North Korea has been ranked as the hardest country to live as a Christian since 2002. Christians face extreme levels of pressure and violence in all areas of life, even just owning a Bible is illegal. Many Christians live as secret believers, and don’t even share their faith with their children or family.

Pray: For North Korean believers to fix their eyes on Jesus amid extreme suffering.
