All Eyes on Singapore as Trump, Kim Prepare For Tuesday's Unprecedented Summit

President Trump has a relatively quiet day scheduled in Singapore Monday, following the weekend's fractious G7 gathering in Canada and ahead of Tuesday's historic summit with Kim Jong Un.

The president's program includes a one-on-one meeting with Singaporean Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong followed by an expanded working lunch, and then a meet-and-greet at the U.S. Embassy in the afternoon. The White House has yet to announce anything beyond the embassy visit.

Air Force One landed at a military airbase on Sunday night, about five hours after the Chinese aircraft carrying the North Koreans arrived at Changi international airport several miles away.

This is the furthest Kim Jong Un has traveled since taking power on this death of his father Kim Jong Il in 2011. The North Korean dictator is not known to have left his country apart from two recent trips to China. He briefly stepped across the demarcation line dividing the two Koreas during his late April summit with South Korean President Moon Jae-in.

. . . Trump's delegation includes Pompeo, chief of staff John Kelly, and National Security Advisor John Bolton.

For his part, Trump has expressed optimism and "a very positive spirit," saying he expected to be able to judge "within the first minute" of meeting Kim whether he was serious.

"I think I'll know pretty quickly whether or not, in my opinion, something positive will happen," he told reporters before leaving Canada on Saturday. "And if I think it won't happen," he added, "I'm not going to waste my time. I don't want to waste his time."

The host prime minister, Singaporean Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, voiced caution about the expectations of the summit.

"I am hoping that it would lead to denuclearization eventually, which will be a long process," Lee told reporters at an international media center, predicting "many twists and turns."

"They have been at war for almost 70 years, the nuclear issue has been there for 25 years at least, since the early 1990s," he said.

Citing broken agreements, distrust and misunderstanding, Lee added, "You cannot wipe that all away with one meeting. What you can hope to do is to start things moving in a positive direction and hope to build up progressively along the way." ( Read more.

- Pray for God's perfect will to be done in every aspect of this upcoming Summit. Bind all spirits of deception that would cloak the truth in darkness and call forth the Light of Christ to prevail. Pray for the protection of all parties involved.

- "Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven." (Matthew 6:10)

1. President Trump tells Fox News he feels 'very good' about historic summit with North Korea's Kim Jong Un - Fox News

Trump arrives in Singapore ahead of critical summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un

Embarking on what he has called a "mission of peace," President Trump landed Sunday evening at Singapore's Paya Lebar Airbase for a historic summit with North Korean autocrat Kim Jong Un.

Asked by a reporter on the tarmac how he was feeling about the summit after landing in Air Force One, Trump replied: "Very good."

. . . rump sounded a positive note on his upcoming meeting with Kim. No sitting U.S. president has ever met with the leader of North Korea.

"It's unknown territory in the truest sense, but I really feel confident," Trump told reporters Saturday. "I feel that Kim Jong Un wants to do something great for his people and he has that opportunity and he won't have that opportunity again."

Trump made it clear, however, that the stakes are high, even as he said he believes "North Korea will be a tremendous place" if it makes the right decisions.

"It's a one-time shot and I think it's going to work out very well," he said. (Read more)

2. Trump Suggests White House Visit for Kim Jong-Un If Summit Goes Well -

If all goes well with the upcoming U.S.-North Korean summit, North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un will be invited to the White House, President Donald Trump said Thursday.

During a joint White House press briefing with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, the president was asked under what conditions would he walk away from the summit, and if the June 12th summit went well whether he would invite Kim Jong-Un to the U.S.

"Well, the answer is yes to the second part of your question, but certainly if it goes well, and I think it would be well received. I think he would look at it very favorably. So I think that could happen," Trump said.

"Sir, if you do invite him to the White House -- or to the United States, would it be here at the White House or at Mar-a-Lago?" a reporter asked.

"Maybe we'll start with the White House," the president said.

