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.

Walk by Faith

Our life is lived by faith. We do not live by what we see in front of us. – 2 Corinthians 5:7 NLV
 
Oh God, I see the waves crashing around me, my troubles overwhelming me. I feel as if I am sinking with no foothold to save me! Come to me, Lord. Cover me with your love. Lord, I believe! Help my unbelief! I refuse to look at all the troubles around me. I will keep my eyes on You only. I see Your light and love, Your precious face, Your lips telling me, “It is I; do not be afraid. Just believe.” I believe, Lord! I believe!

Living Water

Early the next morning. . .she went on her way and wandered in the desert. . . .Then God opened her eyes and she saw a well of water. – Genesis 21:14, 19 NIV
 
Lord, thank You for being with me as I spend my quiet time in Your presence. When I am in the wilderness, You tell me not to fear. You tell me to rise in Your strength. And then You open my eyes and direct me to the living water. Lord, there is no one like You, no one who loves me as You do. I thirst for Your presence and am rewarded with Your peace. Be Thou my eternal fount of blessing. Amen.
