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.

On Assignment from God

The Lord has assigned to each his task. – 1 Corinthians 3:5 NIV
 
I come to You this morning asking for today’s assignment. How would You have me serve You? Should I join the worship team? Should I become a prayer partner? Should I help in children’s church? Show me the way that lies before me, Lord, so I can best serve You and others. Amen.

Compassion for the Hungry

Is there any encouragement from belonging to Christ? Any comfort from his love? Any fellowship together in the Spirit? Are your hearts tender and compassionate? Then make me truly happy by agreeing wholeheartedly with each other, loving one another, and working together with one mind and purpose. – Philippians 1:1-2 NLT
 
With the compassion You show to us, Your abiding tenderness through thick and thin, today I reach out to the hungry here and abroad. Open my eyes to how I can help. Show me where my hands can be used to help feed those who are starving. I want to serve others in the name of Jesus Christ, for that is what You have called us to do. Open a door for me. Show me what I can do to make this world a better place. Amen.
