Japan is experiencing the worse outbreak of measles since 2008. 167 cases were reported in the first six weeks of the year. About a third of the reported cases were associated with members of Miroku Community Kyusei Shinkyo, a religious group that promotes alternative medicines and healing. Pray for good treatment for those who have measles. Pray that the outbreak will be contained and not continue to spread. Pray for protection over young children who are especially at risk of measles complications, such as hearing loss, pneumonia and encephalitis (The Bible, 1 Samuel 25:6).
