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.
Spirit of the Living God,
you go ahead of me to show me the way.
You are behind me,
nudging me toward the path that is right.
You watch over and protect me.
You are beside me every step of the way.
And you dwell within me,
reminding me each and every day
of your love for me
that is beyond my wildest imagination.
I ask that you would break through in my life,
that more and more, I would be awake
to your Spirit of wisdom and power,
and that I would be bold enough to follow
where you are leading.
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!
