Hyogo is home to Kobe, the sixth largest city in Japan. Because of its thriving port, there has been substantial exposure to foreign influences, which has shaped the culture of its urban center.
However, the rural communities are still grounded in older tradition and don't have much exposure to the Gospel of Christ.
The 1995 Great Hanshin Earthquake killed around 6,500 people and destroyed much of Kobe. It was one of the worst earthquake disasters in Japanese history and many lives are still effected by it today.
Please pray for:
"Then you will see and be radiant, And your heart will thrill and rejoice;
Because the abundance of the sea will be turned to you, The wealth of the nations will come to you.. And I shall glorify My glorious house
The year 2022 will come to an end in a few short days, and I look forward to building a new era with you in 2023.
Let us pray that this ministry, which started this fall, will be further spread throughout Japan and the world.
Pray that next year all time zones will be covered with prayer for Japan.
May many people experience the power of prayer.
May the churches increase their trust in God and raise up more humble people to pray.
That all generations will be excited in prayer.
Through prayer, may great works be expressed, and may a more prayerful people be aroused.
By installing a smartphone app called Echo, you will be able to use various functions that help you pray, such as reminder notifications.
