Praise that Japanese convenience stores are eliminating porn prior to Tokyo 2020


Lord, today we are encouraged by the good news that convenience stores in Japan plan to stop offering pornography by the time the 2020 Olympic Games begin in Tokyo. We pray that other outlets will also follow suit, and that these businesses will actually benefit from no longer offering such a detrimental product. Heavenly Father, we pray that Japan’s government, businesses and community groups will take additional measures to keep the Olympics an edifying experience. We particularly pray that the nation will be proactive in keeping sex trafficking away from the events as much as possible. May this global event move away from vice and toward its purpose of unifying the world and educating youth through healthy competition. In Jesus’ name we pray, amen.
