Remember Me

April 2-8

Scripture:
Psalm 24:7-9 (NIV)
Lift up your heads, O you gates; be lifted up, you ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in. Who is this King of glory? The Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle. Lift up your heads, O you gates; lift them up, you ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in!

Prayer:

  • Pray, as we enter into Holy Week, that in commemorating the Lord’s entry into the city for our salvation, we will follow in Christ’s footsteps. Pray that because we are made, in the grips of grace, partakers of the cross, we may have a share in the Lord’s Resurrection and life.
  • Pray as we remember that even though in our weakness we fail not only our students but the entire campus, we will be revived through the passion of Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with us in the unity of the Holy Spirit.
  • Pray, as we walk the way of the Cross together and move forward without fear into Our Savior’s eternal purposes for Whitworth University, that we may trust in God alone.
  • Pray as we look and listen this week that the Lord will have mercy upon us as we stand in the shadow of the Cross, that all before him will have repentant hearts, and that the Messiah’s Resurrection light will shine upon us.
  • Pray that our students’ faith will increase and that they will become people who place their hope in the Lord; ask that God will graciously hear the petitions of those who call upon their Lord.
  • Pray as our student-athletes continue to travel and participate in sports during the month of April.
  • Pray as we gather April 3 for community praise and worship and to hear Campus Pastor Mindy Smith’s homily, “Healing a Deaf Mute,” from the miracles of Mark’s Gospel.
  • Pray for students as they gather April 3 at Hosanna in praise and worship.
  • Pray as the Catholic Student Fellowship leads us in the Stations of the Cross on April 7 at 7 p.m.
  • Pray as we gather April 5 for Holy Communion, partaking together of the Lord’s Supper.
  • Pray that as Good Friday, April 6, approaches we will set aside time to read through the gospel narratives of Jesus’ last week and to pray, reflect, and participate in worship services to commemorate Jesus’ crucifixion.
  • Pray for safe travel as students leave and return during the three-day Easter Break.
  • While we celebrate Whitworth’s designation as a Best Christian Workplace, please pray for our wisdom and discernment as we identify challenges and work to improve in the areas of those challenges.
  • Pray for Initiative 5.2 of Whitworth 2021, “Courage at the Crossroads,” as faculty and staff work to expand experiential learning opportunities for students to serve the community, to participate in off-campus initiatives, and to apply educational skills in workplace settings.

Thanksgiving:
Lord, we are so grateful for your son, Jesus Christ, who was crucified and who died for us, so that we might live for you. Thank you, Lord, that through the cross we have been healed and made whole; because of your faithfulness, we are faithful unto life. We are redeemed and healed by your blood and united by your covenant of peace. In Jesus’ death, we have found life as we celebrate the Resurrection of your son.
