The Son of Man Came to Seek Out and to Save the Lost
Today, salvation has come to this house, because this one also is a child of Abraham. For the Son of Man came to seek out and to save the lost.
This week we pray for…
- students to continue to pursue healthy relationships that will glorify God and display the love of Christ throughout the Whitworth community.
- safe travels for student who participate in varsity sports; we ask that they will display the best Whitworth Pirate spirit.
- prospective students and families as they visit make final decisions about selecting a university before the May 1 national deposit deadline. We also pray for our admissions staff as Whitworth hosts admissions events on campus throughout the next two weeks.
- our Tuesday chapel service, as Alan Mikkelson (Communication Studies) shares with us about relationships in Luke’s Gospel, Chapter 19:1-10. We pray, too, for Hosanna, as students gather Tuesday evenings for a time of prayer, praise and worship.

He is also the cofounder and board president of the Krista Foundation for Global Citizenship.
