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.

Commitment

Commit your way to the LORD; trust in Him, and He will act, making your righteousness shine like the dawn, your justice like the noonday. – Psalm 37:5-6 HCSB

 

Dear God, commitment can be a little frightening. I often struggle with believing I can stay the course and fulfill my obligations, knowing life has a way of throwing roadblocks in my way. Help me trust that You will always make a way when my heart is steadfast in my goal to live in the center of Your will. Amen.

Comfort

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. – 2 Corinthians 1:3-4 NKJV

 

Gracious Father, help me seek and rely on the true comfort of Your Holy Spirit, remembering that You have provided all I need when my heart is overwhelmed. Help me run only to You when I need consolation and the kind of compassion that You offer. Help me to be a warm, soft comforting presence for those who need me. Amen.
