History of Vision:
This summer we received insight and research from several of the largest and most effective house church planting movements around the world. They identified these 110 cities that are 'Ripe for the Harvest.' They shared with us,
“We have house church leaders, teams, and families ready to launch movements in these cities between 2022 – 2025.”
This is just the beginning, but these leaders sense it is time for coordinated disciple-making gospel movements in these cities. Some of these certainly have movements already advancing, however they sense it is time for massive multiplication and acceleration in these next 3 years. Working together with these movement leaders, we developed 5 prayer points for each city from on-the- ground teams, including the unreached language and people groups in each city, Bibles that need to be translated, and areas of remaining strongholds.
We will be tracking the measurable results of the number of disciples made, Bibles being translated and house churches planted in the next 3 years.
Through the IPC family of prayer networks, including other global prayer movements, we will focus our prayer strategy in 3 specific directions.
First, send prayer walking teams in 2022 to prayer-walk each of these cities, ‘praying on-site with insight.’ I attached our Prayer-Walk template for vision, simple training and follow-up reporting. We are working together with a key leader in each city to facilitate these prayer-walking teams.
Second, we want to invite the global body of Christ to join us in praying for these cities by name, 110 million people, praying 10 minutes a day, praying Scripture-fed, Spirit-led prayer grounded in Psalm 110! People can get access to the 5 prayer points per city through our website, the Canopy App, and prayer guides distributed as the Lord leads.
Would you consider sharing these prayer points with What’sApp/Signal groups, prayer rooms and house of prayers, digital prayer platforms, and your local church prayer ministries?
Third, establish 24/7 ‘Lighthouses’ of prayer and worship in each of these cities between 2022 -2025 as churches and families adopt consistent weekly or monthly days of prayer.
Malachi 1:11 (NKJV), “For from the rising of the sun, even to its going down, My name shall be great among the Gentiles; In every place incense shall be offered to My name, And a pure offering; For My name shall be great among the nations,” Says the Lord of hosts.“
Would you consider joining us and mobilizing prayer towards this end in 2022?! Let me know if you have further questions!
