The Lord will hear when I call Him. – Psalm 4:3
Prayer works. At CCC, we have witnessed this truth time and time again, which is why we take prayer so seriously here. “I’m praying for you” isn’t some empty platitude; it’s a powerful promise! As Christians, when we pray, God listens.
Prayer in Worship
There are many opportunities for prayer during our Sunday morning services. We pray as a congregation out loud, the prayer Jesus taught his disciples: The Lord’s Prayer (Matt. 6:9-13). Prayer concerns are accepted and lifted up by name during both services. These names will be in the prayers of the ministers and elders for the following week.
Prayer cards can be found in the church pews. If you have a prayer concern or a joy write it on these cards and place them in the offering plate. You may choose for the prayer concern to be confidential (elders & ministers only), added to the short term prayer list or added to the long term prayer list. These cards are prayed for after worship by the elders and throughout the week. If you include an address we will send that person a card.
Short Term and Long Term Prayer Lists
We have two main prayer lists that help keep concerns in our hearts.
The short term prayer list is found on the back page of the Sunday worship bulletin. Names added to that list will appear for six consecutive weeks, after which, if there is need to continue, they will be moved to the long term prayer list.
Names on the long-term prayer list stay on the list for six months (deaths for one year).
Both lists are posted in Friendship Hall, sent to the elders and ministers each week and included in the Weekly Word and Monthly Newsletter. Names may be added to the prayer lists by submitting a blue prayer card during worship as well as by calling or emailing the church office.
