Pray

TCT is a Christian based charity that employs people of all faiths and none.

Prayer changes things!

Many of our staff pray regularly for the people and communities that we serve and for our work supporting people and communities to thrive and flourish.

How we pray varies, as our staff belong to different faith traditions including Christian, Muslim and Sikh.

A prayer to share - Lichfield Diocesan Prayer

"As we follow Christ in the footsteps of St Chad, we pray that the two million people in our diocese encounter a church that is confident in the gospel, knows and loves its communities, and is excited to find God already at work in the world.


We pray for a church that reflects the richness and variety of those communities.


We pray for a church that partners with others in seeking the common good, working for justice as a people of hope."


A Prayer for Peace This Year

Father, I know that you are all-powerful, that you are Sovereign, and that nothing is too difficult for you. Yet today, I still struggle with worry and fear, still carrying the same burdens leftover from yesterday. It’s hard to shake it off even though I’m desperate to leave it fully in your hands. Please lift all the things that are weighing me down, right off shoulders and heavy heart, and give me the peace that only you can provide. I know that you care for whatever concerns me, and your ears are open to my prayers. I know that you understand my struggles, and you see right where I am, even on the days, I feel that no one notices. Guard my heart and mind in you today, as I meditate on your words and truth.

A prayer of those living with dementia

The impact of the pandemic on people with dementia and those who care for them in this pandemic is huge. "Remembering" may become harder, with increasing forgetfulness, as dementia progresses: "re-membering" also speaks of putting back together again, the opposite of dis-membering.

Thanks to Rev. Chris Thorpe for the prayer, which is offered for the work of dementia-friendly churches at the heart of dementia-friendly communities and for everyone affected by dementia:

When memory slips and fades;

when faces, events,

and the rush of life

threaten to overwhelm us;

be our still centre.

Jesus, remember me,

when you come into your kingdom.

In caring, when we are unsure what to do,
when we are at full stretch and beyond,

help us to cross the bridge

from facts to feelings,

from head to heart,

to meet one another with love.

Jesus, remember me,

when you come into your kingdom.
