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.

The Power of Contentment

But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. And having food and raiment let us be therewith content. – 1 Timothy 6:6-8 KJV
 
Oh Lord, I feel as if I have it all. With You in my life, I need not worry about anything. For as You dress the flowers that neither toil nor spin and feed the birds that neither sow nor reap, You shall do even more for me. I do not worry about what I will eat, wear, drink, or earn today. I leave all my concerns in Your hands, knowing that You will provide. I can be content in Your power and provision. Amen.

Daily Benefits

Blessed be the Lord, who daily loads us with benefits, the God of our salvation! – Psalm 68:19 NKJV
 
I am loaded with benefits! Blessed beyond compare! You, the God of my salvation, the Friend who laid down His life for me, the One who is with me in fire, flood, and famine, the One who will never leave me or forsake me! Today is a new day and You have benefits waiting out there for me. I begin the day in my walk toward You, leaving my burdens behind and focusing on the benefits ahead. And when I come to You at the close of the day, You will be waiting for me, at the end of the path, with a good word. Amen.
