Prayer

Our vision is to see the body of Christ fully alive and walking in the grace and truth of God’s Word. Following the example of Jesus, we desire to continually do God’s will and regularly pray to him.

As we seek the Father and dwell in His presence, our hearts become one with his. Our delight is in him, and we become the aroma of Christ and the fragrance of the knowledge of him to those around us (II Corinthians 2:14).

The Bible instructs us to put on and take up our offensive and defensive weapons, stand firm, pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests and keep on praying for all the saints (Ephesians 6). 

We are urged to pray for our leaders (I Timothy 2:1); to pray without ceasing (I Thessalonians 5:17); to knock, seek and ask (Matthew 7:7); to present our requests to God through prayer (Philippians 4:6); to devote ourselves to prayer (Colossians 4:2); and to pray in faith (James 5:15).

I have this desire to learn more about God and what I should be doing to please God. I want to gain wisdom and understanding of scripture in the Bible, I want my spiritual senses to be open, especially to be able to know when God is talking to me and instructing me so I can obey him. I’m afraid of going to hell. I want to know my sins so I can repent.

Please pray for my marriage.  My husband lies and makes excuses and has no accountability for his actions.  We have our first baby on the way and it is such a difficult time knowing I can’t trust the man I married.  He is not Christian and came from a broken home where his dad lacked accountability and didn’t care to be a husband or father.  Please pray for us. May God intervene and have mercy.

I had previously asked for prayer for Lisa for healing from liver cancer. The Dr said the cancer was gone after treatment. After her last Dr visit, the Dr said the cancer returned. She is going through more aggressive treatment now, and really needs prayer for healing. After her original diagnosis, she started attending Calvary with her aunt ( who has regularly attended Calvary for many years ).

Thanks for praying for Lisa!
