Prayer Partner Prayer Requests for June 2018

Pastoral Ministry – Paul Thompson

Please pray for the selection of Elders at Calvary. This process has gone on for over 2½ years and we are getting close to electing our first group of lay elders. Please pray that the right men will be selected and that the church will become healthier as a result.

Please pray for Sarah this summer as she works as camp counselor at Winshape Camp for girls at Mt. Berry in Georgia. Pray that she has a good summer in the Lord for her own sake and that she also has a good and lasting influence on the middle school girls she will be mentoring.

In this season of vacation from school and vacation from work, please pray for me and our staff as we take some time off in the next few weeks. Pray for good family time and for rest and renewal.

And finally, let’s all commit to praying that kids get saved this year during VBS! Pray for the leaders, teachers, and all volunteers, but mostly for the kids who will hear the Gospel.

Worship Pastor – Matthew Dorsey

Ephesians 1:15–23 (ESV)

15 For this reason, because I have heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love toward all the saints, 16 I do not cease to give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers, 17 that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of him, 18 having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, 19 and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power toward us who believe, according to the working of his great might 20 that he worked in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly places, 21 far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and above every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come. 22 And he put all things under his feet and gave him as head over all things to the church, 23 which is his body, the fullness of him who fills all in all.

Join me in praying the following for Calvary:

1) let us give thanks for the body of believers called Calvary.

2) for God to give us “wisdom and revelation." 

3) that believing this revelation would awaken us to own who we are in Christ; embrace the spiritual inheritance, live the spirit-filled life, and carry the gospel to the nations

4) we would know His amazing power working among us and through us.

5) we would be the holy and spotless bride He has called and purposed us to be.

6) our lives and gathered services would be characterized by joy-filled submission to Christ for the glory of His name.


Please pray for our trip to North Carolina this month.  We are planning to visit with Elijah’s birth mom as well as my family.  Please pray for our house to sell in North Carolina.  

The boys are continuing to look at college options and plan to visit more schools this summer.  Please pray for God to guide them in education and vocation.  

Thanks for praying 


Preschool Ministry – Joyce Alexander

VBS—Please pray for the volunteers to be prepared and ready for their kids.  Wednesday is the evangelistic emphasis day where the Gospel will be shared.  Please pray that the Holy Spirit moves among our children.

Summer—It’s often hard to find volunteers during worship in the summer.  This year is proving to be the same kind of difficulty.  Please pray for us in Preschool as we search for VIPs to care for the children.

Personal—On June 25 I will be having a total knee replacement on my right knee.  Prayers for my wonderful physician and for me as I recover.
