Evangelist Franklin Graham issued an urgent worldwide call to prayer after North Korean leader Kim Jong Un threatened to cancel his summit with U.S. President Donald Trump.
Trump told reporters earlier this week that he was unsure if the summit would go on as planned.
"We'll have to see," Trump said. "No decision, we haven't been notified at all ... We haven't seen anything, we haven't heard anything."
Kim recently met with South Korean leader Moon Jae-in to formally end the Korean War. Kim also released three hostages earlier this month, one of them a pastor, in a good-will gesture.
The move was praised by Christians worldwide.
Ché Ahn, founder and president of Harvest International Ministry (HIM), offered this insight:
What many may not know is that 2,000 pastors gathered in Seoul, South Korea, Jan. 1-5, 2018, at our annual HIM conference. The speakers were Bill Johnson, Chuck Pierce, Lou Engle and myself. Lou gave a passionate message urging the Korean pastors to go on a 40-day fast and pray for the North and South Korea unification and the end of the war. Keep in mind in January, things were very tense between Kim Jung Um and President Trump.Hundreds of pastors made a commitment to pray and fast for 40 days starting some time after the conference. We noticed a dramatic shift of Kim Jun Um and his policy towards the South Koreans and the USA near the end of that 40-day period. I know millions of Christians in South Korea have been praying since 1953, but I can't help but believe that what we see taking place in North Korea is the result of the specific call to prayer and fasting that took place this past January.
