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.

The Path

Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight. – Proverbs 3:5-6 NIV
 
Lord, I am so afraid of what this day may bring. So many times I have tried to make this situation right and nothing seems to be working. I cannot figure a way out anymore. Help me to trust in you—not just halfway but the whole way. I don’t understand what’s happening, but I acknowledge Your presence in my life and Your ability to make all things right. Amen.

Crying Out for Healing

So Moses cried out to the LORD, “O God, please heal her!” – Numbers 12:13 NIV
 
Lord, when Miriam had leprosy, her brother cried out for her healing. I come to You this morning, crying out for You to heal my loved one. She is in so much pain. She needs your comfort, strength, love, and grace. Dear Lord, touch her! Allow her to feel Your presence. Immerse her in Your healing light. Amen
