Extreme Devotion: North Korea

DAY 1 OF 7

  Sang-chul: North Korea

A short film by The Voice of the Martyrs for the 2019 International Day of Prayer, Sang-chul: North Korea provides a dramatic example of the challenges of following Christ inside the world’s most restricted nation. The film will inspire you and your family, group, class or church to pray for persecuted Christians in North Korea and around the world.

Shot on location in Korea, the film shares the true story of Pastor Han, who was assassinated by North Korean agents in China because of his effective gospel work among North Koreans. The story is told through the eyes of one of Pastor Han’s disciples, Sang-chul, a man who has followed in his mentor’s footsteps by continuing to share the gospel with North Koreans despite the danger he faces.


Dear Heavenly Father, I praise You for Your love for the people of North Korea and for Your work to reach everyone in this closed country with Your love and truth. Thank You for the life and legacy of Pastor Han and all of those like Sang-chul who followed his example, sharing the gospel despite great danger. Thank You for the seeds of the gospel sown in fertile soil by faithful witnesses, growing to completion in Jesus Christ. Please help me develop a bold faith as I learn to trust in You. Lead me to people with whom I can share the gospel. In Jesus’ name I pray, amen.
