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.

Hospitality

Be quick to give a meal to the hungry, a bed to the homeless—cheerfully.  – 1 Peter 4:10 MSG

Father, open the doors of my house and also the doors of my heart. Help me show hospitality in my home, my life, my circumstances, my emotions—in all the places that I call mine. Help me hold the doors of my life wide and offer help, hope, and blessing to all You send my way. Cure me of selfishness, Lord. Amen.

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.
