A request for prayers from Korea

A request for prayers from Korea


I received this prayer request from Daniel Lee, who served the former All Peoples Church in Belmont. 




Dear Colleagues and Friends in Christ,

This is Daniel Lee from Korea. As you heard from news, all Korean people are now grieving for the sudden disaster and suffering from trauma. The National Council of Churches in Korea has declared a special prayer period from April 21 to May 5 for the parents and the families of the victims in the passenger ferry capsized in the waters last Wednesday. 320 out of total 475 passengers on board were high school students who were going to Jeju Island for their field trip. Only 174 passengers including 77 students were rescued. The rescue and search process is still going on. People here are all shocked and feeling frustrated by this sudden disaster.

So I’d like to ask all of you and your churches to join us in this special prayer period for the people of south Korea, particularly the parents and families of the victims.

Peace and Grace in Christ,

Daniel Lee
