Repentance

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 22:27 “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!


Today’s Movement Theme: REPENTANCE

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.


Pray the Scripture

Matthew 3:2 “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”

  1. Pray for the religious leaders: Mosque leaders, community leaders, teachers of religion in universities and community centers. Pray for a softness of heart among the religious leaders.
  2. Pray for the peoples of the Middle East to experience true repentance.
  3. Pray for repentance among the political elite of the Arab gulf; ask God to grant them a broken and contrite heart. May the leaders of these nations repent for their participation in injustice.

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.”

  1. Intercede for those sharing God’s good news, that their words would ‘pierce the heart’ of those who hear. May the response this month be: “What must we do to be saved?”
  2. Intercede for new communities to: (1) Repent, (2) Turn to God, (3) Be baptized, and (4) Be filled with 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?”

  1. Declare the loving kindness of God, that his mercies are new every morning, that his faithfulness is indeed great to North Africans.
  2. Declare that this year is the year of the Lord’s favor, that this month is the month of repentance, that this month is when God’s Kingdom is at hand.

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 we pray for Tunisia

Key Cities: Tunis, Sfax, Sousse

Key Areas: North Coast, Southern Tunisia, Border areas with Algeria and Lybia


PRAYER

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.

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)?
