Prayer Point: Tensions with North Korea
Shortly after midnight in North Korea, state run media released information indicating that Kim Jong Un has placed his nation’s missiles on combat-ready status in response to the United States cooperating with South Korea on military training. The North Korean government-run television station also showed a U.S. Strike Plan in which they threaten to attack Hawaii, Los Angeles, Austin and Washington. Whether or not they can actually deliver on such a threat may be questionable, but the threat is real. As tensions continue to rise between North and South Korea and Kim Jong Un threatens to “settle accounts with the U.S.”, we must be in prayer for the Administration and specifically for our Secretary of Defense, Chuck Hagel. We should also be in prayer for Secretary of State John Kerry as he meets with our allies in South Korea as well as surrounding countries like China.
For those using our weekly devotional, American Psalms: Prayers for the Christian Patriot, there’s a prayer for the Secretary of Defense on page 63 and for the Secretary of State on page 61 (Also available on Kindle).
