Moore College knows the importance and imperative of prayer to God's work at the college. The College has a number of ongoing ways by which prayer and praise points are circulated for prayer supporters to use for their individual or group prayers.
A Quarterly Prayer Bulletin publication is produced which you can receive by email or mail (Contact Us to be added to the mailing list). There is a Prayer Support Group that meets reguarly to pray for Moore College's faculty, students and staff and the activities and needs of the college. A Men Praying for Moore Night group also exists for this same purpose. Other ways you can pray are through our Monthly Prayer Points and signing up to receive our Monthly Prayer Update emails.
You can subscribe to Quarterly Prayer Bulletins in an App for Android, iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch called PrayerMate which helps people be faithful in prayer. You can enter all of your personal prayer points for friends & family, and subscribe to online content from organisations like Moore College. All of the causes you want to pray for are together in one place.

From the Principal, Dr Mark Thompson:
And this is the confidence that we have toward him, that if we ask anything according to his will he hears us. (1 John 5:14)
Too often, I fear, we give little thought to the content of our prayers. It is enough that we have taken the trouble to pray at all! And so we pray, expressing whatever happens to come to mind. In private our prayers may express our own desires. In public we may say what we think others expect. The promises that invite us to pray call for more than this.
The promises of God attaching to prayer are extraordinary. He hears the cries of those who fear him (Psalm 145:19). We can pray with confidence because of the promises of our heavenly Father. We are not, however, to think that we may indulge our selfish desires in prayer. The invitation of our Father to make our requests known to him (Philippians 4:6) is not a license to be careless in our prayers. Those who take the promises of God seriously will give deliberate and careful thought to what we pray for. We are to ask “anything according to his will”.
On the one hand this does not mean that we need to have knowledge of God’s secret purposes in a particular situation before we can pray. On the other hand, it does not mean something so general that all we can pray in a particular circumstance is “Lord, may your will be done” (although that is always a good prayer to pray!).
If we take the promises of God seriously we will consider what we know of God’s will from the Bible, and try to pray “according to his will” in the circumstances in which we find ourselves.
