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.

God Gives the Power

“Be careful not to say in your heart, ‘My power and strong hand have made me rich.’ But remember the Lord your God. For it is He Who is giving you power to become rich.,” – Deuteronomy 8:17-18 NLV
 
You are the One who has brought me to where I am today. Thank You, God, for giving me power and strength. All the blessings I have in this life come from Your hand. Continue to lead me in Your way. Although I may not be rich in a worldly sense, I am rich in my love of You. Further my knowledge and increase my talents so that I can do the work You desire. Amen.

One Body

We are members one of another. – Ephesians 4:25 KJV
 
When one of us is suffering, Lord, we all hurt. Some of my church are grieving, some are burned out, some are of ill health and unsound mind, and some are in financial distress. Lord, bless the people who make up the body of my church. Give them love and comfort. Make this body a unified body strengthened by Your Spirit and Your love, gathered to meet in Your presence, formed to do Your will. Amen.
