A Prayer For You

Sept. 14-21

Scripture:
“I pray that, according to the riches of God’s glory, you may be strengthened in your inner being with power through the Spirit, and that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith, as you are rooted and grounded in love.”
Ephesians 3:16-17

This week we pray for…

  • student ambassadors who help in sharing the Whitworth story with prospective students/parents – tour guides, dorm hosts, callers, admissions office assistants, and students who help with our visitation programs. May God guide every prospective student for the fall 2015 incoming class.
  • students to have wisdom, understanding and knowledge in making life-giving decisions in their use of time and resources, in their studies and recreation, and in their relationships on campus and with the Spokane community.
  • the department assistants in each academic office, who facilitate the instructional process through their support of the faculty. May each of them be assured of the essential role they play in Whitworth’s mind-and-heart mission as they go about their work.
  • Monday, Wednesday, and Friday morning’s prayer services as Director of Campus Worship Ben Brody will lead morning prayer from 7:30-7:50 a.m. in the chapel. Morning prayer is an opportunity all faculty, staff, and students to begin the day with scripture, silence, prayer and song. The simple service, based on the Book of Common Prayer, invites us to join Christians around the world as we lift up our hearts to the Lord.
  • the fall service-learning fair, on Monday, as it provides an opportunity for students and faculty to connect with local service agencies that assist a variety of populations within Spokane and surrounding areas. These connections can lead to academic service-learning opportunities, as well as to general ongoing group and individual service relationships.
  • Community Building Day, Tuesday morning, as Whitworth faculty, staff and students engage in meaningful service activities throughout Spokane County. May this effort extend Whitworth’s emphasis on community into Spokane as we establish and strengthen relationships through our service.
  • Hosanna, Tuesday night; Awake, Wednesday night, and our Thursday morning Community Chapel Communion Service, which serve to provide opportunities for spiritual renewal.

Thanksgiving:
Lord, we thank you that the love of Christ dwells within us. We are grateful that we have the opportunity to share that love in tangible ways on our campus and in the community. As we experience your love for us, may we learn to share that love on campus and in the community. In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
