Prayer Requests Bowl: A glass bowl saying "Prayer Requests" is available for our guests at Noon Lunch.  It is on a card table along with paper and pens in the back of McCracken Hall.  If one of our guests has a prayer on their heart, they can write it down and put it in the bowl.  If anyone sees a prayer request in the bowl, they can take it and make that prayer a part of their own prayer life.  I'm inviting anyone in the congregation or visiting Trinity to use the prayer requests bowl to submit their own prayers or to take prayers out of the bowl and pray over them.  If you have questions or suggestions, please contact or .
