Asbury's Round-The-Clock Prayer Vigil: February 22nd-27th

Join Your Asbury Family in Prayer

The United Methodist Church will meet in St. Louis for the General Conference 2019. During this very important time, we are committing ourselves to praying round-the-clock for the conference, attendees and our future. 

We are asking for volunteers -- adults, youth and children -- to sign up for a 30-minute time throughout the 6 days of the General Conference. Below you will find information to help guide you through your time of prayer. We know that our HOPE is only found in Christ. Let's lift our Church and Denomination to Christ in Prayer!

Want to Pray?

If you would like to pray, please email Sarah (  with your preferred 30-minute block of time from February 22nd-27th. You may take as many timeslots as you would like. Sign-up sheets will also be available in the Foyer on Sunday mornings.

Wesleyan Covenantal Prayer: Pray on Behalf on Asbury and the United Methodist Church

I am no longer my own but yours. Put me to what you will, rank me with whom you will; put me to doing, put me to suffering; let me be employed for you, or laid aside for you, exalted for you, or brought low for you; let me be full, let me be empty, let me have all things, let me have nothing: I freely and wholeheartedly yield all things to your pleasure and disposal. And now, glorious and blessed God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, you are mine and I am yours. And the covenant now made on earth, let it be ratified in heaven. Amen.
