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.

Cleanse My Heart

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. – 1 John 1:9

 

Lord, I humbly ask for forgiveness of sin in my life. I repent and turn from doing wrong things. I don’t know why I do the things I don’t want to do. Sometimes it’s willful and sometimes I’m just careless. Thank You for Your lovingkindness and mercy that cleanse my soul and let me be in right standing with You again. Cleanse me, heal me, and make me whole, Lord. Amen.

Change Me, Lord

Yet, O LORD, you are our Father. We are the clay, you are the potter; we are all the work of your hand. – Isaiah 64:8

 

Lord, You know all about me—my past, my present, and my future. You are the potter and I am the clay, the work of Your hands. As You reshape my life, changing me from who I was and molding me into the person You want me to be, help me to trust Your wisdom. I want to be a vessel sturdy enough to hold all the love You have for me—and to pour that out on others.
