National Review reports that emperor worship could return to Japan because members of the Liberal Democratic Party achieved a two-thirds majority in the legislature and now have the votes necessary to amend the country’s constitution:

“The LDP’s draft for an amended constitution would eliminate the prohibition on imbuing religious organizations with ‘political authority,’ clearing the way for the return of state Shintoism and emperor worship.”

Prayer List

* Pray for the Gospel message to spread throughout Japan and to bear fruit through new conversions.
* Pray for Japan’s believers to grow in holiness and discernment.
* Pray for Japan’s ruling class to reject emperor worship and nationalistic legislation that will harm Christians.
