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.

Feeding on Faithfulness

Trust in the LORD, and do good; dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness. – Psalm 37:3 NKJV
 
As I dwell on this earth and take in my early morning manna, I feel Your presence beside me. I remember the times You’ve taken care of me, suffered with me, and led me through the darkness, and I feed on these memories. I feed on Your faithfulness. Thank You for always being there for me. Remain with me now and for the rest of this day, giving me courage and strength as I trust in You. Amen.

Waiting on the Lord

Wait on the LORD; be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart; wait, I say, on the LORD! – Psalm 17:14 NKJV
Dear Lord, as I enter into this quiet time with You, calm my mind, body, and spirit. I long to feel Your touch, heart Your voice, and see Your face. Whatever comes to me this day, I know You will be with me, as You are now—within me, above me, besides me. Thank You for strengthening my heart. Thank You for giving me the patience to wait on You. Amen.
