Hear My Words

April 9-15

Psalm 5:3 (NIV)
In the morning, O Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait in expectation.


  • Pray for students to find hope in God’s Word when they are in distress.
  • Pray for students to continue to make wise choices and to excel in their studies.
  • Pray for students to stand on the Word of God when there is confusion and complexity in their lives; ask that God will bring peace and comfort to them.
  • Pray for students involved in the long and sometimes difficult journey of learning, and ask that God’s quiet presence will give them courage.
  • Pray for students to let go of their fears and believe in the growth that is taking place in their lives, even though they may not see or feel it right now.
  • Pray for students to be compassionate in heart and full of energy and zeal as they seek to learn the ways of God’s world; ask that they will be lifted up as they work to understand how their gifts may serve God’s best purposes.
  • Pray as we gather for community worship April 10 to hear Assistant Vice President for Diversity and Intercultural Relations Larry Burnley share his homily, “Resurrection!,” as part our spring theme: miracles from Mark’s Gospel.
  • Pray as students gather in chapel on April 10 for praise and worship through Hosanna.
  • Pray that the jazz-combo concert on April 10 will be a success both for those who perform and for those who listen.
  • Celebrate with us as we gather for Holy Communion, April 12, during our praise and worship service in the chapel.
  • Pray for our Hawaiian students as they prepare for the 42nd annual luau April 14. Pray that participants will enjoy this event, which is always a joyous celebration of food and culture.
  • Pray for Initiative 5.3 of Whitworth 2021 “Courage at the Crossroads,” which supports interdisciplinary programs and scholarship that equip students and faculty to connect content and ideas from multiple fields, to expand boundaries of knowledge, and to address complex contemporary problems.

Lord, our lives can get so busy, but we thank you that you are our strength and that you have mercy upon us even when we neglect to give honor to you. Hear our voices as we make our requests known before you, Lord; we praise you for all the wonderful blessings that you pour out to us, and we ask you to help us slow down and find the time to be in your presence.
