Prayer Partner Prayer Requests for September 2019

Pastoral Ministry – Paul Thompson

Praise God for the recent salvations and renewals of commitment to the Lord! I truly believe that there is a growing wave of God’s work at Calvary and in our community! So please, keep praying!

Pray for the salvation of the churched lost – those who may come and participate at some level but do not truly have Christ (These are those that Jesus spoke of in Matthew 7:21-23).

Pray for the lost children and grandchildren of church members.

Pray for the saved prodigals to come back ‘home’ to the Lord.

Pray for God to seriously stir our hearts for the lost all around us – our own mission fields.

Pray that God will send out from us missionaries – both short-term and long.

Pray for all those who have responded to the Gospel that they will be discipled and begin to grow. Pray also that they would be protected and strengthened against the attacks of the enemy.

Pray that our worship services would glorify God, make much of Jesus, be true to the Word, and impact lives.

Continue to pray that God will move and more will come to Christ and be saved and baptized in the days to come!


Executive Pastor – Charles Uptain

Pray for our mission partners around the world. Pray they find open hearts to the gospel and fertile fields to make disciples.

Pray for our mission trips in 2020. We want to send 100 short term missionaries next year. Pray God burdens the hearts of our members to go make disciples.

Pray for our budgeting process. The Finance committee and staff are working to present a budget that will line up with God’s will for his church in 2020.

On a personal note, pray for John Adams at the University of Alabama. Pray for him to find a church to plug in and serve. Pray for him to be bold with the Gospel.


Worship Pastor – Matthew Dorsey

Ephesians 3:16–21 (ESV)

The Apostle Paul’s prayer for the Ephesian Church.

16 that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, 19 and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. 20 Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, 21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.


Discipleship Ministry – Dan Tankersley

Please pray for:

The "Who's Your One?" emphasis coming in September. Pray for God to prepare our hearts for this. Pray for Kingdom impact.

Life-on-Life discipleship to increase at Calvary. 

Calvary members. Pray John 15:8 for the people of Calvary…that as time goes on, more and more of us will produce much fruit and so prove to be disciples of Christ…to the glory of God.

Life Group leaders as they labor to present their members mature in Christ (Col. 1:28)

Wisdom and discernment for Pastors and Elders as they lead Calvary to holiness and unity. 

The Women's Ministry as they aim to train up women who clearly understand and pass on Scriptures through both life and teaching.

The "Insanity on Obedience" study to propel our members to obey God, no matter what. 

The kids and mentors that will be involved in Camp ROCK this year!  Camp ROCK begins September 10th! 

Thank you for praying! 


Community Ministry – Tommy Perry

Camp ROCK begins September 10. Please be in prayer for the kids being mentored this school year. Pray that healthy relationships would be built between mentors, kids, and guardians. Also, that we would present a clear gospel to them (kids and guardians) and that there would be true belief that bears eternal life (John 3:16, 3:36).

Pray for more individuals to engage in the numerous opportunities available to this body to serve and impact our community for Christ.

Continue to pray for our efforts at Dothan Preparatory Academy. We will get started with tutoring and FCA in October and would desire your prayers for these ministry opportunities.


Preschool Ministry – Joyce Alexander

Trusting God this month to provide for our needs in Preschool.  He’s so good to us.  Thank you for praying for us. 

VIPs needed—I counted 12 people who are currently serving as VIPs and they don’t have any preschool aged children.  We are so thankful for them.  Due to some personal issues and people who have moved out of the area, we have REAL need for more VIPs.  Almost all preschool parents serve as VIPs—the only exceptions are those who work on Sunday mornings in other areas of our church.  We ask for 10 people per week to volunteer.  That’s 130 people per quarter who serve and we also pay 10 employees to work each Sunday morning just to have a quality service for our families.  Please help me pray for more people to join us.  They only serve once per quarter or four times per year. 


Senior Adult Ministry – Randy Hunt

Please remember my son and daughter-in-law Drew and Brittany Hunt as they deal with a loss.

Remember Sandra and myself, we covet your prayers as we make plans for ministry opportunities for our Senior Adults. We want to be known as a group that serves.

Remember our Sonshine Choir as we work on a Christmas musical.
