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.

Love the Lord

Hear, O Israel: The Lord is our God, the Lord alone. You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your might. – Deuteronomy 6:4-5

O God of heaven and earth! You are both the source and the object of my love. Your command to love you is a wonderful one, and I willingly say yes to it with a heart full of gladness today. Please grant that I might always love you wholeheartedly. You are worthy of all my devotion. Amen.

Grief

O my Comforter in sorrow, my heart is faint within me. – Jeremiah 8:18 NIV

Lord! O Lord! This heartache has swallowed me whole. I can’t find a place where I am ever apart from it. I feel so helpless and I don’t know where to find the will to take the next step. I know I need you more than ever, but I’m struggling to lift my heart to you. I just need you to be here. I need you to hold me together. I need you to hold me. Be my comfort, please, Lord. Soothe this soul of mine. Amen.
