Prayer Draws Us Closer to Jesus

Oct. 12-19

“…[S]o that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love…may know the love of Christ that surpasses all knowledge.”
Ephesians 3:17-19

This week we pray for…

  • our students. In these next two weeks, before Fall Break, exams, major papers and project assignments all come due, increasing the pressure on students to study diligently while balancing multiple priorities. May our students know God’s pace as they work.
  • our faculty and staff who have direct contact with students. They also feel increased pressure during this time. May they be able to prioritize the multiple tasks before them with a keen sense of discernment, and may they be attuned to the intellectual, relational and spiritual needs of students.
  • Tuesday’s Community Worship Service, as Campus Pastor Mindy Smith shares with us from the Book of Ephesians 3:1-20. Paul calls Christ-followers to move into action in our communities, our relationships, and in our own lives. Please pray also for Hosanna, as students gather for praise, fellowship, and authentic worship.
  • Tuesday’s General Education Forum, as professors Nathan King and Tony Clark discuss the benefits of our current general-education curriculum, as well as ways in which curriculum can be changed to address students’ education needs in the 21st century.
  • Wednesday’s Wisdom Talk, as instructors share with students their own vocational journeys.
  • Thursday’s Faculty Scholarship Forum as Fulbright Scholar Florin Mihoc, from our School of Business, presents research on the importance of strategic account management and relational marketing. May this gathering remind the faculty once again of the gifted teachers who serve our students with such wisdom, insight, and passion.

Lord, we are so thankful that your love dwells within us through Christ. Help us to love one another as Christ loves us. As your love blossoms within us, deepen our resolve to be your faithful witnesses to the gospel on this campus and in the world. Amen!
