Praying Daniel 9:19 for Japan

August 24, 2020

O Lord, hear! O Lord, forgive! O Lord, listen and act! Do not delay for Your own sake, my God, for Your city and Your people are called by Your name. -Daniel 9:19

Spiritual breakthrough. That’s what we’re praying for today in Japan, where Thru the Bible is heard on a small number of FM radio stations. But this is no small job. Most Japanese have never heard about Jesus and have never met a Christian.

Prayer team—as we make our way through Japan’s cities and small villages, pray for the majority of Japanese who do not consider themselves religious, but practice a mix of Buddhist, Shinto, Daoist, Confucian, Atheistic, and even Christian beliefs.

Pray also for the few Christians here (less than 1% know Jesus as their Savior). Through them, may neighbors, friends, and family members see the light of Christ and develop an interest in a real and lasting relationship with the Creator of the universe, who wants to be the Shepherd of their hearts.

Our worldwide prayer journey continues tomorrow in Hong Kong. Join us for an update from Thru the Bible’s president, Gregg Harris.
