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.

Daily Benefits

Blessed be the Lord, who daily loads us with benefits, the God of our salvation! – Psalm 68:19 NKJV
 
I am loaded with benefits! Blessed beyond compare! You, the God of my salvation, the Friend who laid down His life for me, the One who is with me in fire, flood, and famine, the One who will never leave me or forsake me! Today is a new day and You have benefits waiting out there for me. I begin the day in my walk toward You, leaving my burdens behind and focusing on the benefits ahead. And when I come to You at the close of the day, You will be waiting for me, at the end of the path, with a good word. Amen.

The Main Thing

One thing I have desired of the LORD, that will I seek: That I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to inquire in His temple. – Psalm 27:4 NKJV
 
Lord, help me to keep the main thing the main thing—and that is to seek first the kingdom of God, beholding Your beauty, inquiring in Your temple. That is all that is truly important, not whether or not I get all my work done at home, the office, or church. As I receive requests for my time and ability, give me wisdom to say yes and no in accordance with Your will.
