The 12th CBMC Japan National Prayer Meeting
- March 15, 2012
Last week, CBMC International’s President, James Firnstahl wrote a note of encouragement to CBMC Japan Chairman Yoshiro Inoue:
Dear Fellow Brothers and Sisters in Christ:
I pray that God will encourage you as you pray today for your great country, Japan. We know that without a doubt, God loves the Japanese people and desires to see them reconciled to Himself through His Son, Jesus Christ.
May the Lord answer your prayers and grant you the desire of your heart, especially your desire to see Japanese business and professional leaders receive the gift of eternal life by faith in Christ.
God answers prayers, so be encouraged and keep praying!
Blessing to you all in Christ,
Jim and Emily Firnstahl
In response, we learned that CBMC Japan was holding a National Prayer Meeting to pray earnestly for their political leaders, for the Japanese economy and world economy, for the friendship and peace among countries in Asia and the whole world, for the repentance and evangelism of Japan, and for the continued suffering in East Japan, which was affected by the earthquake and tsunami.
Here is Chairman Yoshiro Inoue’s response:
