Join us in daily prayer at 3pm (or whenever it fits your schedule), that God would break through with new vision and possibilities in our personal lives and in our church, beyond what we can imagine. Wherever you are at 3pm, whatever you’re doing, we invite you to stop for a minute if you can and pray this prayer.
If you do social media, post a photo of your prayer card and where you were when you prayed, what you were doing, using the hashtags #GodPossibilities and #HUMC. (This will just help us find and gather your photos.)
We chose 3pm because of what we read in Acts 10:30 – “Cornelius replied, ‘Four days ago at this very hour, at three o’clock, I was praying in my house when suddenly a man in dazzling clothes stood before me.'” (New Revised Standard Version [NRSV])
Gracious and loving God,
You have called us to be your disciples,
to live good and beautiful lives
reflective of the Spirit alive in us.
We ask that you would break through in our lives…
that we might be open and receptive to your outpouring love…
that we might see YOUR reflection in the mirror…
that we might hear your word in our daily practice,
and that we might understand where you are leading us
on this journey as disciples.
Give us courage to enact your love each day
as we share it abundantly with the world around us.
In the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit,
