What is a gospel movement?

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.


Declare a Promise

Psalm 72:11 “May all kings fall down before him, and may all the nations serve him!”

Lord, we declare today that every ruler and authority, every ‘king’ and ‘queen’, every billionaire and millionaire, and every politician and influencer: all will fall before you and declare that Jesus is Christ and Lord. Today, over the Middle East and North Africa, we let this declaration ring out: all will bow down before him. From every corner. From every neighborhood. From every class. From every background. We prophesy, Lord, that this region will fall before you and serve you in glad worship and full obedience. What was crooked will be straight; what was low will be lifted; what was lost will be found; and what was dead….

Lord, by your word and your word alone

What was dead will come back to life.

Today, we speak: Live! In the name of Jesus, Live!


Today’s Movement Themes: WWW

  1. Word of God Spreading Rapidly
  2. Wonders to Confirm the Preaching of God’s Word
  3. Workers for the Harvest Fields

A recommended song as you pray through these themes: The Fields Have All Turned White


Word of God Spreading Rapidly

Ask that God’s word would spread rapidly, being honored wherever the word of God is shared. Pray that a sense of urgency would come upon believers, old and new alike, to share this gospel of the Kingdom with all. As the Samaritan woman in John 4 quickly shared with her village and introduced them to Jesus, Lord: may new people of peace spread your gospel message to new communities, and may this happen now, during this month, during Ramadan.

Pray that leaders would find other leaders who would be able to pass on what they have received to still others. In this way, Jesus’ prayer in John 17 would be fulfilled: I am praying not only for these disciples but for all who will ever believe in me through their message.

Scriptures to Pray

2 Thes 3:1Pray that the Lord’s message will spread rapidly and be honored wherever it goes, just as when it came to you.

2 Tim 2:2 “You have heard me teach things that have been confirmed by many reliable witnesses. Now teach these truths to other trustworthy people who will be able to pass them on to others.”


Wonders to Confirm the Preaching of God’s Word

Intercede on behalf of Christ’s followers in the region, that their testimony about Jesus would be confirmed by God’s power working through miraculous signs and wonders. Lord, we need your power, not just our words! We need your living power, the same power that conquered the grave and raised Christ Jesus from the dead, the same power that delivered God’s people out from the clutches of Pharaoh’s brick-laying, back-breaking empire, the same power that created all that we see and all that we don’t: this power, this life force, cannot be denied! Holy Spirit of God, when your people pray, come in power; when they preach the word, come in power; when they face opposition, come in power; when they feel weak, come in power; when they stand before crowds, come in power; when they weep with the lonely, come in power; when they fast, come in power; and when they live and love, surround them at all times by your confirming, world-changing power.

Scriptures to Pray

Acts 2:43A deep sense of awe came over them all, and the apostles performed many miraculous signs and wonders.

Mark 16:17-20These miraculous signs will accompany those who believe: They will cast out demons in my name, and they will speak in new languages. They will be able to handle snakes with safety, and if they drink anything poisonous, it won’t hurt them. They will be able to place their hands on the sick, and they will be healed.” When the Lord Jesus had finished talking with them, he was taken up into heaven and sat down in the place of honor at God’s right hand. And the disciples went everywhere and preached, and the Lord worked through them, confirming what they said by many miraculous signs.

Rom 15:19 “By the power of signs and wonders, and by the power of God’s Spirit, thus I have fully preached the gospel of the Anointed.”


Workers for the Harvest

Ask that Jesus, the Lord of the Harvest, would release more workers into his fields. And pray that these workers would come from the harvest. We need more Lebanese, Iraqi, Tunisian, Syrian, and Bahraini workers: for the Shiites, we need Shiites. For the Sunnis, we need Sunnis. Pray that workers from the same background as the harvest would be sent into the fields to sow and to reap, and ask that laughter would be granted to the sower as well as great joy for the reaper. Amen!

Scriptures to Pray

Luke 10:2-12These were his instructions to them: “The harvest is great, but the workers are few. So pray to the Lord who is in charge of the harvest; ask him to send more workers into his fields. Now go, and remember that I am sending you out as lambs among wolves.

John 4:35-36You know the saying, ‘Four months between planting and harvest.’ But I say, wake up and look around. The fields are already ripe for harvest. The harvesters are paid good wages, and the fruit they harvest is people brought to eternal life. What joy awaits both the planter and the harvester alike!” 


No Place Left

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, pray by name for Shiite Iraqis, the largest (nearly 60% of Iraq) and possibly least reached segment of society.

Key Cities: Baghdad, Najaf, Karbala, Basra, and Nasiriya


Prayer

Father, hear our cries. Rend the heavens and come down. Your arm, O Mighty One, is not too short that it cannot save. Rise, O Mighty One, to show compassion. A bruised reed you never break, and a smoldering wick you never snuff out. O Father! Iraq is bruised, and Iraq is smoldering. Lord have mercy; Christ have mercy. Come and do miracles today in southern Iraq. Raise the dead. Save the nation. Spread your fame. Transform this people. Recreate us.

Amen


More Information About the Grove and Ongoing Prayer Needs


What is the Grove?

The Grove is a learning and implementation community of 23 intentional kingdom workers from 7 different nationalities serving in 8 strategic nations within the Middle East and North Africa. We have intentionally banded together for 2023-2024 to learn, grow, experiment, pray, and serve together.

What does a learning and implementation community do?

  • Learning:
    • 3 face to face trainings over the 2 years
    • 1-2 ongoing learning meetings monthly
  • Implementation:
    • We put into practice our learning right away in our individual contexts
    • We band together in cohorts to support each other in implementation
    • We are intentionally experimenting together and sharing our experiences and learning

How can I be praying for the Grove aside from the daily Prayer Fuel?

  • For the participants to grow together in unity and fruitfulness
  • That participants would continue to develop their authentic personal witness
  • For new and creative ideas to share within natural social groupings rather than just individuals

Praying as a group?


Leading others in prayer is a great step in making disciples. We want to celebrate your and their faithfulness. For each person that prays with you, we will add 15 minutes to the 8.3 days of prayer committed so far.

How many prayed today (including yourself)?
