Why Pray At 3pm Every Day?
In 1 Corinthians 12:26, Paul reminds us that we are part of the body of Christ, when one member suffers, we all suffer- when one part is lifted up, we all rejoice. As part of the body of Christ, it is vital that we stand united… and the best way to do that is through prayer. And a powerful way to pray is to unite in prayer at the time Jesus died for us at 3pm (known as the hour of mercy) in our local time zones. When we unite in prayer at this time, we know God will hear our prayers for peace and justice and He has the power to change the world, one soul at a time!
All over the world Christians are uniting at the time Jesus died for us at 3pm to remember the Passion of Christ as we stand at the foot of the Cross of Jesus as ONE Body of Christ praying for the many needs of our suffering world, especially our brothers and sisters in Christ who are being persecuted for their faith in Jesus.
It is also vital that we pray for those who are persecuting them. Jesus told us to “Love our enemies and pray for those who persecute you.” in Matthew 5:44
Throughout our time as an organization, we have seen the power of prayer… especially when Christians are united in prayer. This a great way to pray daily for the persecuted church and is uniting Christians of all denominations to not only remember the great sacrifice of Jesus, but pray for His mercy upon all souls, especially our persecuted brothers and sisters and those that persecute them.
