Praying BiblicallyWe need to pray the promises of scripture on behalf of the people in North Korea. Let us look at some verses about seeking God and pray them for these people of the North.
“You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.” Jeremiah 9:13
“Father God, we pray that people in North Korea will seek you with all their heart and that you would allow them to find you. Please make them thirsty for you. Please fan into flame that tiny spark of awareness of you that you have set in each one of them. We pray that you would draw the people of North Korea to yourself.”
And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him. Hebrews 11:6
“Father God, we pray that many in the North will earnestly seek you, even though their teaching says you do not exist. We pray that many will believe in you and will be pleasing to you through faith in Jesus Christ. We pray that, like you did for Cornelius, you would send more light to the seekers, rewarding those who are searching for you.”
For the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost. Luke 19:10
“Father God, we pray that you will search for the lost in North Korea. We pray that you would cause them to seek you. We pray that you will draw them to yourself, to your word, to the gospel of Jesus Christ and to people who can explain the gospel to them. May they hear the gospel and come to you in repentance and faith.”
