Pray that the trainees would be transformed in their character to be useful to the Lord in His service (Rom. 12:2; 2 Tim. 2:15, 21; 4:11; Philem. 1:11).
Rom. 12:2—And do not be fashioned according to this age, but be transformed by the renewing of the mind that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and well pleasing and perfect.
2 Tim. 2:15, 21—Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, an unashamed workman, cutting straight the word of the truth…If therefore anyone cleanses himself from these, he will be a vessel unto honor, sanctified, useful to the master, prepared unto every good work.
2 Tim. 4:11—Luke alone is with me. Take Mark and bring him with you, for he is useful to me for the ministry.
Philem. 1:11—[Onesimus] formerly was useless to you but now is useful both to you and to me.
