Prayer Notes October - November 2014

What a blessing it is to be partnering with you in prayer for the ministry of Melbourne School of Theology! As much as we continue striving to reach our goals for the college, we know that it is only through God’s strength that we are able to achieve anything. Our students recently experienced the power of prayer during Mission Week activities, which included evangelism to university students, helping to run church services, cross-cultural work with Indigenous communities and outreach in the city among Muslim groups. Many of the students have since shared how the power of prayer was made evident to them during specific outreach events and conversations. We are so thankful that you are able to intercede on behalf of our students, faculty, staff and volunteers to help build the mighty work God is doing here! May our wonderful Lord bless you for your faithfulness as you bring these requests before Him:
Wednesday, 1st October Students are returning to normal classes this week. Please pray that they will be refreshed and ready to continue the semester with perseverance. Thursday, 2nd October Praise God for wonderful Mission Week experiences throughout Melbourne, country Victoria and the Kimberley region of Western Australia and Northern Territory. Please pray for strengthened relationships with churches, ministries and para-church groups that students connected with while on mission. Please also pray for student teams as they share about their experiences in chapel this morning. Friday, 3rd October Pray for students finalising essays and assignments. Please ask for the surpassing peace of our Lord Jesus to calm their anxieties and give them the words they need to complete the tasks at hand. Saturday, 4th October The college is gearing up for a busy period of events. Please pray for Property and Events Coordinator, Susanne Quilliam, and Cleaning and Catering Manager, Tina Giarratana, as they prepare for cleaning, repairs, food preparation and maintenance of the property. Sunday, 5th October Pray for our family members who do not know the Lord. Pray that through our witness we will be able to faithfully, and with full assurance, proclaim the grace and truth of the gospel through our words and practice, and ask the Holy Spirit to give us opportunities to pray and help them in love.
