Pray for North Korea

Watching this video and being moved again to pray for North Korea it struck me that in Western democracies like the United States we often are quick to complain about and criticize political leaders, but comparatively slow to be in prayer for them. “First of all then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way. This is good, and it is pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.” (I Timothy 2:1-4)
