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.

Use Me, Lord

There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit. There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. There are different kinds of working, but the same God works all of them in all men. – 1 Corinthians 12:4-6 NIV
 
Give me the humility You had when You washed the feet of the disciples. I am willing to take on whatever task—high or low—that You have for me. Grant me the spirit of cooperation as I work with others. Show me how to use my gift in new and different ways. I serve to bring glory and honor and blessing to You. Amen.

Peace

[Jesus said,] These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation; but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. – John 16:33 KJV
 
Dear God, how I pray for peace around the world. Some say it’s impossible–but with You all things are possible. And while peace may not yet reign throughout the earth, with You in my heart, peace reigns within, for You have overcome the world! May all people feel Your peace within!
