Lord, today our thoughts and prayers turn again toward North Korea. Please keep that despotic nation from nuclear capabilities, Lord. If they already have them, prevent them from using them. Lord, so much is about maneuvering. Like so many other world leaders, Kim Jong Un wants to be in ultimate power within his own nation and beyond. Lord, keep him from vanquishing his enemies. May the truth about his actions—both good and bad—come to light. Give him eyes to see and a desire to meet the needs of his people. Bring influences around him to steer him in the right direction. Draw him to you. We pray in Jesus’ name, amen.