"All I can say is I am totally prepared to walk away. I did it once before. You have to be able to walk away. If you're not going to be able to walk away -- we didn't walk away from the horrible Iran deal that was signed," Trump said. (Read more)

The SUMMIT taking place in Singapore is an historical moment. It will be a "definitive" encounter between the representatives of two different worlds, a time when LIGHT will confront darkness, and the gift of LIFE will be offered to a people who have been living in the shadow of death!

"We are part of the SUMMIT"... all of us who are standing in the gap in intercession for our President, who is the representative of this nation. We see him with his right hand lifted up to the Lord and we are supporting him as he rises to speak and act!

President Trump's has declared that his WHOLE LIFE was preparation for this summit. He is a CHAMPION of GOD and many are "cheering him on", praying for him and his mission! He will prevail! As intercessors, our lives have prepared us for our assignment! We will not be distracted, pulled off task or denied the satisfaction of completing our assignment. We will prevail!

As part of this summit, we have received specific assignments, the first of which is to pray for physical protection for the President, regarding people, food, air, even to the shaking of his hand! Others will follow as we come together to pray.

- Pray that the Holy Spirit gives President Trump the words to speak.

- "For the Holy Spirit will teach you in that very hour what you ought to say." (Luke 12:12)

1. Pompeo: North Korean Leader 'Has Indicated to Me Personally That He Is Prepared to Denuclearize' -

North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un is "prepared to denuclearize" and has indicated as much to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, the secretary told reporters Thursday.

When asked what opinions Pompeo has formed about Kim Jong-Un as a person having met him twice, Pompeo said, "So I haven't spent that much time with him. What I have said publicly is he has indicated to me, personally, that he is prepared to denuclearize, that he understands that the current model doesn't work, that he's prepared to denuclearize.

"And that, too, he understands that we can't do it the way we've done it before -- that this has to be big and bold, and we have to agree to making major changes," Pompeo said at a White House press briefing.

"We can't step through this over years, but rather need to acknowledge it will take some amount of time, that this doesn't happen instantaneously, but that the model for succeeding -- security assurance; and political normalization; and denuclearization completely, verifiably, and irreversibly -- for that to take place, we've got to make bold decisions," he said.

"And I'm hopeful that Chairman Kim Jong Un is prepared to make that decision for his country, a big shift in his strategic understanding of his security," the secretary said. (Read more)

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Thursday the administration would like Congress to "have a say" in any nuclear agreement reached with North Korea, contrasting that approach to what he called the Obama administration's "flimsy piece of paper" - apparently a reference to the Iran nuclear deal.

Briefing reporters at the White House on next week's summit with Kim Jong Un, Pompeo also countered the notion that President Trump will not be adequately prepared when he meets with the North Korean dictator in Singapore, even as he stressed that Trump's

As people of prayer, we want to lean on God's Word and claim His promises.

Prayer Points from Revive Israel

Trump-Kim Summit in Singapore

From Asher Intrater

The North Korean regime has been one of the most brutal of our generation. The worst brutality has been focused on the suffering evangelical Christian community. The potential for change is enormous, as well as the potential for deception.

Here are a few scriptural guidelines for prayer (without any particular political assumptions):
1. God's will to be done on earth as in heaven - Matthew 6:10

2. Righteousness and justice to flow down - Amos 5:24

3. Trump and Kim to be directed by God's hand - Proverbs 21:1

4. Demonic deception to be uncovered - II Corinthians 2:11

5. Punishment to be meted out to criminal and cruel agents - Romans 13:4

6. Persecuted Christians and all innocent people to be set free - Exodus 5:1

7. Unjust leaders to be removed and just leaders to be raised up - Daniel 4:17

8. Christians in North and South Korea to be united - John 17:21

9. Right thinking and decisions for Trump - II Corinthians 10:4-5

10. Ending the worship of the Kim family as demi-gods - Exodus 20:2

11. Opening heavens and releasing angelic armies - Revelation 19:11-14

12. World mission and evangelism to come out of Korea - I Timothy 2:4

13. International community moved closer to true peace - Isaiah 2:1-4

This is an urgent moment of intercession for all who desire righteousness. Let's pray now, pray hard (James 5:17), pray in agreement (Matthew 18:19), and pray with authority (Ephesians 2:6).
