International Prayer Alert: Pray for 30 North Korean Refugees in Danger of Execution–Urgent

International Prayer Connect February 23, 2012

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

International Prayer Alert: Pray for 30 North Korean refugees not to be sent back to be imprisoned and executed– URGENT

For the last two weeks, China has been threatening to repatriate 30 North Korean refugees. These are people who escaped the brutal oppression and starvation of their land, hoping to get a better life, and to go to South Korea eventually. They and three generations of their families (men, women and children too), potentially hundreds of people, will be sentenced to execution as an example by the Pyongyang government or at least to slave labor in one of the Nazi-style death camps in North Korea if China repatriates them as it says it will do.

The South Korean government has appealed to China to no avail so far and is now pressing the United Nations Human Rights Council. Yesterday, the New York Times reported that “South Korean diplomats are expected to call for the safety and humane treatment of North Korean refugees living in hiding in China.” (See the whole article

With this important issue finally before the world in such glaring manner, this could be a kairos time to see China’s inhumane policy on refugees changed so that those suffering in the hell-hole of North Korea can freely escape. Please pray for the following and let’s trust God together for this mountain to be moved (Matthew 17:20):

  1. That the North Korean refugees and their families still inside North Korea will be protected from harm.
  2. That China’s government will be embarrassed and ashamed of their policies regarding North Korean refugees and allow refugees to come across the border to find asylum there or to go on to South Korea to live.
  3. That China which supplies 80% of the resources to prop up the evil regime in Pyonyang will be moved to cut off those resources unless North Korea respects human rights and shuts down the Nazi-style prison camps in which hundreds of thousands of men, women and children are incarcerated. (In those camps, they are worked to death with little or no food and in terrible conditions or used for the testing of biological and chemical weapons.)
  4. That the United Nations will take up this issue aggressively and that the international community will strongly pressure China and North Korea to respect the rights of the North Korean people and reform their policies concerning them. 

Thanks for your persevering prayers of faith. The Lord will use them to shape history and bring His deliverance to North Korea!

Yours in Christ,

John Robb
