MORE ABOUT THIS COUNTRY

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. Guinea-Bissau is one of the world’s poorest countries, relying on revenues from raising a cashew crop to feed most families, and its economy depends greatly on foreign aid. 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.

Japan

PRAYER FOR THIS COUNTRY

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.

As the Church in Japan is also aging, bless them with the willingness to change in order to better accommodate the needs of the younger generations.

Japan has a very high suicide rate. Bless those who are feeling lost, empty and alone, that they may meet a Christian and be willing to open their hearts to receive the love of Jesus.

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 for world crises. Three-quarters of the nation’s population lives in big cities; this 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.
