It’s not too late to start praying

November 26, 2010

I wrote a blog entry a few months back, in which I said there was nothing we could do but to hope, and hope some more that all the conflicts and terrorist attacks would soon come to an end. A few months later, tensions between the two Koreas are extremely high. When I was browsing my Facebook news feed yesterday, there were many status updates, praying, hoping, and even begging for the situation to improve. One of them caught my eye. It was from one of our History tutors, “the chain reaction leading to WWI naturally came to my mind.”

Just the thought of it sent shivers down my spine. For those of you who are not familiar with the history of the First World War, I’m going to make it short. Basically it started off with a little conflict between Serbia and Austria, with Russia and Germany backing their respective ally, as well as the declaration of joining the war by other countries like France, Britain, Italy, the Ottoman Empire, China, Japan and later on the US, it developed from a local war to a world war.

We all know that the danger of this conflict developing into something more disastrous exists – North Korea asking for China’s help, and South Korea asking for America’s. If the two super countries are involved in this, this local war could lead to global involvement.
This might sound pessimistic, but mind you, people all over the world thought the war started in July 1914 would end in a few months’ time. It ended four years later.

You might start to think, well, our prayers haven’t been heard. Yes, and we are not sure if they will ever be, but (there’s always a but) this is politics, there is really nothing more we can do.

Pray for Korea. Pray for the world.
