Prayer Behind Movements

We are amazed by the speed and breadth of the spread of the gospel during the lifetimes of Jesus and Paul. There are six large movements of Messianic believer groups in the New Testament, with estimates of between 1,000 and 30,000 believers each: Jerusalem, the provinces of Judea and Samaria, Antioch, the province of Galatia, the province of Macedonia, and the province of Asia Minor from Ephesus. This book describes all the prayers of the New Testament in their support of these six movements.

Prayer undergirds Messianic Movements. Biblical prayers are large prayers for God’s kingdom over obstacles. From prison Paul does disciple-making through his prayers. When the early church was threatened and afraid, they asked for and received boldness and clarity in spreading the gospel.

Disciple-making movements are growing in many places around the world. Catalysts who lead these movements are amazed at what God is doing. They are deeply committed to prayer, convinced that God is the Mover of Movements. They pray with surprising faith, expecting God to act. Will you partner with them by using these biblical prayers to guide your prayers, so that Messianic Movements multiply?
