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 fill out the form below or contact Dr. Marc Donaldson.

Lifted out of the Pit

“’Do not fear, for I am with you; do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, surely I will help you, surely I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.’” – Isaiah 41:10 NASB
 
I am in such turmoil. I don’t understand what’s happening or why. All I know is that I am stressed out and I can’t seem to get a handle on anything anymore. Lift me up out of this pit, Lord. I trust in You. I know that You can uphold me, that You can help me rise above my troubles, for You have overcome this world. I know that I am precious in Your sight and You will not allow evil to harm me. Save me, lift me, meet me now! Amen.

Forgiving Love

Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. – 1 John 4:7 KJV
 
You are love and You came into the world to show us that love. When we love others, we are doing what You have called us to do. But right now, Lord, I need help swallowing the resentment I feel toward my friend. She has betrayed me, and I don’t know how I can love her again without Your help. This morning I pray for that forgiving love. I am saved, born of You, and I know You. Now I ask for Your love to fill me to overflowing. Help me to forgive. Heal my wounds, O Lord, my strength and song. Amen.
