Trinity’s Prayer Space: 4-8th February 2019

Each year Trinity create a Prayer Space for every student to participate in. The theme of the Prayer Space this year was ‘His banner over me is love’ (Song of songs 2:4) and the students created a beautiful artwork banner reflecting this verse.

The Prayer Space is a time of quiet, interactive reflection where students are encouraged to think about God and to ask Him a ‘Big Question’. Thereafter, they have the opportunity to think about prayer by saying ‘Thank you’ as reflected on a PRAISE board, ‘Sorry’ through the creation of a forgiveness cross and ‘Please’ by presenting their requests to God around a bubbles tube. They also considered prayers surrounding their identity by reflecting upon what the world and social media present to them in contrast to how they are loved and created by God in Psalm 139.

The prayers for the World concentrated upon the A21 campaign for the abolition of modern day slavery and the students created ‘paper chain prayers’ of justice.

At the ‘Emoji prayers’ station the students explored the unchanging character of God compared to their feelings.

Trinity are exceptionally grateful to the team of volunteers who came in and helped within the Prayer Space throughout the week.
