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.

Overwhelmed

For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them. – Ephesians 2:10 NKJV
 
God, I have so many things to do today. I feel overwhelmed. But I am here to be Your hands and feet. You have known since the beginning of time what I am to accomplish each and every day. Give me the wisdom to do what You want me to do, to be the person You want me to be. Amen.

A Prayer for Deliverance

I sought the LORD, and He heard me, and delivered me from all my fears. – Psalm 14:4 NKJV
 
I am here, seeking You, Lord. I am looking in Your Word for courage and strength. Help me to have more confidence in You. You are my rock and my refuge. Bring me up to where You are. I want to commune with You, to rest with You, to be head over heels “in trust” with You. Show me how to do that, Lord. As I look upon Your face, deliver me from this burden of fear. I long to dwell in Your presence here and now, and when I rise from this place of prayer, I long to take You with me through my day. You are my courage and my strength. Nothing can harm me. Amen.
