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.

Peace Like a River

“I am the Lord your God, Who teaches you to do well, Who leads you in the way you should go. If only you had listened to My Laws! Then your peace would have been like a river and your right-standing with God would have been like the waves of the sea.” – Isaiah 48:17-18NLV
 
Lord, give me direction this day. Teach me what is best for me and direct me in the way I should go. When I pay attention to Your commands, You give me peace like a river. It is to Your living water that I run. Help me, Lord, to obey You in all I say and do. Give me the wisdom to abide in Your Word, all to Your glory! Amen.

Our Power

Our help is in the name of the LORD, who made heaven and earth. – Psalm 124:8 NKJV
 
I need look no further than You, Lord, to help me. It is Your name that I trust. It is Your power that will help me meet this challenge. After all, You made me. You know the plan for my life. You have equipped me to do what You have called me to do. Help me not to rely on myself but on You and Your power. That is what is going to give me victory in this life.  Thank You for hearing and answering my prayer. Amen.
