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 for Healing

Is anyone among you sick? Then he must call for the elders of the church and they are to pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord; and the prayer offered in faith will restore the one who is sick. – James 5:14-15 NASB
 
Lord, I am feeling so poorly. You know what is attacking my body. You can see everything. I ask You in prayer, right now, to fill me with Your healing light. Banish the sickness from my body. Fill me with Your presence. Draw me unto You. Amen.

Serving from the Heart

As slaves of Christ, do the will of God with all your heart. – Ephesians 6:6 NLT
 
I want to work for You, Lord, using all my heart, soul, and talent. I want to be your tool, serving You with passion. And as I do so, help me to keep my eye and focus on You and not on the gift You have given me. Help me to understand what You have shaped me to do. Amen.
