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.

Constant Love

A friend loveth at all times. – Proverbs 17:17 KJV
 
All I need is love! That’s all I need from my friends right now—people who care about me, who want what’s best for me, who will never turn away. But when I look at my past, I wonder if I’ve always loved my friends. I mean that constant, undying, unyielding love, the kind that You show for us. Forgive me, Lord, for the times I have fallen short, for times that I was so caught up in the busyness of my day that I did not show love to a friend who really needed it. Lord, fill me and my friends with Your love and hep us to let it flow freely to all we meet. Amen.

Sharing My Blessings

“Every man shall give as he is able, according to the blessing of the LORD your God which He has given you.” – Deuteronomy 16:17 NASB
 
Lord, You have blessed me and the works of my hands. I am so grateful to You for all that I have. As You bless me, I am able to bless others in whatever way I can. What a feeling to know that I can help expand Your kingdom! Help me to share my talents, monies, and time, all to Your glory. Amen.
