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.

My Purpose

The LORD has made everything for its purpose. – Proverbs 16:4 NRSV

 

Lord, what am I supposed to do? I’m not sure why I’m at this job. Or am I not to have a career but be a stay-at-home parent? Have I made the wrong decision? Am I walking in Your will or have I been led by my own desires? Show me, Lord, which way You want me to go. If there is some new challenge You want me to undertake, please tell me. Let me hear Your voice. Renew my mind this morning so that I can know Your good and perfect will for my life. Amen.

Unceasing Prayer

Prayer was made without ceasing of the church unto God for him. – Acts 12:5 KJV

 

God, I remember how Peter’s friends prayed for him while he was in prison, how they constantly and consistently interceded for him. You sent an angel to visit Peter and his chains fell off! Help me to be such a prayer warrior today. Lord, tell me whom to pray for this morning. And may such deliverance come to that person according to Your will. Amen.
