it.” Don’t let them succumb to the spirit of fear which is of the world, but give them hope and a spirit of love and a sound mind. Give them courage and strength to move towards the goal You have set for them. Meet their needs which I could never know how to pray for. In Jesus’ holy name I pray, Amen.
