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.

Courage

Be on your guard, stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong. – 1 Corinthians 16:13 NIV

 

Dear Lord, I’m facing a situation that seems to be impossible to conquer. Fear has overtaken the courage I need to fight this giant. I know, just as David faced Goliath, my trust in You must be bigger than my fear. Your Word assures me that You are not only with me in every battle that I face, but that the battle belongs to You. Help me remember that I can do all things because You are my strength and my shield. Give me the courage to lay fear aside and fight as an overcomer. Amen.

Conscience

Pray for us, for we are sure that we have a good conscience, desiring to conduct ourselves honorably in all things. – Hebrews 13:18 NASB

 

Dear God, when it might have been easier to let something that was wrong slide, You quickened my spirit and my conscience to take the high road. I’m so thankful I listened, heeded, and asked for Your guidance instead of relying on my own way of thinking. Thank You for giving me a conscience that helps ensure all will be well in my soul. Amen.
