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.

Building Up

Encourage (admonish, exhort) one another and edify (strengthen and build up) one another. – 1 Thessalonians 5:11 AMP   OK, Lord, today not one negative thought is going to go through my head and come out of my mouth. This morning I will drench myself in Your Word and come out smiling. I want to spread to others the joy You plant in my heart. Give me the right words to say at the right moment to build up others. Give me words of praise, words of wisdom, and words of encouragement. Amen.   [from Power Prayers to Start Your Day by Donna Maltese]

A New Heart

“I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you. I will take away your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.” – Ezekiel 36:26 NLV   Lord, I have such anger within me for all the wrongs done me all day long. Even when I’m out in traffic and someone cuts me off, I’m really miffed. Or when my family comes to the dinner table and no one appreciates how hard I’ve worked to make this meal but complains about every little thing, I just want to scream! Give me that new heart. Empty this heart of stone, the one so easily offended. Fill it with Your love. Amen.   [from Power Prayers to Start Your Day by Donna Maltese]
