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.

Expectations

Shall we not expect far greater glory in these days when the Holy Spirit is giving life? – 2 Corinthians 3:8 TLB

Dear Jesus, sometimes I’m afraid to believe in good outcomes, better days, and real solutions. If my expectations don’t happen as I hope they will, I desperately need the peace and assurance that You still have a plan for my situation. Jesus, in all circumstances of my life, help me remember that my greatest hope and expectation will always be found in You. Amen.

Eternal Life

But whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life. – John 4:14 NIV

Precious Lord, Your gift of eternal life changes the way I look at the trials and griefs I experience in this life. Knowing there’s so much more than this earthly life deepens and expands my vision to eternal hope and purpose. Because of eternity’s promise, I can live with heavenly expectation and joy. Amen.
