In need of prayer?
Prayer requests may be emailed to Mrs C (Marsha) at the Prayer Chain, placed in the agape boxes, or phoned in to 388-1031.
To help us as we pray for others, please join our prayer chain in intercessory prayer every Saturday morning at 9 AM in the Calvary Chapel Prayer Room and to get on our email prayer list, please request to be added subscribing to the Calvary Chapel Prayer Chain in the left sidebar.
All requests are confidential, or you may also ask for some personal counseling.
This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him.
~1 John 5:14-15 (NIV)
“The sheep are never so safe from the wolf as when they are near the shepherd.” – Charles Spurgeon
Fast Facts: Although 90% of Americans say they pray (60% say they pray every day), the ways they pray vary significantly, according to pollster George Barna. Two out of three unchurched Americans (63%) pray regularly, but only one out of three (34%) is sure that praying makes any difference. In contrast, nearly 70% of the “born-again” respondents think God personally responds to their prayers.
Among those who pray:
* 95% express gratitude to God
* 76% ask God to forgive particular sins
* 61% make specific requests of God
* 12% pray in tongues

How is your prayer life? If you are like most of us, it has seasons, and sometimes lacks consistency. I cannot think of anything more important than intimacy with our Heavenly Father. “It is good to be near God.” (Psalm 73:28) Nearly fourteen hundred verses in the Bible talk about prayer. A rich and fulfilling prayer life is essential to our spiritual growth.
