We believe prayer is one of the best ways to support your sons and daughters as they study at Trinity Western. Over the past few years, we have seen so many answers to prayer and seen God provide in amazing ways. Our students face many stresses during this season of life – from family illness or death, financial stresses, academic or personal anxiety, and more. We pray for our students during exams, while traveling with sport teams, or on missions trips. Through our Parent Chapter groups, we have seen answered prayers, caring communities, and new friendships form. We invite you to be engaged in a group. If there is no group in your area, contact us at parents@twu.ca and we can help you start one!

If you are willing to host a group, we would be delighted to work with you on this. If you can't get to a prayer group, please know we commit to pray for requests sent to us. To submit a request, email parents@twu.ca where it will be posted anonymously (unless otherwise requested). We welcome anyone to visit this TWU parent prayer site and appreciate your prayers for the needs posted.

History of this prayer team: This prayer ministry began a number of years ago with a few parents gathering at the home of former TWU parents, Bruce and Denise Gordon, where they prayed for their sons and daughters. The next year, Denise & Bruce Gordon challenged parents to get involved, with 35 people responding. The following year, 125 families began praying across Canada, the US and internationally. The ministry continues to grow.

1 John 5:14 New International Version (NIV) This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.”
