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.

God Is Faithful

The one who calls you is faithful and he will do it. – 1 Thessalonians 5:24

 

Lord, I thank You that You are my faithful God. No one else is like You. People move away, jobs change, and much of life is uncertain. But You are always here, my stable, loving, and present Lord. Help me to hold unswervingly to the hope I profess, for You alone are faithful. You keep all Your promises—every one of them, all of the time—and I thank You for that, Lord.

Don’t Gossip

A gossip betrays a confidence, but a trustworthy man keeps a secret. – Proverbs 11:13

 

Lord, sometimes it’s such a temptation to talk about other people. I like to be “in the know,” but I don’t want my listening and sharing to become gossip. Show me the line between relating needed information and gossiping—passing along rumors that may hurt a friend or family member. Help me to be a person who can keep a secret and not betray a confidence. Help me to be trustworthy in all my conversations, Lord.
