Tunisia 7 - The 7 Year Covenant of HUB (Humble, United and Bold) Prayer The prayer 
movement, Awake Tunisia 1999, saw an awakening of the Tunisian church. The church 
grew significantly and now numbers several hundred believers. The Holy Spirit has given 
the church in Tunisia a burden to persevere in prayer for the glory of Christ in this land and 
to see this seed grow into a mature and flourishing church once again. Our aim is to see 
continual and persevering prayer for Tunisia inside the country and around the world, 
creating a 'wall of watchfulness' around the growing church of Tunisia. Info pack, "Face to 
Face" video and contact details of a 'Tunisia 7' coordinator in your region available.
