Dearest Calvary Family,
Let me first wish you a Happy New Year! May 2021 be a special year for each of us individually and for us as a church family.
As we begin this new year, it is appropriate that we bathe the year in prayer. With this goal, I want to invite you to join us for Calvary’s New Year’s prayer campaign called “31 Days of Prayer.” Here is how it will work:
Each day throughout January, you will be emailed a specific prayer guide.
We ask that each Calvary member commit to praying through the guide on a daily basis.
Also, on Monday through Friday throughout January, we will offer a Zoom prayer meeting option led by a Calvary staff member at the noon hour. A Zoom link will be sent with the daily email.
As we all know, the scriptures frequently tell us how vitally important prayer is to our own spiritual health and well being and to the advancement of God’s kingdom work. This month, I encourage each of you to meditate on the following passages that speak to biblical prayer:
Psalm 66:18 (NIV)
18 If I had cherished sin in my heart, the Lord would not have listened.
Daniel 9:18 (NIV)
18 We do not make requests of you because we are righteous, but because of your great mercy.
Psalm 5:3 (NIV)
3 In the morning, LORD, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait expectantly.
1 John 5:14 (NIV)
14 This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.
Prayerfully and Expectantly Yours,
