Prayer Alert

You all have probably heard that North Korea attacked South Korea a few days ago.  Apparently, North Korea has been doing "little" things like this to South Korea for the last 50 years, but this attack is one of the worst ones they've had so far.  In the recent attack, civilians were actually targeted and two were killed, causing outrage in South Korea.  

There is a fear that this conflict could escalate to the point where other nations would come to either North or South Korea's aid, which would be extremely, extremely dangerous, possibly leading to global war.  If you are a Christian, please pray that this situation will not reach that point, and that this conflict will be resolved peacefully. We are in a delicate situation.

Also, please pray for the Christians in both North and South Korea.  From what I understand, there is a strong presence in South Korea; I've heard that they have the largest Christian church in the world, the largest creation science institute in the world, and a heavy "export" of missionaries, so to speak.  I don't know how strong the Christian presence is in North Korea, but I know that however many Christians are there are persecuted brutally.  I once read a statistic that said North Korea has the worst persecution of Christians in the world.  (What a stark contrast between the two nations of Korea!)  Please pray for their protection, as well.
