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.

God Knows My Coworker’s Heart

“Then hear from heaven Your dwelling place, and forgive, and render to each according to all his ways, whose heart You know for You alone know the hearts of the sons of men.” – 2 Chronicles 6:30 NASB
 
Lord, You can see into everyone’s heart. You know the good and the bad in all of us. Right now, I feel as if my coworker has inflicted only his “bad” upon me. Yet perhaps other things are going on in his life that I cannot see and do not know. Please, Lord, help me to forgive him as You forgive me. And when I see him today, give me peace in my heart, the right words to say, and a loving attitude. Amen.

My Purpose

The LORD has made everything for its purpose. – Proverbs 16:4 NRSV
 
Lord, what am I supposed to do? I’m not sure why I’m at this job. Or am I not to have a career but be a stay-at-home parent? Have I made the wrong decision? Am I walking in Your will or have I been led by my own desires? Show me, Lord, which way You want me to go. If there is some new challenge You want me to undertake, please tell me. Let me hear Your voice. Renew my mind this morning so that I can know Your good and perfect will for my life. Amen.
