In recent years, agencies that monitor religious persecution have ranked North Korea first or near the top for violations of religious liberty, particularly against Christians. In response, Christians worldwide, led by the prayer movement of South Korean believers, have interceded on behalf of Christians in the world’s most-closed country.

With the recent North Korean attack on its Southern neighbor, tensions have swelled to their highest point in years, with headlines claiming the nations are on “the brink of war.”

The organization Voice of the Martyrs has stepped into this conflict with a positive opportunity for like-minded faith activists. Their Christmas outreach posted below provides a great way to not only pray but to act to help North Koreans this season with the love of Christ.

Reach out to North Korean believers this Christmas

Our North Korean brothers and sisters are blessed with
daily essentials through the Christmas Blessing Fund.

Our brothers and sisters in North Korea continue to
covet our prayers. Under the rule of Kim Jong Il, the needs of North
Koreans are sacrificed in order to bolster the power and control of his
regime. North Koreans are currently suffering severely because of
skyrocketing inflation and the shortage of daily necessities. Many are
starving to death.

Among the hardest hit are followers of Christ, who are treated with
particular cruelty for refusing to renounce Christ–an action that
recognizes an authority greater than the “Dear Leader.”

For a second year, VOM’s Christmas Blessing Fund is supplying believers
in North Korea with gift packages that contain food, toiletries,
medication, clothing and Christian literature. This ongoing project,
with distributions made throughout the year, helps to fulfill persecuted
believers’ basic needs.

You can get involved in this exciting project today as we grasp the
hands of our brothers and sisters in North Korea and share the blessing
of Christmas with them!

Continue to pray for boldness and strength for Christians living in
North Korea. Pray for God’s provision for those suffering in prison
camps and living in deplorable conditions. Pray that North Korean
Christians will have opportunities to share the love of Christ, even
with those who oppress them. Pray that God’s unrestrained mercy will
spill over North Korea, frustrating the wicked (Psalm 146:9b) and
delivering the oppressed (Psalm 40:11-13).
