North Korea is ramping up its efforts to secure its borders.

North Korea is ramping up its efforts to secure its borders to prevent smuggling, defections, and other illicit activities, Daily NK reports.

"According to one source, Ryongchon County and Uiju County border barriers will go up during the first phase. In contrast, Sinuiju, Sakju, and other border areas will see barriers go up during the second phase. The source said that construction workers might build temporary barracks depending on the time needed to complete construction in each area.

'The river near Sinuiju is wide, so it’s difficult to cross the river or smuggle without [access to] proper transportation like ships,' the source said, explaining why Sinuiju had been slated into the second phase of construction.

Meanwhile, North Korean authorities have sent down an order designating the four counties of Kimhyongjik, Kimjongsuk, Samsu, and Taehongdan as 'phase one' construction sites. Approximately 3,000 construction soldiers have been deployed to the sites" (Daily NK).

The next day a harmful spirit from God rushed upon Saul, and he raved within his house while David was playing the lyre, as he did day by day. Saul had his spear in his hand. And Saul hurled the spear, for he thought, “I will pin David to the wall.” But David evaded him twice. I Samuel 18:10-11

Father God, we pray that God's people in North Korea would receive your favor and be strengthened under the reign of a tyrant king, like David was under king Saul who was gripped by an evil spirit. Free Your people from this tyranny and use their suffering to draw them closer to You. Raise them up from the dust, lift them up from the ash heap, to make them sit with princes. For the pillars of the earth are the Lord's and on them he has set the world (I Samuel 2:8). In the name of Jesus, Amen.
