As a ministry of Congregational Care at Calvary, the Prayer Support Team seeks to reflect God's compassion by providing prayer support to the Calvary Church family in times of need.
Core Values of the Prayer Support Team:
- It is good for Christians to pray for each other (Ephesians 6:18, Colossians 4:2).
- All Christians can pray directly to God (Ephesians 2:18). God does not give special preference to certain people, such as pastors, who pray.
- The prayer of one godly person is effective (James 5:16). God is as responsive to the prayers of one as He is to the prayers of many.
- Prayer requests often involve private matters (Matthew 6:6) that are best shared at a level of support where trust and intimacy have been established. At Calvary Church, this is best found in Small Groups or Adult Bible Fellowships (ABFs).
How does the Prayer Support Team operate?
- The Prayer Support Team consists of the team leader, group leaders, and team members. Each month, a group from the team is "on call" to receive prayer requests. The Congregational Care Administrative Assistant will direct all prayer requests for the Prayer Support Team to the team leader who will direct the request to the "on call" group leader. The group leader is responsible to make sure that each member of the "on call" group receives the prayer request.
