Prayer Partner Prayer Requests for November 2019

Pastoral Ministry – Paul Thompson

Please pray for me and our elders and missions committee as we deliberate over future missions opportunities and partnerships. My recent trip to Kenya was eye-opening and now the task is to discern God’s direction as to our potential work and role there.  Please pray for wisdom and for sensitivity to the Holy Spirit.

Please pray for God’s leadership and direction as I prepare a Christmas sermon series and begin work on the small group material for our 2020 journey through the Gospel of Mark.

Pray for our remaining parenting seminars and messages.

Finally, I saw this list of "8 Prayers You Should DESPERATELY Pray For Your Pastor” online the other day and humbly ask that you would pray these for me as well:

#1 – For Protection From Satan
Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. (1 Peter 5:8)

#2 – For Protection Against His Own Sinful Heart
But each person is tempted when he is lured and enticed by his own desire. Then desire when it has conceived gives birth to sin, and sin when it is fully grown brings forth death. (James 1:14-15)

#3 – For Deep Spiritual Encouragement
For I long to see you, that I may impart to you some spiritual gift to strengthen you— that is, that we may be mutually encouraged by each other’s faith, both yours and mine. (Romans 1:11-12)

#4 – For Wisdom
If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him. (James 1:5)

#5 – For Doctrinal Faithfulness
By the Holy Spirit who dwells within us, guard the good deposit entrusted to you. (2 Timothy 1:14)

#6 – For A Healthy Body
But I discipline my body and keep it under control, lest after preaching to others I myself should be disqualified. (1 Corinthians 9:27)

#7 – For A Strong Marriage and Family
Therefore an overseer must be above reproach, the husband of one wife, sober-minded, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, not a drunkard, not violent but gentle, not quarrelsome, not a lover of money. He must manage his own household well, with all dignity keeping his children submissive, for if someone does not know how to manage his own household, how will he care for God’s church. (1 Timothy 3:2-6)

#8 – For Meaningful Friendships
A man of many companions may come to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother. (Proverbs 18:24)

Thank you for your faithful support of prayer!


Executive Pastor – Charles Uptain

Please remember our New York City mission trip, November 18-21. We will be helping Steve and Toni Chambers renovate an outdoor area at a local school as they build relationships in their neighborhood. Pray for good weather and opportunities to share the Gospel.

Pray for our 2020 budget process. Pray for God’s direction in how we steward the finances that He provides in the upcoming year. Pray for God to show you how to give generously and cheerfully like God gives to us.


Worship Pastor – Matthew Dorsey

Praise the Lord for a great trip to Guatemala.  We were able to meet with four potential church partners and ask that you join us in praying that a partnership will soon be developed.  

Praise the Lord for four professions of faith while we were in Guatemala.  

Please pray for Anna, she is in her senior year and is working toward college opportunities. 


Community Ministry – Tommy Perry

Continue to pray for the kids who attended Mission Dothan 2019. Pray that the Scripture we used as our foundation for the camp, Romans 5:8, sinks deep into their heart and God uses the truth of His Word to transform their heart. Pray that our connection with these kids and their families would continue as we try and minister to them by displaying and declaring the love of Christ to their families. If you would like a list of kids to pray for, by name, you can touch base with me (Tommy) at and I can get that to you.

This month one of our ministry partners, Wiregrass Hope, will be having their annual fundraising banquet on November 12 at the Dothan Civic Center. As a church family, pray that it would be an encouraging, fruitful, and God-honoring evening for all involved. Pray that the funds raised would help this ministry continue serving our community in this vital area concerning the sanctity of human life.


Senior Adult Ministry – Randy Hunt

Please pray for the Operation Christmas Child packing party for our senior adults on Sunday November 3, as we pack 100 shoeboxes, to share the Love of Christ with children around the world!

Pray for our veterans as we honor them on Monday, November 11.

Pray for our mid-month worship service and Zach Daniels as he will be speaking for us.

Please pray for Sandra and me as we welcome a new grandchild!
