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.

Burdens

Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ. – Galatians 6:2 NIV

 

Dear God, every area of my life is challenging my faith and my emotional stamina. One problem seems to compound another. The burdens that are weighing down my spirit are too heavy to keep carrying. Help me lay each and every concern at Your feet once and for all, God. As I and place them there, help me also leave them there and trust them to Your care. Amen.

Blessings

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places. – Ephesians 1:3 NRSV

 

Dear Lord Jesus, help me show my thankfulness to You by being a blessing to others. I’m aware that I often miss opportunities because I’m too busy with my own concerns. I would ask You to show me how to make time for encouraging words, generous giving, and kind actions that truly bless others. In this way, I pray that I will also bless You. Amen.
