North Korea launched a short-range ballistic missile toward its eastern waters on Thursday, South Korea’s military said, hours after the North threatened to launch “fiercer” military responses to the U.S. bolstering its security commitment to its allies South Korea and Japan. It was North Korea’s first ballistic missile firing in eight days and the latest in its barrage of tests in recent months. North Korea previously said some of the tests were simulations of nuclear attacks on South Korean and U.S. targets.
Father, we pray that You cause every impending war between this nation and any other nation to cease. Cause Your people in these nations to rise and pray so they may live in peace in the land in Jesus Chris name (Psalms 46:9, 1 Timothy 2:2).
