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 fill out the form below or contact Dr. Marc Donaldson.

Be Creative

And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them; and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof. – Genesis 2:19 KJV

 

Lord, You formed all things. And afterward, You invited man to be Your cocreator, allowing him to name things, do things, and serve You. Show me now, Lord, how You want me to employ my talents, my gifts, and myself to make this world a better place. Come to me  now, Lord. Imprint upon my mind what You want me to do, which door You want me to walk through. Amen.

Standing Firm

Watch, stand fast in the faith, be brave, be strong. – 1 Corinthians 16:13 NKJV

 

God, I don’t feel very strong today. In fact, I am filled with that sinking-like-Peter feeling. Buoy my faith, Lord, so that I can stand firm. As I meditate on how You stopped the wind and calmed the sea, how just a touch of Your hand healed others, how there was power even in the hem of Your garment, I know I can stand today, firm in You. Continue filling me with Your power, courage, and strength. Amen
