Multiplication

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 22:28 “For kingship belongs to the Lord, and he rules over the peoples.”

Lord, you reign! You rule! You are the rightful Lord. Today, we declare over the Middle East/North Africa: there is no king but King Jesus.

Today’s Movement Theme: MULTIPLICATION

In order for any nation to be reached, church growth must outpace population growth.

Right now, 1 out of 3 persons on the earth does not have access to the gospel. One out of three! In 1985, there were 3.2 billion lost souls. In 2019, the best estimate is over 5.5 billion. The stark truth is this: evangelism of unreached peoples is not keeping pace with population growth, AND THIS IS TRUE IN THE MIDDLE EAST AND NORTH AFRICA.

We need something different, something fresh.

And God is already doing it: gospel movements. In the past 25 years, the phenomenon called ‘church planting movements’ have dramatically increased, and movements are now present on every continent.

To become a ‘movement,’ new churches in multiple streams must be reaching 4+ generations deep. At minimum, 100s of churches will be represented, usually 1,000s. In other words: disciple making movements require multiplication!

For this region to have ‘no place left’ that is unreached, we need to see around 1,400,000 churches planted. The only way this will happen is multiplication.


Pray the Scripture

2 Tim 2:2You 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.

  1. Ask: for the grace of multiplication. May leaders make other leaders, and groups start other groups.
  2. Ask: for trustworthy men and women to be identified and entrusted with the gospel message.
  3. Ask: for the gift of reproducibility: in evangelism, in discipleship, and in church structures

Acts 19:10This took place for two years, so that all who lived in Asia heard the word of the Lord, both Jews and Greeks.

  1. Ask: for multiplication and spread like we see in the book of Acts. Millions of people heard in two years!
  2. Ask: that all peoples in all areas of the region would hear the word of the Lord

John 17:20 “I am praying not only for these disciples but also for all who will ever believe in me through their message.”

  1. Ask: for disciples to share with and make other disciples
  2. Ask: for the message of Christ to spread powerfully and rapidly

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 for Iraq and their major ethnic and religious groups:

Arab Shia (southern Iraq), Arab Sunni (central Iraq), Kurdish Sunni (northern Iraq), Iraqi Turkmen Sunni/Shia (north and central Iraq)

Prayer

Father, we pray that the peoples of Iraq will learn to study the Bible, understand it, obey it, and share it quickly with others. Will you grant this nation the grace of multiplication: disciples who make disciples, groups that start groups, and churches that plant churches. May your glory and fame spread throughout Iraq–and the entire Middle East–as Iraqi followers of Jesus love God by obeying his commands. Lord: may they go into all Arab countries, bringing the life-changing presence, love, and power of God with them.


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)?
