Africa prays for the World
What is the world like now? Jungle? Heartless modern society? Of course, it is. But I heard there are people who pray for the world. In fact, I have been having a hard time these days. In the news, murders, accidents, and crimes are never stopped, and What if I become a target of crime? Whenever I think of this, I pray. Today I saw this YouTube clip, when this fear was coming. What were they doing? They were praising. Also they danced and danced. They danced for themselves. Don’t care others, and It seemed happy to get together. The dance with beat was very natural. It was not fancy. But The Liveliness of Africa!!! They shared the prayer points, joined hands and prayed together.
For The World and the Continent
- America – China, Europe etc.
- Effects will be global (Economic, Socio-political)
- Rain – countries facing the droughts
- Just governments – promoting people’s rights, freedom and responsibilities. Entrenching equality and security for all
- Strife – created by greed, hate, religious intolerance and political rivalry, consequently creating refugees and resistance movements.
“Thanks God. Giving us Opportunity to gather. we want to change the world better place. And we together pray. Africa will be saved. “
All the leaders of Africa Gathered
The ministers of all denominations and all the leaders of this community came together to bring peace. They said, “This is a historic moment!!! It is really so amazing!” (The master of ceremony made a bit of a fuss) They cried out “Please bring peace to our community! Please bring peace to our country!” Peace seems to be so precious to them. So, what is the current flow of the world?
Once Again the World is looking at the Korean Peninsula
The international community is paying keen attention to the establishment of peace on the Korean Peninsula because of the 2018 inter-Korean summit and the US-North Korea summit. When the North Korea’s Kim Jong Un and South Korea’s Moon Jae-in met for the first time, the whole world was moved and shed tears. There is also a highlight video on CNN. (http://www.peacestep.com/2018/05/09/resolving-conflicts-between-north-and-south-korea/) Kim Jong Un wrote “a new history begins now” and “an age of peace, at the starting point of history.”
But suddenly clouds are gathering on the horizon. President Donald Trump sent an official letter to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un to cancel the summit. President Trump said he knew the anger and public hostility of North Korea’s recent remarks. Especially, he said “You talk about your nuclear capabilities, but ours are so massive and powerful that I pray to God they will never have to be used.” This was a warning remark. However, the US-North Korea Summit was held!
Who is the hero of peace? Real Peace?
Some say that North Korea is the winner, the U.S. is the loser&winner, and South Korea is the loser. However it is clear that the Moon Jae-in is the midwife of the US-North Korea Summit in many ways. Mr. Moon persuaded Chairman Kim to engage himself in dialogue with the U.S. President Moon persuaded Chairman Kim to engage himself in dialogue with the U.S. By turning all the credit to President Trump, Mr. Moon made him an active participant in the North-Korea USA Summit. Bill Clinton, former president of the United States assessed it “Moon Jae-in the president is a true hero”. In the process, President Moon left a famous saying in Korean diplomatic history that “the Nobel Peace Prize is for Trump and we only need to bring peace.”
But the nation could not protect its people
The President Moon Jae-in said, “When the nation fulfills its role, the people can live without losing hope. The reason for a nation to exist is to reassure its people. It will protect them in difficult times. In order for a single person to live like a decent human being as a citizen in the Republic of Korea” But the government has turned away from their desperate appeal. Do you know the story of the late Gu Ji-in?
Earlier this year, an adult woman in her 20s died on a family trip. There was a hidden secret in the family trip. Its purpose is for coercive religious
conversion program, not real travel. Sadly, the late Ms. Gu was choked by blocking her mouth and nose at 5:40 p.m. on December 30 2017.
South Korea is a country where freedom of religion and thought is guaranteed by the constitution. But it was a sad event in which she was killed by her beloved family during a coercive conversion program, just because she was not a member of the mainstream religious body. Unfortunately, these conversion programs have happened and continue to increase.
The victims of coercive religious conversion program are 1,000 people and 77.4 percent of the victims suffered extreme trauma
According to Human Rights Association for Victims of Coercive Conversion Programs(HAC), The victims of coercive religious conversion program numbered about 1,000 from year 2003 to 2017. 96 victims were confirmed in the first half of this year alone. In a survey of 900 people from 2003 to March 2015, 52 percent claimed they were imprisoned, 42 percent of the victims were taken to coercive religious conversion program by kidnapping. It was even reported that 10 people were hospitalized in psychiatric hospitals for not being converted. More seriously, their pain didn’t end there. 77.4 percent of the victims felt extreme fear caused by a violent environment. And 65 percent of the victims suffered from mental disorders and stress due to the coercive conversion program process and the environment.

There is widespread condemnation of the human rights abuses of coercive conversion program all over the world. I’ll deal with this at #2.
