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.

Loving God, in this moment,
I seek to create space
for you and your presence
to break through in my life.

*pause*

I release my thoughts to you.
*take 3-5 slow, deep breaths*

I release the emotions I am holding.
*take 3-5 slow, deep breaths*

I notice my body and am present to it.
*take 3-5 slow, deep breaths*

This is my offering to you.
Give me the courage to say YES
to your invitation in my life today.
Amen.

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!
