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.

Walking in Wisdom

A man’s own folly ruins his life, yet his heart rages against the LORD. – Proverbs 19:3

 

Lord, please keep me from the foolishness of sin. I ask for wisdom and discernment to make wise choices in my life. When I’m tempted, give me the strength to flee it. When I am uncertain, help me to know the right course of action. When I need good ideas, enlighten my mind with creativity and intelligence. You know everything, Lord—may I walk in Your wisdom and learn Your ways.

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.
