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.

Unceasing Prayer

Prayer was made without ceasing of the church unto God for him. – Acts 12:5 KJV
 
God, I remember how Peter’s friends prayed for him while he was in prison, how they constantly and consistently interceded for him. You sent an angel to visit Peter and his chains fell off! Help me to be such a prayer warrior today. Lord, tell me whom to pray for this morning. And may such deliverance come to that person according to Your will. Amen.

On Eagles’ Wings

“’I carried you on eagles’ wings and brought you to myself.’” – Exodus 19:4 NIV
 
God, I need You to lift me up, above all these problems, above my circumstances, above my helplessness. Carry me off to Your place in the heavenlies, where I can find my breath, where I can sit with You, where I can find the peace of Your presence. You alone can carry me through this. I feel Your strong arms holding me close. Thank You, Lord, for saving my soul. Amen.
