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.

Shepherd

The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures; he leads me beside still waters; he restores my soul. He leads me in right paths for his name’s sake. – Psalm 23:1-3

Dear Lord, I need you to shepherd me through my life. I know how easily I can go astray, and I know I need your rod and staff to keep me headed in the right direction. I don’t even know what the right direction is, but I trust you to lead me. Green pastures, still waters—I am grateful for the blissful moments you provide, but most of all I thank you for your presence beside me, helping me find my way. With your guidance, I will live each day “for your name’s sake.” Amen.

Joy

You have turned my mourning into dancing; you have taken off my sackcloth and clothed me with joy, so that my soul may praise you and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give thanks to you forever. – Psalm 30:11-12

Beloved Lord, You know the struggles I have had lately, but you have brought me through them. Distress has been turned to resilience. Worry has transformed into faith. For a while, I was focusing on my own misfortune, but now you have placed joy in my heart. I feel that I know you better than ever. Thank you for staying beside me in tough times. Lead me forward into better times. Amen.
