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.

Perseverance in Prayer

As you know, we consider blessed those who have persevered. You have heard of Job’s perseverance and have seen what the Lord finally brought about. The Lord is full of compassion and mercy. – James 5:11 NIV
 
I feel like I’ve been praying forever for a situation that does not seem to be changing, Lord. I feel like Job: Here I am on my knees in prayer while the entire world dissolves around me. But I know that You are in control. You know all things. So once again, I lift my concern up to You, confident that You will handle the situation in Your timing. Amen.

God’s Awesome Power

Say to God, “How awesome are your deeds! So great is your power. . . .All the earth bows down to you; they sing praise to you, they sing praise to your name.” – Psalm 66:3-4 NIV
 
Lord, You parted the Red Sea and You stilled the wind and the waves. You gave sight to the blind and hearing to the deaf. You raised people from the dead. Your power is awesome! Nothing is impossible for You. I bow before You, singing praises to Your name. Amen.
