The College is aware that there will be many prayer needs in our community over the coming months. We want to ensure that despite any physical isolation we may be feeling, our community feels supported and encouraged. So we have created a way for us to be praying for each other.

Please feel free to pray for the people and needs below. If you would like your prayer request added to the list, or would like to join our prayer team, simply use the form below or email development@ttc.wa.edu.au and put PRAYER in the subject heading.

All prayers will be anonymous – first names only.

God bless you all!

  • many people joining Zoom Bible studies in India from Hindu and Muslim backgrounds
  • people still joining the church despite the inconvenience of Zoom
  • the aged in WA care facilities being kept safe
  • churches experiencing significantly more involvement in online Bible studies and worship services, even in other states and countries
  • former students who have confidence in the gospel because of Trinity and feel well equipped for evangelism
  • several people who having disconnected from church in their youth have rung pastors seeing their need to reconnect
  • churches remaining connected to their congregations
  • members of the community who are more aware of their neighbours who need assistance to manage at this time
  • his ultimate control and plan through this time; it hasn’t taken him by surprise!
  • technology allowing the community to stay connected and for the personnel with the skills to teach how to use it

Pray for:

Churches:

  • the people on the ‘fringe’ of church; that they would continue to connect with their church family
  • converting training, youth, children’s and other programs to be delivered via Zoom or YouTube
  • maintaining contact with the quieter, more retiring congregants
  • and pastoral teams; that they would have wisdom to serve and comfort their older congregants well
  • to support elderly Christians unable to attend their regular church and without access to technology which would enable this
  • to successfully utilise technology to maintain homegroups

Missionaries:

  • Aiden and Alfinda Herman whose departure date for North Macedonia has been delayed until restrictions have been eased; for patience, for God to go before them when applying for new visas and for the Roma people whom they will be serving and who rely on the daily ability to work.
  • ‘n’ and ‘l’ who have completed their missionary training studies and are in their support-raising phase (postponed); that God would help them raise the required funds despite the difficult times
  • Robert and Shelley Chapman (Tom and Luis) missionaries in Mexico; for safety and wisdom

Our Community:

  • Stacey Hewson; for quick healing for a broken leg without the need for surgical intervention
  • nurses and chaplains going into aged care facilities; that they remain vigilant with infection control
  • those seeking employment in these difficult times
  • wisdom to determine the future of student ministry and how to do evangelism via an online mode
  • parents with children with special needs; that they would be granted an extra portion of grace and patience as they manage ‘staying at home’
  • those studying within the confines of home with children also being home-schooled; that everyone would receive the time they need to be effective
  • the opportunity coronavirus has afforded us to see our need of a Saviour
  • students and employees managing the logistics of working from home with small children and limited space
  • patience for people as they isolate during this time; that they would enjoy time with family and activities at home that they normally don’t have time for
  • elderly relatives in care homes who can no longer receive visitors
  • nurses and care workers under an increased workload; that they would have the capacity to provide adequate care for their charges

Our Country:

  • our Prime Minister, the state Premiers, medical workers, church leaders and others in leadership positions; for guidance and wisdom in their efforts to keep us safe

Our World:

  • people in poorer, more densely populated countries; for relief to be available for them
  • a vaccine to be found
  • those in refugee camps and under-developed countries; that measures can be implemented to reduce the risk of Covid-19 infection and that sufficient medical assistance would be available

  • for Faculty as they up-skill in order to present lectures to students via Zoom
