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 contact Dr. Marc Donaldson.

Renew My Strength

He gives power to the weak, and to those who have no might He increases strength. – Isaiah 40:29 NKJV
 
I didn’t get half the thigs I needed to do accomplished yesterday, Lord. And today I feel as if I have no energy. Still I arise early and come here to spend time with You. Calm my nerves. Remind me that the world is not going to fall apart if I don’t accomplish everything on my to-do list today or even tomorrow, yet show me how to use my time wisely. Give my heart peace, and as I spend these moments with You, give me strength so that I may walk in Your power. Amen.

Never Alone

“I will never leave you nor forsake you.” – Joshua 1:5 NIV
 
Lord, Your Word says that You will never leave me, but right now I feel all alone. I am afraid of what lies before me. Help me to know that You are with me. With You by my side, I need not fear. Fill me with Your presence and Your courage as I greet this day. Amen.
