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.

A New Attitude

Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” – Hebrews 13:5

 

Lord, at times I’m so affected by this world—I am tempted to want what others have or long for things that I see on television. Change my attitude, Lord. Help me to understand that acquiring more “stuff” won’t necessarily make me happy. Being filled with You brings true contentment. Teach me the joy and lasting satisfaction that comes from looking solely to You, Lord.

Working with Excellence

Commit to the LORD whatever you do, and your plans will succeed. – Proverbs 16:3

 

Lord, You give me work to do every day. Whether it’s at home or in the marketplace, help me to honor You in my efforts. I don’t want to be satisfied with mediocrity. I ask that You would empower me to do superior work and bring glory to Your name. Help me not to be a clock-watcher or time waster, but to find fulfillment in the tasks before me. Help me to be a person of excellence, integrity and good ideas in my place of employment.
