Even a few minutes on this website will show that there are many group activities at Trinity that encourage people to engage with God.

However, anyone who can identify with the seeking of God expressed above, should find material in this section that will help in developing the kind of individual relationship with God, that Jesus pointed us to:

But when you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you. (1)

Here’s what I want you to do: Find a quiet, secluded place so you won’t be tempted to role-play before God. Just be there as simply and honestly as you can manage. The focus will shift from you to God, and you will begin to sense his grace.

Some of the material here has been used within Trinity in prayer meetings, retreats, small groups or as preparation for communion. There will be little here that cannot be found elsewhere in similar forms – but sometimes there are days when there isn’t time to look…

Clicking on these links will take you to prayers that you may find useful as ‘scaffolding’ for your own praying:

A good starting point

would be to pray the words at the top of this screen and live for a week in Psalm 63, watching for the God who is willing to be found.
