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.

Change

Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us give thanks, by which we offer to God an acceptable worship with reverence and awe. – Hebrews 12:28 NRSV

 

Things change. In my years on earth, heavenly Father, I have learned that well. Just when you think you’re holding onto something solid, it moves, it evaporates. Relationships shatter. Jobs get downsized. Fortunes get frittered away. If I put my trust in anything, I am risking disappointment . . . except in you. Your kingdom cannot be shaken. You are the supreme king forever, and I thank you for the mighty role you’ve played in my life. Amen.

My Plans

In their hearts humans plan their course, but the Lord establishes their steps. – Proverbs 16:9 NIV

 

Help me, dear Lord! I have tried to figure things out, and I can’t. I have tried to plan out my own life, and I haven’t done so well. I have tried to answer all the questions, explain all the mysteries, and solve all the equations, but I have come to the end of myself. So I’m back to basics, calling for your help. I need you in my life, Lord, and I can’t make that happen on my own. But I believe you can. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
