Skip to comments.Prayer Request for So Korean Christian Hostages
Posted on 08/10/2007 8:43:06 PM PDT by tajgirvan
We are asking prayer for safety,well-being and release of the Korean hostages from Taliban terrorists. 2-3 of the hostages have been murdered! Negotiations for release are political, so the process is slow and painful. Please pray for families involved waiting for their loved ones. Thank You for your prayerful support. Hebrews 13:3..Remember the prisoners as if chained with them, and those who are mistreated, since you yourselves are in the body also.
Thank you for reminding us of these people being held hostage. I will surely keep them in my prayers
They are in my prayers. It’s becoming very dangerous for missionaries. An 80 year missionary in Honduras was killed recently by 2 men he hired to do repairs.
Prayers for their swift release.
We lift them up in prayer to the Lord; may they be aware of our prayers, and see the Hand of God upon them...
Prayers for their safe release.
I am sorry to hear that. My daughter has a good friend who provides an orphanage in Honduras. The days are growing dark.
Thanks for the reminder. Prayers up.
The Lord Bless you from Zion;
The Lord Who Made Heaven and Earth. (Ps.134:3)
prayers up, and BUMP!
They and their families are in my prayers.
My own daughter is a missionary who is currently serving at her mission orgs American office. but she has previously served overseas in Africa and eastern European former com-bloc countries. As a missionary's father I can certainly sympathize with the parents of those Korean girls who have put their lives on the line for their Lord.
Prayers for these godly people, ministering for good. May the Lord place His hedge of protection around them and comfort them.
The hostages will be included in my prayers.
Epow, I am so sorry to hear of your son. I pray for full recovery for him.
Thank you for your prayers for the hostages. I will be praying for your son and your family. Please let keep us up dated.May the Lord be with you.
O God of Compassionate Love, we Pray for the Families at Home. Be their Strength, our Merciful Lord; Rest them in Your Sweet Grace. May Thy Presence be with them in a Powerful and Tangible Way.
Thank You for the Promises in Your Word, our Loving God. I will be with you Always. (Matt.28:20) Thank You for Your Abiding Presence with Your Family, Gracious Lord.
Please Surround our Brethren with Your Arms of Love, Shepherd-King. We Love You, Praise You, and Thank You for Hearing our Prayers. In our Jesus' Name, we Exalt You for Your Grace, amen.
Another example of our weakened state. There was a time when the heathen knew better than to mess with a Christian missionary because they realized they’d pay a terrible price. Todays Christian community is so mixed up about this aspect of their responsibility. They need only look at the life of King David, a man after Gods own heart. He had no patience with the enemies of his kingdom. He dealt quickly, decisively and brutally with them when they “misbehaved”. A tactic that the Lord approved of. Now we are beginning to understand why. There is no place within Christianity for pacifism. We must break away from waging our wars in accordance with the evil U.N. Charter. We need a much stronger and aggresive military and not be afraid to use it. So that these kinds of tragic things don’t happen to our dedicated missionary’s. They have a job that needs to be done and they can’t do it because we are too cowardly and selfish to back them up. DD
Thank you for the Prayer Bump!
Thank you for the prayer ping, Dear Sister!
The irony is that these young South Korean folks are truly free, but their Taleban kidnappers (men stealers) are the ones imprisoned. They have no Saviour. They have no hope.
We pray that the LORD uses these young missionaries to bring light into the dark hearts of these men - and brings them to repentance...
8:36 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed....
And prayers to the other folks on this thread in need of comfort and healing.
I remember seeing a clip of Mr. T in a Christian movie hauling out an M-16 and growling that it was time that they put prayers into action.
However, I note with disgust that often, such conflict is labeled “sectarian violence” and “Christians and Muslims killing each other.” Paul Harvey in particular talks about that. I found it really hard to believe that Christians were using suicide bombers, or bursting into homes and taking hostages.
Lifting up Your servants in prayer.
Please soften the hearts and sharpen the minds of the Taliban.
Your will be done.
In Jesus’ Holy name.
Praying that they will ‘ Fear not,for I Am with you:
Be not dismayed, for I Am your
God. I will strenghten you.
Yes, I will help you, I will
uphold you with My Righteous
Hand’ Isaiah 41:10 ‘In His Name,
Thank you fieldmarshaldj for your prayers.

Have been sending prayers since the hostage-taking. More prayers are on the way.
Now about that time Herod the king stretched forth his hands to vex certain of the church.
And he killed James the brother of John with the sword...[snip]
Peter therefore was kept in prison: but prayer was made without ceasing of the church unto God for him.
And when Herod would have brought him forth, the same night Peter was sleeping between two soldiers, bound with two chains: and the keepers before the door kept the prison.
And, behold, the angel of the Lord came upon him, and a light shined in the prison: and he smote Peter on the side, and raised him up, saying, Arise up quickly. And his chains fell off from his hands.
And the angel said unto him, Gird thyself, and bind on thy sandals. And so he did. And he saith unto him, Cast thy garment about thee, and follow me.
And he went out, and followed him; and wist not that it was true which was done by the angel; but thought he saw a vision.
When they were past the first and the second ward, they came unto the iron gate that leadeth unto the city; which opened to them of his own accord: and they went out, and passed on through one street; and forthwith the angel departed from him.
And when Peter was come to himself, he said, Now I know of a surety, that the LORD hath sent his angel, and hath delivered me out of the hand of Herod...
Dear Father, We ask in your Son’s Holy Name for the protection of every hostage.We ask that You give Songs of Deliverance and praise and worship to comfort and console the hostages and the grieving families. We ask that the Hardened hearts of the captors will be touched by the bravery and love of the hostages.Above all,we ask that Your Will be done for Your Glory, Amen.
My prayers going up for their safe return.
There are other family issues that have been very troubling to us recently, but this situation seems to be working out in a way that is helping resolve those problems. As I said on another thread, God sometimes works out His will for us in mysterious ways that we can't understand, and I believe this present situation which seem so hard to bear for now will work out to the eternal benefit of all concerned. Again, thank you for your concern and for your prayers.
Please Know dear Freeper, your son and your family will be in our prayers.
Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.NKJV
LORD, Master of all of Creation, we humbly ask for your help and your mighty protection for these hostages. Please sustain them through their ordeal and comfort their families. Empower those working for their safe release. We pray that they may soon be reunited with their loved ones.
Also we pray, LORD, for the strength and conviction that we, as a nation, will stand strong and victorious against evil people who immerse themselves in hate, death and destruction. Help us to bring to swift justice those who target and attack innocents, especially those involved in this barbarous kidnapping.
All of these things we ask in Jesus Christ’s name, Amen.
Psa 91:1 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.
Psa 91:2 I will say to the LORD, “My refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.”
Father, I pray that you would help them to be faithful in tribulation. I ask you to fill them with your Spirit and supply all their needs according to the riches in Glory in Christ Jesus.
LORD, do for enow’s son what you did for me.
We wait patiently on your goodness, for your mercies are new every morning.
Great if your faithfulness.
We commit to You these children of Yours, for they are believers and are heirs of the Kingdom. May Your mighty hands shield them from all harm and danger and may not one of the hairs on their heads be harmed. Show they a way of escape, Father, and may each one live for Your glory. Make haste to help them, Gracious Lord, in the Name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
Islami Is As Islam Does...
Psalm 31: 12-19,21. In Jesus Name,Amen.
Thank you for your beautiful Prayer! May the Lord Bless .
