PRAYER

Prayer opens our hearts to the power of God’s love. Prayer is how we become channels of God’s love for the world. Prayer is a gift from God – He wants to hear from us!
Pray for Others – If you would like to be part of Christ Church’s prayer chain and receive emails with prayer requests from our congregation, please contact Karen Smith.
 
The Prayer Tree is located in The Commons and a part of the Prayer Ministry. Complete a prayer “leaf” and it will be prayed over by the church.
 
To submit a prayer request, you may send an email message to prayer@cc-um.org. If you would prefer a more private prayer request, you can fill out the form below or contact Dr. Marc Donaldson.

On Eagles’ Wings

“’I carried you on eagles’ wings and brought you to myself.’” – Exodus 19:4 NIV
 
God, I need You to lift me up, above all these problems, above my circumstances, above my helplessness. Carry me off to Your place in the heavenlies, where I can find my breath, where I can sit with You, where I can find the peace of Your presence. You alone can carry me through this. I feel Your strong arms holding me close. Thank You, Lord, for saving my soul. Amen.

Consistent Love

A friend loveth at all times. – Proverbs 17:17 KJV
 
All I need is love! That’s all I need from my friends right now—people who care about me, who want what’s best for me, who will never turn away. But when I look at my life, I wonder if I’ve always loved my friends. I mean that constant, undying, unyielding love—the kind that You show for us. Forgive me, Lord, for the times I have fallen short–for times that I was so caught up in the busyness of my day that I did not show love to a friend who really needed it. Lord, fill me and my friends with your love and help us to let it flow freely to all we meet. Amen.
