A Very Urgent Time for Prayer
by Open Doors UK
"Although there seem to be divisions, that doesn't mean the North Korean regime is about to crumble. The powerful elite behind Kim Jong-Un still needs him (or someone else of the bloodline) to legitimise their rule.
"'For the Christian church, humanly speaking, there won't be any significant differences anytime soon," says Simon*, Open Doors' coordinator for North Korea. "Simon says. However, if nobody holds absolute power any more, this does mean the regime is more vulnerable. Cracks in the power structure may grow wider. "We need to be prepared for every scenario," he adds. "And we need to pray. This is a very urgent time for prayers.'"
