Day 11 Suicide and Professional Counseling

In a society that also has chosen to teach its children the belief in a chance-born impersonal universe and whose educational system’s testing process allows students one-chance opportunities on “the ladder of success”, there is no surprise that Japan has one of the highest suicide rates in the world.  More than 32,000 Japanese took their God-given lives in 2005 which is almost five times higher than the nation’s death toll in traffic accidents.  Japanese are even meeting on the internet and committing group suicide.  Pray that God would connect his people in Shimonoseki with those who are considering suicide (usually men in their 50s znc young people in their 20s and 30s).  Pray that God would raise up a team of Christian professional certified counselors that would have a clinic in the Shimonoseki area as a ministry of the church and would work hand-in-hand with the church in Shimonoseki.  The potential to touch many hurting lives is great.
