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 fill out the form below or contact Dr. Marc Donaldson.

Endurance

May you be strengthened with all power, according to His glorious might, for all endurance and patience, with joy. – Colossians 1:11 HCSB

Heavenly Father, the race I must run certainly has become a battle with weariness. Coach me onward, Father, and give me the strength to persevere, to push through and press on. When quitting seems easier than pursuing, keep me focused on the reward that comes from accepting and appreciating Your ultimate plan. Amen.

Encouragement

Brothers, rejoice. Become mature, be encouraged, be of the same mind, be at peace, and the God of love and peace will be with you. – 2 Corinthians 13:11 HCSB

Lord Jesus, how powerful a small word becomes when it settles into the soul of another—just a “hello,” a “bless you,” or a “thank you” gives strength. A sentence written in a card or note has encouraged me and helped me go on. May I be the bearer of encouragement to others—those who need a smile and a kind word. May I be willing to pitch in and help or share someone’s burden. Amen.
