Prayer Partner Prayer Requests for May 2018

Pastoral Ministry – Paul Thompson

Please pray for our Argentina mission team heading out on Sunday afternoon. Pray that our way will be safe, our work will be productive, and our witness will be clear.

Please also pray for wisdom for our church in selecting new deacons and elders. This season of leadership selection is so critical to our church’s future.

Please pray for wisdom and direction in the choosing of church staff – Student Ministry and Senior Adult Ministry. (Those are two different positions. We could combine into one. That might be fun, right?)

Please pray for genuine harvest in Vacation Bible School this year. We still need a few key leaders. Ask God if he wants to use you for a week this summer to make an eternal difference.

And please pray for my family as we try to have some good family time soon this summer.


Executive Pastor – Charles Uptain

Please pray for our mission trip to Argentina, April 29 – May 5. We hope to train new believers and teach about church health. Pray for our team, Pastor Paul Thompson, Cecilia Thompson, Sarah Thompson, Stacey Harrison, and me.

Please pray for the formation of our NYC mission team for this summer. We are getting a late start on this trip, but it has the potential to be a huge help to Steve and Toni Chambers.

Continue to pray for Steve and Toni as they build relationships and share the gospel. Pray for Max and Ruby as well as they learn to be New Yorkers who love Jesus.

Personal Request

Pray for my schooling. I am beginning my final doctoral project, which will take at least a year. Pray that this project will benefit Calvary.


Worship Pastor – Matthew Dorsey

Thanks so much for praying for us and our families, it means more than you know.

Please pray for our family as we continue to settle into Dothan.  We are looking at college options for the boys, please pray for discernment and wisdom.  

Pray that we can finish up, relatively soon, the renovations on our home and feel settled.

Please pray for our family to be effective in ministry at Calvary and in Dothan.  

Join me in praying continually for our worship times together as a church, that we would know God’s power and presence through the Spirit and the Word.


Preschool Ministry – Joyce Alexander

For Life Group—We have been having a good bit of Preschool families visit during Life Group and late worship. This is great because we’ve been praying for this. God is providing. Now we need to recruit more volunteers. Please pray we are able to staff our Preschool classrooms.

VBS—We are in need of more teachers in Preschool. Please pray that God would provide the need. Pray also for the leaders and staff as preparations for VBS continue.


Children’s Ministry – Zach Daniels

Thank you, Calvary faith family, for your prayers.

Please continue to pray for Hannah, Lucy Claire, and me as we try to sell our home in Ozark.

Also, please continue to pray for my mother, Dawn Daniels as she continues to struggle with bouts of depression, anxiety, and hormonal imbalances.

VBS is just around the corner, June 4-8. This is an incredible opportunity to make an impact for the kingdom in our community. Please pray for these things specifically:

   Pray for 6-8 adults and students to step up and fill key leadership roles. 

   Pray that our church will outreach to our surrounding neighbors and communities to invite families and their children.

   Pray for the staff as we piece together all the details that VBS includes.

   Pray for the leaders would build lasting relationships with the kids they will minister to and that once VBS is over, gospel conversations would continue.

   Lastly, pray for our team as we enter the busiest season of the year for age graded ministries. Pray that we would lean and depend on God during this time to get it all done.
