Pray for Your Community
We believe that God is faithful to not only hear our prayers but to answer them! We also know that justice and community transformation are things that are close to God's heart. Join us as we pray for our Impact Areas across the community!
Current Prayer Needs
COVID-19 and Community Impact
We pray this would be an opportunity for us to love our immediate neighbors around us. This might be done through phone calls, a wave hello or an email. Pray for those on the frontlines, that God would continue to give them strength. Pray for those who might experience loneliness, that God would bring them comfort. Pray for those with physical needs to be met, like food insecurity or financial upset, that God would be the supplier of all their needs.
UPCOMING BACKPACK & FOOD DRIVE: On July 22nd, we will be holding our final Covid-19 drive, combining our early Backpack Supply Drive with a Food Drive to aid at risk youth. Please pray for the families to be blessed by your donations and God's good news to bring them peace in the midst of a trying year.

Impact Area: Human Trafficking
Partner: Naomi's House
We continue to see God on the move with our organization. Between partnerships, needs, and opportunities, we are strategically planning for growth all while asking God to make this pathway clear for us. Pray for our leadership team, that we will have wisdom and a discerning spirit to know the next steps.
Impact Area: Multicultural & Immigrants
Partner: Nepalese Church Plant
"During this crisis, because of your prayers and efforts (food drive) we were able to meet many Bhutanese/Nepali and Burmese Nepali speaking families in Aurora & in St. Charles. The families we have met through the food drive says, “thank you so much to Christ Community Church for their love & care”. Please continue to pray for all the family’s salvation and for us, as we have more work to do to share God’s love and to discipline them. As God is at work in our community, we also encountered spiritual welfare. Recently we have experienced ministering an individual who try to commit suicide. Please pray for God’s hope and peace to Bhutanese/Nepali community in our neighborhood." ~Amos Shakaya
Impact Area: Under Resourced
Partner: Dunham Rehabilitation (formerly Rosewood)
During the pandemic, the doors have been closed for volunteers to come in and visit. This leaves the residents feeling even more isolated and lonely than ever before. Please pray for them to know God's comfort and kindness during this difficult time of separation.
UPDATE: Our volunteer team has been able to serve by singing outside to residents! Read more about it HERE.
Impact Area: Pro-life
With Planned Parenthood in Aurora remaining open as an "essential service", this means there is no slow down of abortions. Our partners continue to walk with those who are abortion-vulnerable and are asking for continued prayer support as they go through this uncertain time.
Please continue to pray for the lives of the unborn, for the mothers making the decision between abortion and life, and for our partners as they support women in their choice for life during this time.
