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.

Hope

There is a future, and your hope will not be cut off. – Proverbs 12:18 NRSV

 Dear Lord, help me remember that because of You and through You, hope always exists. Even in the hard places of my life when I’m feeling desperate, I’m believing that Your empowering hope will rise up in me. Though unseen, hope is always near because of Your Spirit that dwells in me. You are always listening, always caring, and always steadying my heart and my steps. Amen.

Dishonesty

If you do the right thing, honesty will be your guide – Proverbs 11:3 CEV
 
Lord in heaven, it hurts to know someone I care about has failed to be honest with me. I feel dishonored and betrayed. This is how You must feel when I’m not honest with You. Help me guard my tongue against dishonesty in every form—words, thoughts, and actions. And help me forgive the dishonesty in others as You have forgiven the dishonesty in me. Amen.
