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.

God Is My Rock

The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. – Psalm 18:2 NIV

 

Almighty God, you know the difficulties I’ve been facing lately, the deep sorrows and bitter disappointments I’ve gone through. It encourages me to know that you have been standing right with me through all of it. When I trust you, I feel my fear turning to faith. I feel your strength coursing through me when I need it most. When I begin to lose hope, you are there with a bright thought to keep my spirits up. When I feel like giving up, you empower me to keep going. You are my rock, my fortress, my champion, my savior. I thank you for all you have done for me. Amen.

Family

Let love be genuine . . . Live in harmony with one another . . . Do not repay anyone evil for evil, but take thought for what is noble in the sight of all. – Romans 12:9, 16-17 NRSV

 

Beloved Lord, I pray today for my family. As you know, families are complicated, and I’ve told you plenty about my daily problems with this one or that one. Expectations run high. Wounds run deep. There are dysfunctions that only you can unravel. I ask you to bring your wisdom and power into those situations. Let love reign in my home and in my heart. This is my deepest prayer. Amen.
