30 ways to

pray for Japan

It has been almost 500 years since the name of Jesus was first proclaimed in Japan. Since then, the Japanese church has persevered through long periods of persecution and hardship. Today, less than one percent of Japan's population is Christian.

Look with your eyes, and hear with your ears, and set your heart upon all that I shall show you…

Ezekiel 40:4

Invitation to prayer

We've created this website based on the Beneath the Surface prayer guide to take you deeper into 30 priority prayer topics for God's work in Japan.

We pray that there is something on this website that God wants you to see, hear, or set your heart on. And we invite you to respond in faith. Will you join us in praying for Japan's spiritual breakthrough?
