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.

Strength Renewed

Those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. – Isaiah 40:31 NIV
 
Lord, I come to You in this eary morning time, my heart at peace, my mind at rest. As I wait upon You, You come to me, eager to talk and to listen. As I spend time here with You, my strength is renewed. I mount up with wings like eagles. Wtih You by my side, I can run and not be weary, walk and not be faint. Be with me here and now, today and forever.

God Is with Me

Everyone deserted me. May it not be held against them. But the Lord stood at my side and gave me strength. . . .And I was delivered. – 2 Timothy 4:16-17 NIV
 
All of a sudden, I am as alone as David when he stood before Goliath. But I am not going to be mad at others for deserting me. All I need is You. You are my Lord, my Savior, my Deliverer, my Rock, my Refuge. You are by my side. I can feel Your presence right here, right now. Thank You for giving me the power I need. Thank You for never leaving me. Amen.
