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.

Pour Out Your Spirit

“For I will pour out water to quench your thirst and to irrigate your parched fields. And I will pour out my Spirit on your descendants, and my blessing on your children.” – Isaiah 44:3 NLT
 
Lord, I am thirsty, parched with the demands of this world. I am in want in so many ways. Help me not to focus on what I don’t have, but to focus on You and the blessings that You have prepared for me and my children. Pour out Your Spirit upon me now. Fill me with Your presence. Give me hope for this day. I anticipate blessings waiting around every corner. Thank You, Lord for taking such good care of me. You, my Savior, are the greatest blessing of all! Amen.

Bearing Fruit

But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and in His law he meditates day and night. He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf also shall not wither; and whatever he does shall prosper. – Psalm 1:2-3 NKJV
 
I come to You this morning, meditating on Your law, Your Word. That is my living water. You are the quencher of my thirst. You provide everything for me. Because of Your presence in my life, I can bring forth the fruit You want me to bear. As I go through the activities of this day, may Your hand be upon me so that whatever I do will prosper. To Your good and great glory, Lord, amen!
