MORE ABOUT THIS COUNTRY

Guinea-Bissau is one of the world’s poorest countries. It relies on revenues from raising a cashew crop to feed most families, and its economy depends greatly on foreign aid. Umaro Sissoco Embalo is the President of the Republic of Guinea-Bissau since 27 February 2020. Nuno Gomes Nabiam is the Prime Minister since 28 February 2020. Outside of the agricultural sector, the government struggles to pay its workers. There are suspicions that the country aids the Latin American cocaine trade as the narcotic reaches Europe. Freedom of religion exists in Guinea-Bissau; however, an animistic Islam dominates the greater culture, particularly in the north and east. Christianity sees greater success in the south and coastal regions. The country has the sixth highest mortality rate in the world. Illicit drug trafficking has grown almost unchecked, as the government has no coast guard, police have no cars available, and the navy has no boats for patrolling the North Atlantic shores.

Japan

PRAYER FOR THIS COUNTRY

We bless you, Japan, in Jesus’ Name, that He may speak loud and clear over Japan this year. Bless many ears and hearts to be open and able to discern the voice of the Shepherd calling to His lost sheep to come home to the Father.

 

Japan is a rapidly aging nation. Today we bless young people with a deep desire to know more about Jesus and how he can bring joy and satisfaction in life.

 

Bless the Church in Japan with fresh passion for missions in their own nation. Bless them with creative ways to connect with the community to share the Gospel.

 

Heavenly Father, we ask that you will revive Japan with your Gospel (The Bible, Psalm 80:18)

MORE ABOUT THIS COUNTRY

An archipelago of 6,852 islands, Japan has the world’s third-largest economy and is a major donor to world crises. Three-quarters of the nation’s population lives in big cities, together with one of the world’s most aging populations has resulted in specific needs in rural areas as young people all move to the cities in search of work. 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. This year Japan was rocked by the assassination of former prime minister, Shinzo Abe, during a campaign speech. The election was won by the new prime minister, Fumio Kishida.
