The Blessing of God’s Presence

Sept. 5-11

Scripture:
Psalm 84:1-4
1 How lovely is your dwelling place, O LORD of Heaven’s armies. 2 I long, yes, I faint with longing to enter the courts of the LORD. With my whole being, body and soul, I will shout joyfully to the living God. 3 Even the sparrow finds a home, and the swallow builds her nest and raises her young at a place near your altar, O LORD of Heaven’s armies, my King and my God! 4 What joy for those who can live in your house, always singing your praises.

Prayers:

  • We pray for all our athletes: that they stay safe from injury, both physical and emotional. Pray that they continue to be men and women of integrity, and that in victory and in defeat, they be good examples.
  • Pray as our new freshman students adjust to the first full week of college life: that they will get off to a good start in their classes and will find time to rest.
  • Pray as our residence halls open that new students will be welcomed and will feel at ease in all the activities that will be happening in their dorms as well as on our campus.
  • Pray for the entire community of the university as we gather together for Convocation, Thursday, Sept. 8, as President Beck Taylor asks God’s blessings on the coming academic year.
  • Pray for the upcoming Church Ministry Fair, on Friday, Sept. 9, that students will take the opportunity to be involved with our local churches and community.
  • Pray for our new transfer students as they become an essential part of our campus community.
  • Pray for the Courage at the Crossroads 2011-2021 Vision and Strategic Plan, that God will give continued vision to pursue the truth with a steadfast commitment to the integration of Christian faith and learning.

Thanksgiving:
We give thanks for the opportunity to become better people, through experiencing and extending God’s love. We are grateful that God continues to work through us and we are thankful for the many opportunities to contribute to the Whitworth community and make it a place where students, faculty and staff can richly experience God’s presence. For all of God’s blessings, we are grateful.
