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.

Debt

“Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.” – Matthew 6:12 NRSV

 

Heavenly Father, help me find a way to resolve the burden of debt that is consuming my life. Where I see no way, guide me to a resolution. I want to be a good steward of everything that passes through my hands, Father. I believe every good and perfect gift is from You, my source of all blessing. Guide my steps as I set goals and priorities for settling and balancing my finances. Amen.

Criticism

Whoever heeds life-giving correction will be at home among the wise. – Proverbs 15:31 NIV

 

Dear God, as much as possible, I try to guard my heart against the temptation to be a critical person—but there are moments, I admit, when I give in to negative and judgmental thinking. This is not who I want to be. Help me have an attitude of grace and redirect my observations of others to focus on what is good. Help me develop a more positive and merciful attitude. Amen.
