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.

Broken

The LORD is close to the brokenhearted; he rescues those whose spirits are crushed. – Psalm 34:18 NLT
 
O God, please turn my brokenness into a divine encounter with you. I feel overwhelmed by my circumstances and I know that the only way out is through your help. I feel as if I’ve hit rock bottom and I realize, Lord, how utterly dependent I am on you. I cannot take another step without you. Make this a turning point for me. I release my future into your loving hands. Draw close to me in my brokenness and restore my fellowship with you. Amen.

Priorities

Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need. – Matthew 6:33 NLT
 
Dear God, my priorities are often in the wrong order. Some days my life seems to skip from one urgent interruption to another. I am so easily distracted and often confuse what is urgent with what’s important. But when I put you first, Lord, you give me the proper perspective and help me put everything else in its rightful place. Lord, show me where my focus should be today. Amen.
