A church planting movement (CPM) or disciple making movement (DMM) can be defined as “the multiplication of disciples making disciples and leaders developing leaders, resulting in indigenous churches planting churches which begin to spread rapidly through a people group or population segment.” Click here to read more about gospel movements.
Psalm 22:27 “All the ends of the earth shall remember and turn to the Lord, and all the families of the nations shall worship before you.”
Declare: Lord, all the peoples will remember you! All the sects will turn to You. Every knee will bow and every tongue confess that You, the Christ, are Lord and Savior, the hope for this region!
Across church planting movements globally, we see a divine intervention, a kind of grace for repentance. When believers share, people respond. There is a softness of heart, an openness to the move of the Spirit. Unlike Pharaoh, who hardened his heart and stubbornly refused, people are ready to respond with soft hearts. In disciple making movements, apprentices of Jesus are able to share with friends, with family, with their natural communities, and God’s grace for repentance is present.
We pray for a gospel movement to transform these nations, let us cry out for God’s Kingdom to come, for a spirit of repentance to fall on the peoples living in this region: rich and poor, young and old, male and female.
Matthew 3:2 “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”
Acts 2:37, 38 “Peter’s words pierced their hearts, and they said to him and to the other apostles, “Brothers, what should we do?” Peter replied, “Each of you must repent of your sins and turn to God, and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. Then you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.”
Romans 2:4 “Don’t you see how wonderfully kind, tolerant, and patient God is with you? Does this mean nothing to you? Can’t you see that his kindness is intended to turn you from your sin?”
Each day, we pray for one of the countries the Grove represents, believing in faith that a disciple making movement will touch each and every community throughout these nations.
Today we pray for Tunisia
Key Cities: Tunis, Sfax, Sousse
Key Areas: North Coast, Southern Tunisia, Border areas with Algeria and Lybia
Lord: Soften hard hearts! Open deaf ears! Restore blind eyes! Where communities have hearts of stone, Lord, bring forth hearts of flesh. Have mercy! May you release a spirit of brokenness and contrition throughout the land; lead your people to grieve over injustice and sin; lead your children to search for another way. Father of kindness, have mercy. Christ, have mercy. And lead Tunisia to repent of its many sins.
