It Is Good to Praise the Lord!

Dec. 5-11

Scripture:
Psalm 92:1-2 (NIV)
It is good to praise the Lord and make music to your name, O most High, to proclaim your love in the morning and your faithfulness at night.

Prayer:

  • Pray that students who are facing economic challenges will be able to meet their financial obligations.
  • Pray that students will stand strong in their faith and that their commitment to prayer and worship will increase.
  • Pray for traveling mercies as our Whitworth Choir travels to Seattle and then returns to Spokane for Whitworth’s annual Christmas Festival concerts, and ask that our singers will lift God up through their songs.
  • Pray that joy will resound throughout the Whitworth community as we gather for our traditional Christmas reception and dinner, hosted by Beck and Julie Taylor, on Dec. 5.
  • Pray for those who will participate and perform in “A Festival of Short Plays,” Dec. 6-8.
  • Pray for our chapel service on Dec. 6, as Campus Pastor Mindy Smith shares with us from Philippians 4:2-14.
  • Pray for chapel team leaders as they share with us through Christmas music and prayer in our chapel services on Dec. 6 and 8.
  • Pray for the upcoming candlelight service in chapel, featuring the Whitworth Men’s Chorus, on Dec. 11.
  • Pray for Initiative 2.3 of the Whitworth 2021 plan, “Courage at the Crossroads,” through which the university will promote compelling opportunities for advanced collaborative learning, creative expression, research, cross-cultural engagement, leadership development and other enriching learning activities to attract and retain high-achieving students.

Thanksgiving:
God, it is good to praise you and to sing praises unto your name. We are most grateful for your extravagant grace, given to us through your son, Jesus Christ, whose birth we prepare to celebrate during this Advent season.
