Keeping DPM in Prayer

January 22nd - 28th


January 22—Iraq/Iran

  • Pray for persecuted partners of DPM in underground churches in Iran and Iraq. Pray especially for Ali, a young ministry friend and businessman who led many people to the Lord and started several churches. His Muslim parents told the religious police about his activities, and he was recently sentenced to 28 years in an Iranian prison, leaving behind his fiancée.
  • Pray for the Church in Iraq, as well as Christians and ministries DPM supports here as the war rages in the north. Many Christians have considered returning to their homes in now liberated areas they had to leave in July 2014. But as it is still not very safe, they are hesitant to do so. 

January 23—France

  • Pray for the new book, Father God, to greatly impact many, especially young people.
  • Pray for the safe transport of French copies of Life-Changing Spiritual Power being shipped to various bookstores in Africa (12 bookstores in 12 countries) and that these books will help Christians mature in their faith and even impact their nations.
  • Pray for the new distribution system for Bible Schools through these bookstores to go smoothly. 


  • By the grace of God, we were able to finish another year in the black. God is truly faithful!

January 24—Poland

  • Pray for good health, strength, spiritual protection, and wisdom for Directors Marek and Agnieszka and all others who will be involved in DPM’s work in Poland in 2017.
  • Pray for successful distribution of the recently released book, Living as Salt and Light.
  • Pray that the hearts of Polish believers will be transformed by the Holy Spirit through God’s Word. 

January 25—Cambodia

  • Pray for God’s protection, wisdom and anointing for Director Annie Chen-Green, National Coordinator, Huy Ly, and the translation team.
  • Pray for local church partners who are training believers with Derek’s teaching material and that, through this training, many nationals will have a strong foundation in God’s Word.
  • Pray for the smooth printing of Extravagant Love and Authority and Power of God’s Word in the Khmer language and that these booklets will be a great blessing to many. 


  • We are having very good feedback from pastors who are using Derek’s books to teach from. 

January 26—Middle East

  • In December, 500 SD cards containing Derek’s teaching were distributed to Christians in Tunisia. Pray they will reach and impact all the right people, strengthening and equipping many.
  • Pray for Thomas and his meetings with church and ministry leaders in Kuwait—that they will look upon DPM favorably and utilize the resources offered to them for their ministries. 
  • A trial episode of an Arabic TV talk show, based on Derek's teaching, is in production. A new form of radio production is also being developed. Pray for God’s guidance for these and other projects in 2017. 


  • We are grateful for the near completion of our Arabic website (
  • Our new Arabic Facebook page ( has 8,835 followers, with many posts reaching hundreds of thousands of people. And we hope to reach many more! 

January 27—30x13 Project

  • Brief introductions and closes are being produced for each of Derek’s 30 messages used in this project. This will turn them from single messages into a study course with added outlines and questions that can be used by a student or group. Pray for the Lord’s anointing upon everyone involved.

January 28—Canada

  • Pray for the DPM–Canada board members to have clear direction for ministry in the coming year.
  • Pray that the Lord will open new doors of opportunity in 2017, including for ministry in prisons.
