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.

Prayer for Healing

Is anyone among you sick? Then he must call for the elders of the church and they are to pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord; and the prayer offered in faith will restore the one who is sick. – James 5:14-15 NASB
 
Lord, I don’t feel well. You know what is attacking my body. You can see everything. I ask you in prayer, right now, to fill me with your healing power. Banish the sickness from my body. Fill me with Your presence. Draw me unto You and let me feel your healing touch. Amen.

Finding Your Gift

Don’t act thoughtlessly, but understand what the Lord wants you to do. – Ephesians 5:17 NLT
 
Lord, I’m looking for direction. I’m not sure how You want me to serve You. So many times I feel so inadequate, that others can do things better than I ever could. But I know those feelings are not of You. Help me to understand, Lord, how You want me to serve, what You want me to do. Not worrying about pleasing others but pleasing You, I will do so all to Your glory. Amen.
