For the captives to be set free. There are an estimated 200,000 North Koreans, including women and children, currently being held in torture camps of the most terrible cruelty.

Please intercede for the salvation of all prisoners and guards, and for all torture camps to be permanently closed down.
For human rights.

Pray for the fulfillment of 2 Chronicles 7:14 worldwide; that we, the Global Church and Body of Christ would humble ourselves, pray and seek God's face, and turn from our wicked ways so that God's healing flood will be released upon the nations. Pray that our Lord's personal prayer, that "they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me. (John 17:21)", would now come to fulfillment; that we would suffer with all of our persecuted brothers and sisters around the world and truly love one another as He has loved us (John 13:34), that the Body of Christ will be healed and made perfect in unity (John 17:23) to manifest God's glory to the nations. Pray that we would be awakened by the Spirit of Truth (John 16:13) to see the whiteness of the world harvest (John 4:35) and to understand God's love and urgency for the nations (Mark 16:15); that we would pray, give, and go for the sake of the Kingdom of Heaven (Matthew 13:44-46) and Christ's Great Commission (Matthew 28:19).
