Day 4

Japan, East Asia
God provides direction. Today we pray for every pastor and church worker across Japan who is seeking God for direction for 2021.

Many are asking how to do ministry and church life during the COVID-19 pandemic and are wondering how best to spread the Gospel in Japan.

Pray that the Lord will clearly lead and guide. Pray that creative ideas will be released this month as we pray.

Pray that churches in Japan will be courageous to try new ideas, and not hang on to tradition or ways of worship and evangelism that perhaps used to be effective in the past, but no longer adequately address the needs of Japanese people (The Bible, Proverb 20:24).

We declare peace and prosperity of God over Guinea-Bissau as the United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres reaffirmed the Organization’s commitment to the people of the country to have a strong partnership with the United Nation’s system.

We pray that peace, stability, and development in Guinea-Bissau will become a reality through the implementation of urgent reforms.

We thank God that Portugal has signed a new strategic cooperation program worth €60 million, which will run until 2025 with Guinea-Bissau in accordance with Guinea-Bissau's development goals and priorities" and will cover projects in the areas of education and culture, justice, security and defense, health, social affairs and labor, agriculture, fisheries, energy and environment, infrastructure, economy and finance.

We bless Guinea-Bissau with a better future with the people opening their hearts to the love of God (The Bible, Psalm 36:7)).
