North Koreans are suffering every day. Many are dying of starvation. Gulags are full of persecuted Christians. The entire nation is a prison.
North Korea needs your prayers.
For the month of April, Back to Jerusalem is praying for North Korea every day for 30 days.

Few places in the world are like North Korea. Today, even though it seems cold, sterile, and isolated from the rest of the world, on the other side of the heavily armed borders hides a land of rich Christian history and flaming hot revivals. Really.
Deep inside the Hermit Kingdom lies the secret embers of a revival fire that once burned in the hearts of the people. Revival fires burned so hot in North Korea that Pyongyang was literally nicknamed “The Jerusalem of the East.” Churches were filled, Bible schools were packed, and missionaries were on almost every corner handing out tracks to passersby, but that scene is a far cry from the North Korea of today.
If North Korea would like to see revival again it will take more than nostalgic stories of days gone by, it is going to take prayer and sacrifice. Not the kind of prayer that comes cheaply, but the kind of prayer that requires Christians around the world to stand in the spiritual trenches with their brothers and sisters of North Korea and abandon their regular past time activities for the spirit of a warrior.
BTJ’s 30 Days of Prayer for North Korea will not be easy.
I am not going to lie to you. This is the kind of prayer that takes you outside of yourself and leaves you exhausted and drained. This prayer can leaves us unplugged and render us temporarily useless to the world around us. It can be poetic, jumbled, passionate, tired, rewarding, unrewarding, and raw unintelligible groans all at the same time.
But you don’t have time, right? You have a wife, hus- band, kids, soccer games, and one of the busiest jobs ever – right?
Only prayer with absolute abandon will do. Abandon- ment of ambitions, health, and self-recognition will be the only kind of prayer to break the darkness that is currently strangling North Korea.
This 30 Days of Prayer for North Korea consists of stories and testimonies collected by Back to Jerusalem over the last fifteen years that will help give insight for strategic prayer so that you can pray with purpose.
To help strategically pray, this prayer guide is broken into three parts. First, we identify the parts of North Kore- an culture and history that the enemy has used to shackle the people with poverty and pain. Second, we will share amazing testimonies that will bring hope as you pray. Last, we will open up the secret doors of ministry that are currently taking place inside the Hermit Kingdom to practically tear down the strongholds of the enemy. Each day of prayer will only take five minutes to read through, but your continuous prayer throughout the day for the entire 30 days is essential.
We at Back to Jerusalem believe that the day is coming when the spiritual walls around North Korea will come tumbling down and the freedom of Christ will prevail in the hearts of the people, but in order to see that, the Body of Christ needs to pray; pray like never before.
