Prayer Ministries




At Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa, we offer a variety of prayer meetings throughout the week. These are times to get together before the Lord and fellowship in prayer. We set aside a week annually to seek the Lord in prayer together as the body of Christ, and we have resources for you to enrich your prayer life throughout the year. 


We desire to be in prayer with one another and for each other. If you are looking for prayer, we encourage you to come and pray with a member of our prayer team at our 8:30 + 11 AM gathering. During the week, our ministers are available for our congregation by appointment or for prayer by calling our offices at 714-979-4422.

Prayer Ministry Descriptions


Missions Prayer 

An hour of prayer for our missionaries where we pray through the weekly prayer requests received from our missionaries. Located in the Family Room every Sunday at 4:30 PM. 


Moms and Grandmas in Prayer

Moms in Prayer is a ministry of moms, aunts, and grandmas who stand in the gap for children and schools, praying scripturally and specifically. We teach women to pray, draw closer to God, and be bold in their faith. We bless our schools, teachers, and staff by praying for them weekly. Our vision is for every school in the world to be covered in prayer. Our mission is to impact the world for Christ by gathering mothers to pray. We meet Friday mornings from 8:15 AM–9:15 AM in the Bride's Room (following the Joyful Life schedule). Contact us through our email:


Prayer for Ukraine

We are hosting a weekly hour of prayer for Ukraine on Tuesdays at noon in the Prayer Room. This is a specific time set aside to stand in the gap for our brothers and sisters in Ukraine. We will share updated prayer points for the country, for our missionaries, and for the local church each week. For more information, contact Shaun Havelarr at


Sunday Prechurch Prayer

Join us as a church for prayer on Sundays at 7:30 AM in the Fellowship Hall before our first Sunday morning gathering (8:30 AM in the Main Sanctuary).


Grace Upon Grace Prayer

Members our our Grace Upon Grace fellowship gather every Wednesday at 10:30 AM for a time of prayer in the Bride's Room. 


Women's Intercessory Prayer

The Women's Intercessory Prayer Group is a gathering of women who feel called to pray for the needs of the church. They meet each Monday morning for a brief time of worship before breaking into groups where they pray for the Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa pastors, staff, and missionaries. They pray for all the ministries associated with CCCM, including the Chapel Store, retreats, home groups, and the various outreach groups originating from the church body. Missionaries make it a point to come in for prayer when they are in town, and the relationships that are formed during that time last for years, as the Intercessory Prayer Group follow them through their ministry updates.


Each Monday at noon, the prayer room doors open for anyone who desires prayer. The Prayer Group listens to each request, then several women in the group pray over the individual's needs.


Anita Coon, the Prayer Group's leader, shares, "We are women of all ages and cultures, and our desire to unite in prayer over common requests results in wonderful blessings. We lay aside our own desires for a few hours to lift up the needs of the body of Christ, both near and far, and we are the richer for it. It is truly a privilege to be part of an intercessory prayer group. We all grow and learn together, and we are thankful for our calling.”


If you would like prayer, come to the Prayer Room on Mondays at noon, located on the south side of the campus, adjacent to the Main Sanctuary. For more information, contact Anita.
