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.

Bearing Fruit

But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and in His law he meditates day and night. He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf also shall not wither; and whatever he does shall prosper. – Psalm 1:2-3 NKJV
 
I come to You this morning, meditating on Your law, Your Word. That is my living water. You are the quencher of my thirst. You provide everything for me. Because of Your presence in my life, I can bring forth the fruit You want me to bear. As I go through the activities of this day, may Your hand be upon me so that whatever I do will prosper. To Your good and great glory, Lord, amen!

Fear of the Future

I rise early before the sun is up; I cry out for help and put my hope in your words. – Psalm 119:147 NLT
 
Here I am, Lord, rising before the dawn, crying to You for help for that is the desperate state I am in. I fear what this day may bring, or if not this day, the next. Your Word is the only relief, the only confidence, the only rock on which I can stand. Strengthen me with Your courage. You said You would never leave me nor forsake me. So come to me now. Rise within my spirit. Lift me up to the Rock that is higher than I. I want to soar like an eagle and fly into Your arms where I know I will be safe, protected, and loved. Keep Your hand upon me this day and all my days. Amen
