Salvation Here and Now for All

March 4-10

Scripture:
For the Son of Man has come not to destroy lives, but to save them.
Luke 9:56

This week we pray for…

  • students to experience the saving work of God’s Spirit in their lives as they juggle coursework, pursue leadership positions for next academic year, plan for their summer work/internships, and practice spiritual disciplines during this Lenten season.
  • continued healing for staff, faculty, and students who have been sick, hospitalized, or recovering from surgery or other medical treatments. May they experience God’s saving work through the restoration of their bodies.
  • the George F. Whitworth Banquet, as we remember those who have, through their generosity, nurtured and sustained the Christian mission of the university.
  • family, friends, and colleagues of organizational-management student Michael Greg Stewart, who died Feb. 20. Pray for God’s comfort and strength to be with all those who knew and loved Michael.
  • chapel service on Tuesday, March 5, as Dean of Spiritual Life Terry McGonigal shares with us from Luke 9:51-56 and 10:1-13 Jesus’ commitment to bring salvation to the Samaritans, even if his disciples didn’t appreciate his grace for others. Pray too for Hosanna, as students meet Tuesday night for a time of reflection, prayer and worship, and for our service on March 7, during which we will share in holy communion, singing and reflection.
  • this year’s third Honors Colloquium, March 9-10, as potential Whitworth students and their parents pursue God’s wisdom as they make their college decisions for the 2013-14 academic year.
  • Whitworth Theatre’s main stage production of The Laramie Project, which opens on March 8. Pray for our actors, our crew, and our audiences as the university continues to pursue its commitment to courageous conversations.
  • Initiative 4.5 of the Courage at the Crossroads 2011-21 vision and strategic plan, as we commit ourselves to increasing intercultural competency, inclusiveness and diversity by recruiting and retaining a diverse student body.

Thanksgiving:
Lord, we thank you because you are our God, who is mighty to save. We are grateful for the relationship that we have with you – a relationship that strengthens us and our faith along this journey.
