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 fill out the form below or contact Dr. Marc Donaldson.

Guided by the Holy Spirit

Let the Holy Spirit lead you in each step. . . .If the Holy Spirit is living in us, let us be led by Him in all things. – Galatians 5:16, 25 NLV

 

I understand, Lord, that the Holy Spirit is just waiting to lead me. Open my mind and heart and ears to His voice today. Still the constant chatter in my head that keeps reminding me of all the tasks I need to get done. Give me the plan You have already laid out for my life. Shape me into the person You want me to be so that I can do what You have created me to do. Lead me step by step, Lord. I commit my way and my plans to Your purpose. Amen.

Encouraging Others

Let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds, not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another. – Hebrews 10:24-25 NASB

 

Lord, I will be meeting with others today. I want to be an encourager, stimulating others, drawing them closer to You. Plant a good word in my heart, one I can use to edify others. Point out a verse from my Bible reading today that someone else needs to hear. Give me the right moment, the right words. And if it’s a listening ear someone needs, give me the wisdom of silence. Lead me to do Your will this day. Amen.
