Called to Do a Great Work

Oct. 8-14

Scripture:
Isaiah 61:4
They shall build up the ancient ruins; they shall raise up the former devastations; they shall repair the ruined cities, the devastations of many generations. (NRSV)

This week we pray for…

  • our students as they strive to integrate the academic, relational, spiritual, and communal opportunities available to them here at Whitworth.
  • students in the Senate Debate Oct. 8-9 to experience the reality that “Courageous Conversations Create Caring Communities.”
  • that we will have the eyes to see the beauty of your creation through the eyes of artist Ben Frank Moss, ’59. His Mythical Landscape Art Exhibit, now on display in the Lied Center for the Visual Arts, will run through the fall.
  • Political Science Professor and Lindaman Chair Julia Stronks, who will preach in chapel Tuesday from Isaiah 61: From Exile to a Renewed Covenant: How Will We Live? We also pray for chapel on Thursday, as the community gathers for communion and worship.
  • the Whitworth University Board of Trustees as they meet Oct. 10, 11, and 12 to guide the future of the university. May they experience insight, wisdom, and unity as they deliberate together.
  • safe travel for Whitworth’s athletes as they travel this week for cross country, football, soccer, and volleyball. Ask that they run and play their best and that they always display the Whitworth Pirate spirit.
  • Initiative 2 of Whitworth’s Courage at the Crossroads 2011-21 Vision and Strategic Plan. Pray for the university as it seeks to equip its students to be inquisitive, creative and discerning thinkers who are able to address effectively the complex issues they face in the world.

Thanksgiving:
We thank you, Lord, for being a God of restoration, for rebuilding our brokenness, for renewing our minds, and for calling us to a holy vocation of following you in the renewal of our broken world. Restore us all!
