From John Robb:
During my recent Asian trip with visits to Korea, Malaysia and Indonesia, I
was able to speak about the situation in North Korea and ask hundreds of
intercessors to give it their focus. We have all been deeply moved by
the plight of the North Koreans and have been praying ourhearts out. I
hope that you as well have been able to lift the horrific situation
there to the Lord. Many including myself believe His deliverance is
coming as we join in the battle for this land through persevering
intercession! Please continue to pray for the following:
1. Liberation and reunification of the whole Korean peninsula
2. China’s allowing hungry refugees from North Korea to seek refuge and also to
pressure the North Korean regime to giveup its awful human rights
violations and persecution of Christians
3. Relief from the current famine for the people of North Korea and especially the children
4. Release of one American human rights activist, Aijalon Gomes, and a South
Korean Free North Korea Radio employee, Lee Peong Peong, from their
captivity by the North Korean authorities and that Governor Bill
Richardson or another US official acceptable to the North Koreans will
be able to negotiate for the release of these two men.
A very different prayer concern from Malaysia is from a Christian
business/marketplace group of 500 from 16 nations who will be meeting,
July 25-28, on board a ship. The organizer asks us to pray that they
will experience the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, bringing revival,
reconciliation and unity among these key people who could make such a
strong impact for His Kingdom. Pray that they will also get the vision
for the World Prayer Assembly and how they can be involved as it is
presented to them.
Much of my trip focused on the World PrayerAssembly and its process of organization. Please pray with my colleagues and me for the Indonesian and Korean national
committees who will be co-hosting the WPA, as well as the International
Coordination Team that we will have the Lord’s wisdom and help in this
challenging enterprise. We need to be effective in sharing the vision
broadly and mobilizing the right people from all spheres of society and
up to 220 nations to come. We also need to see His provision of
significant funding for this May 2012 event.
An exciting three-minute video about the World Prayer Assembly that CBN
Indonesia has produced is now available for you to view on Youtube.com.
Just go to that website and enter “World Prayer Assembly 2012” in the
search browser. Please have a look and let others know about it also.
We want the word of it to go to the ends of the earth and you can help
us share the vision.
Warm greetings in Christ,
International Prayer Connect/ Council
