Prayer Of Unlearning

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.

Here we are, Lord,
trying to face what lies ahead of us
with all the courage you have given us…

The stories and habits that have kept us stuck
are starting to lose their hold,
as you show us what love REALLY looks like.

So fill us with your fire, your strength, and your willingness
everything that keeps us from the pursuit of that love,
that my feet and my heart would follow the path you are revealing.

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!
