PRAYER is an integral part of Trinity Presbyterian Church and is offered during our worship services, Bible studies, home groups, fellowship and prayer gatherings.
Our foundational instruction in prayer comes from the Bible verses found in Matthew 6:9-13 where Jesus taught his disciples what is commonly called:
“The Lord’s Prayer”
Our Father, Who art in Heaven,
Hallowed be Thy name;
Thy Kingdom come,
Thy will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our sins,
as we forgive those who sin against us;
lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For Thine is the Kingdom, and the Power,
and the Glory forever.
Other Opportunities for Prayer at Trinity:
In addition to offering the Lord’s Prayer during worship services, joys and concerns can be shared by filling out a card found in the bulletin and indicating whether you would like your prayer requests to be read during the congregational prayer time, shared later with Trinity’s prayer team, or entrusted only to the Pastor for private prayer.
Following worship services at Trinity, prayer ushers are available at the front of the Sanctuary to pray with those who desire personal prayer; and a prayer chapel is available for those who wish to pray in solitude.
Additionally, prayer requests can be shared at: “firstname.lastname@example.org” or by calling the church office at 907-345-4823. Please include your name, the nature of your prayer request, and whether you want it to be shared with the Trinity congregation, prayer team, or only the pastor.
