3pm Daily Prayer

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.

During our summer Signs of Hope message series, we’ll be praying the same Breakthrough Prayer as our partner church in ministry, Living Tree Church, a new church start here in Columbus, led by Pastor F. Willis Johnson. We will welcome Pastor Willis to our pulpit on July 7.

BREAKTHROUGH Prayer

God and Source of ALL,
Seed into the earth and YOUR
people divine purpose.
Connect our respective roots
deeply into YOU and one another in
unconditional love and mutual aid.
Empower us to grow in understanding and sharing of
YOUR word, witness, and will with
our everyday ordinary lives.
Sustain and strengthen us through
the process of becoming… moving
from surviving to thriving in the
promises of YOU!

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]) Jesus dies on the cross at 3pm (Luke 23:44-46). In Acts 3:1-11, Peter and John go to the temple to pray at 3pm, and while there Peter heals a disabled beggar. Important things happen at 3pm in the Bible!
