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.

Thirsty

“For I will pour out water to quench your thirst and to irrigate your parched fields. And I will pour out my Spirit on your descendants, and my blessing on your children.” – Isaiah 44:3 NLT   Lord, I am thirsty, parched with the demands of this world. I am in want in so many ways. Help me not to focus on what I don’t have, but to focus on You and the blessings that You have prepared for me and my children. Pour out Your Spirit upon me now. Fill me with Your presence. Give me hope for this day. I anticipate blessings waiting around every corner. Thank You, Lord. Amen.   [from Prayers with Purpose by Donna Maltese]

Let It Be

Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths. – Proverbs 3:5-6 NKJV
 
I acknowledge that You are in control of everything, Lord, and that the things You want me to accomplish today will get done. I want to walk in Your will and not in mine. I want to lean on Your Word and take Your paths. I can only do that by putting my total trust in You as I go through this day. Lord, help me to accomplish what You want me to do today and let the rest be. Amen.
