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.

Perseverance

May the Lord direct your hearts into God’s love and Christ’s perseverance. – 2 Thessalonians 3:5 NIV

Precious Lord, each day You help me run my race and keep me moving forward. Even when I think I can’t take one more step of faith or endure one more challenging circumstance, You infuse me with strength that is not my own. You help me keep believing and moving forward. Thank You for the spirit of perseverance You’ve given me. Use it to sustain me through every challenge. Amen.

Persecution

“In the world you face persecution. But take courage; I have conquered the world!” – John 16:33 NRSV

Lord Jesus, persecution hasn’t touched my life—at least not directly. I’ve never been mistreated because of my faith or beliefs. For this I’m thankful. But I’m aware that across the world, scores of people are targeted for abuse and even death because they dare to stand for what is right. I commit to support them with my prayers. I pray that You would comfort, strengthen and protect them. Amen.
