Search Me, O God, and Know Me!

Oct. 1-7

Psalm 139:14
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful – I know that full well.

This week we pray…

  • that as the pressure of academic life begins to mount, students will gain wisdom from their studies, that they will have the discipline to take full advantage of their learning, and that they will develop a vocational vision for the application of their studies to the needs of our world.
  • for Faculty Scholarship Forum as the faculty gathers Oct. 1 for relational connections and intellectual stimulation.
  • for Faculty Assembly, which also meets Oct. 1, to allow faculty to deliberate on their stewardship of the curriculum as they teach our students.
  • for Michael Cassidy, founder (in 1962) of African Enterprise, who will lecture at Whitworth Oct. 1, and Ajith Fernando, national director of Youth for Christ in Sri Lanka since 1977, who will speak to our community Oct. 2.
  • for Beck Taylor as he hosts a President’s Coffee Oct 2. This is a time for staff to meet with our president, to meet new employees, to listen to updates on the university, and to share in a devotional.
  • for Beck as he preaches from Psalm 139 in chapel Oct. 2, and for our community as it comes together for prayer and communion on Oct. 4.
  • for all the alums who will return to the campus for Homecoming Weekend, Oct. 5-6, especially as they gather for worship, with Ron Pyle preaching, on Saturday morning. May their homecoming be a time of fellowship and renewal.
  • for Initiative 1.3 of the Courage at the Crossroads 2021 Vision and Strategic Plan, as Whitworth supports rich learning opportunities across the curriculum that challenge students to explore and develop connections between their worldview convictions, their academic studies, and their vocational discernment.
  • for Geneva Gay , internationally renowned for her scholarship in multicultural education, who will speak Oct. 4 on “Choosing Course Content for an Inclusive Mind and Heart Education.”

Almighty and eternal God, who created this world and all of us, we thank you for the blessing of life. May we consider every human life sacred, for you have created us in your image.
