Movements Prayer Journal: June-August 2018

In one Midwest town, a few pastors have banded together to make a difference. Their common ground is Christ’s Great Commission. Their plan is built around prayer and making a difference – together. These pastors have crossed denominational lines in the common cause of reaching their city with the gospel.

Movements Prayer Journal: April-May 2018

  Cru staff members, associates, volunteers and partners are asking God to bring about a supernatural two-part goal: 10 million Christ-centered, multiplying disciples and 5 million new churches or faith communities, both by the end of the year 2020!

They are […]

Movements Prayer Journal: January – March 2018

This first Movements Prayer Journal of the year features a prayer for God to mold our priorities. We are asking God to use us to mobilize additional workers in His global harvest.

Pray2020 and our first love. Faith goals are meant to stretch us – to make us trust the Lord in new ways, as we try new things.

Part of the resulting fruit is more people coming to know and follow Jesus. We are blessed to […]

Movements Prayer Journal: October-December 2016

Intimacy with God is key to a fruitful life and effective, “self-sustaining” movements. That vital intimacy thrives in a culture of prayer. While this issue of Movements Prayer Journal encourages us to ask the Lord to MULTIPLY our lives and MOBILIZE laborers for the Great Commission, once again it reminds us that, first and foremost, we need Him to MOLD our hearts to be like His.  

Movements Prayer Journal: August-September 2016

In spring of 2015, two missionaries were discussing just what it might take for “every nation and every tribe” to be reached for Christ. One thing they readily agreed upon. Prayer–strategic, united, persistent prayer–is key to fulfilling what has become known as the Great Commission.
