Dynamite Prayer for UMC is Conference-Wide Prayer Initiative

Dynamite Prayer - St. Matthew UMC Weston, WV


The United Methodist Church has announced a conference-wide prayer initiative titled “Dynamite Prayer” that will be taking place during the month of September. Every Wednesday in September at 7:00 p.m., beginning on Sept. 6, everyone is invited to help send prayers up to the Lord in an effort to help move from problem-focused prayer to possibility-focused prayer. This will be a 28-day prayer experience.

Dynamite Prayer Explained

God’s Spirit, God’s resurrection power, is always at work in the world, creating new possibilities and breathing new life into things. And God promises that, through Christ, we have access to this miraculous power. But how often do we actually live in this?

Most of us spend our prayer life looking inward and focused on our problems instead of looking up and out for the possibilities God has for us. We want something new, something fresh, something more, but we don’t know how to get there.

Breakthrough prayer is a simple, powerful process of surrendering what we know for the mystery of what God wants to reveal. In it, we discover we’re not responsible for finding the ideas or the solutions but rather trusting God to give us more than we could ever dream up on our own and following what emerges.
