An archipelago of 6,852 islands, Japan has the world’s third largest economy and is a major donor for world crises. This year, Japan’s emperor abdicated making room for his son, Naruhito. A strong traditional core has been flanked by a progressive younger generation valuing Western culture and ideas. Japan suffers from a high suicide rate, the leading cause of death for those under 30. Fewer than two percent are Christian; it is still one of the world’s most secular nations. Seventy percent of Japanese identify with no personal religion, although most adhere to Shinto and Buddhist customs.

Praise Report
Praise God for numerous testimonies of people coming to faith through the ministry of churches across Japan (The Bible, 2 Corinthians 5:17).

Prayer Requests
There are many rural parts of Japan that have no church presence at all. Pray that urban churches will receive a heart to reach out to the surrounding rural areas, planting daughter churches (The Bible, Acts 20:24).
Pray for the new Emperor Naruhito and his family. Pray that they may find salvation in Jesus Christ. Pray that they may bring in a fresh and younger approach to the traditions of the nation (The Bible, Psalm 71:5).

Call to Salvation
We declare over this nation that Jesus is the way, truth and life. We speak out God’s abundant life that brings hope, security and peace that the Japanese so desperately need (The Bible, John 14:6).
