Our Commitment to God

Sept. 19-26

Psalm 37:4 (NIV)
Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart.


  • We pray for Community Building Day, Sept. 20, as our students serve those in need in the Spokane community. May they serve with gladness and joyful hearts.
  • Pray as our students move into the semester that they will rise to the challenges in the intellectual and spiritual journey set before them.
  • Pray that as our Whitworth Foundation Board of Directors visits on Sept. 20 they will have wisdom in their stewardship of the resources used to support Whitworth’s mission.
  • Pray for our sense of unity in Christ each Thursday as we celebrate the Lord’s Supper together in the chapel. May we grow in our awareness of God’s grace extended to us through Christ’s suffering, death and resurrection.
  • Pray that students are encouraged to study even in difficult times, that grace is granted, and that they will persevere.
  • Pray for our new faculty members: Rafaela Acevedo-Field, Dana Bates, Cristal Brown, Robert Buckham, Grant Casady, Krista Kubiak Crotty, Jack Downs, Aaron Dyszelski, Jael Hagerott, Megan Hershey, Lori Johnson, Kathryn Lee, Matt Logie, Vange Ocasio, Michelle Smith, Anne Wilcox, and Jason Wollschleger. Pray that our faculty will be encouraged as they continue to teach, guide, prepare, and help develop our students in a positive student-focused environment.
  • Pray for our faculty, staff and student employees as the semester begins.
  • Pray for the Whitworth 2021 Vision and Strategic Plan’s Strategic Goal No.2, as the university cultivates an intellectually vital and inclusive campus culture in which faculty and students regularly engage in rigorous, open and civil discourse on challenging ideas inside and outside the classroom.

We give thanks as we put our whole hearts into the task of serving God and holding back nothing. We are grateful for God’s grace, which draws us deeper into our relationships with God in Christ, and we pray that we will serve with all our heart, mind, soul, spirit and strength.
