“In Jangmadang, medicine for a cold that mimics a cold medicine from South Korea is sold for 2,000 won, a German cold medicine for 3,500 won, 5% glucose solution for 1,500 won, and 10% glucose for 2,500 won. Import of all of these drugs have been out of business for years, so most of them are likely to be fake medicines,” stated Radio Free Asia. North Korea has been struggling with a lack of medicines, but with the border blockade, various counterfeit drugs have been overflowing, threatening the health of its residents. We pray that the borders of North Korea will be opened soon so the needed goods will be distributed and that the people will be able to worship God freely.
“They said, “Turn now, each of you, from your evil ways and your evil practices, and you can stay in the land the Lord gave to you and your ancestors for ever and ever.” Jeremiah 25:5
Lord, we lift up to you the long-term border blockade that is having a huge impact on North Korea. The sales of counterfeit drugs have emerged as a problem due to drug depletion. We pray that North Korea will abandon its evil ways and return to God. We also pray that the doors will open as soon as possible so that the gospel will enter and be received by the people in North Korea.
We pray in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
