Release International Prayer Shields, Algeria and North Korea

Updated: Nov 10, 2019


Pray that Algeria’s Christians will be a powerful witness to God’s love and grace, especially to those officials who are obeying orders and shutting churches down.


Pastor Youcef is Vice-President of the Protestant Church of Algeria, an organisation of 45 churches. Several others have been ordered to close like his. Ask God to grant these church leaders wisdom.


A church and its Bible school in Boudjima, were closed in May, despite the fact that its pastor, Youcef Ourahmane, says the church has applied for a permit. Pray that this congregation in Algeria will continue to enjoy strong fellowship.

North Korea

Pray for three South Koreans detained in North Korea: Choe Chun-gil, who is serving a life sentence; and missionaries Kim Jung-wook and Joo Won-moon.

North Korea

Please pray for South Korean pastor Kim Kuk-gi who is serving a life sentence in a labour camp inside North Korea, for supporting North Korean defectors in China.

North Korea

Pray that workers like Soon-ja, who ministers to North Korean defectors, will be led to North Koreans whose hearts are ready to receive the Word.

North Korea

Rhee Soon-ja, 82, suffered intense persecution inside her native North Korea and her brother died in a labour camp. Praise God that today she ministers to North Korean defectors.
