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.

Prayer Song

By day the LORD directs his love, at night his song is with me—a prayer to the God of my life. – Psalm 42:8 NIV

I sing to You, Lord. My joy, heartache, and thanksgiving create a symphony of emotion. In the solitude of nightfall, I cannot help but sing. I release the worries of my day to Your care. I trust You with my today and my tomorrow. My panic turns to peace as the first notes of praise drift heavenward. Your voice blends with mine for a few sweet moments. By day, Lord, guide me with Your love. By night, free me with your melody. Amen.

God Hears Us

This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. – 1 John 4:14 NIV

Lord, thank You for hearing me. Your ears are open to the musings of my heart, the longings of my soul, and the questions of my mind. Even in my most insecure moments, I utter words I know will reach Your heart. As Your child, I seek Your will and Your response and I know You listen. Amen.
