Prayer and praise

Please pray
As Covid-19 has struck North Korea hard both in terms of health of the people and the economic system, many North Koreans risk everything to make the illegal journey outside of the country in search of basic items, just to survive. Pray for those who have fled to encounter Christ through Christians and be of help to them.
Give thanks
By the grace of God and His faithfulness, last year Open Doors was able to support millions of persecuted Christians around the world. Thank God for the valuable prayers and support from the worldwide Body of Christ even in the season of a pandemic.
