Praying For You

Sept. 21-28

Scripture:
“I have not stopped giving thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers. I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know God better.”
Ephesians 1:17-18

This week we pray for…

  • students who are encountering life’s struggles as they try to focus on their studies. Some students are stressed by health issues, some by the lack of finances to sustain their Whitworth education, and still others by relational strains with family and friends.
  • our athletics coaches, who have prepared for this season of competition through recruiting and planning, strategizing and developing relationships with their athletes. May they know the presence of God’s Spirit as they lead, especially during competition and while they are travelling with their athletes.
  • Tuesday morning’s President’s Coffee, as Beck Taylor gathers with the staff and faculty for a time of reflection, information, support and encouragement. May these meetings deepen our sense of common purpose to the Christian mission of the university as each employee seeks to serve our students.
  • Tuesday’s Community Worship Service as Campus Pastor Mindy Smith preaches on Paul’s charge to recognize our identity in Christ and to follow Christ faithfully (from Ephesians 1:15-23).
  • small-group coordinators as they guide the development of their groups with various student populations. May each student in a small group have the freedom to be honest in discussions across a wide spectrum of faith perspectives while being supported by other students in the group.
  • Friday’s first Why Whitworth Day, as we welcome prospective students and parents to visit our campus and to consider Whitworth as their college choice. In the weeks and months of decision-making ahead, may God give every student a clear sense of direction.
  • YouthWorship, a seminar led by Associate Professor of Music Ben Brody and student leaders. This seminar, hosted by the newly established Whitworth Office of Church Engagement, is designed to provide reflection on the theology of worship as well as development of practical skills. May God give inspiration and a profound sense of responsibility to every worship leader who attends.

Thanksgiving:
Lord, we are grateful that, as a community, we pray for one another. We are thankful for your spirit of wisdom and revelation as we continue to build a relationship with you and have a deep desire to know you more deeply.
