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.
Prayer of Purpose
you have declared who WE are.
You have called each of us
your beloved child.
You have empowered ME with your Spirit.
You have given ME a mission and purpose
to share your love with ALL the world.
In this New Year, WE ask that you would
break through in our lives,
individually and collectively.
Renew OUR sense of identity as your
beloved… no matter what.
Clarify the purposes for which you have
Grant US courage and boldness to step
into the future unafraid.
We pray this together in the powerful
name of Jesus,
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!
