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.

Aging

“To your old age and gray hairs I am he, I am he who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you.” – Isaiah 46:4 NIV

 

Lord, I do feel old today. I am aging so steadily and can’t do half the things I used to be able to do. I find myself with time but no strength or energy. Help me settle into this new season of life. Help me stay vigilant about my health so that I can enjoy all the years You’ve given me. Amen.

Affliction

Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the LORD delivers him out of them all. – Psalm 34:19 NKJV

 

Father God, show me how to reach out to the afflicted around me. Let my hands be Your hands of healing and comfort. Let my words deliver a sense of Your love and care. You also were afflicted. You also felt the intense pain of betrayal. Help those who find themselves in the midst of affliction. Amen.
