God’s Plans for Us

Jan. 25-Feb. 1

Scripture:
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD: “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
Jeremiah 29:11

This week we pray for…

  • our students, who will conclude their Jan Term coursework Monday and Tuesday, with papers due and exams to take. May they complete the academic term with strength and confidence.
  • faculty members who bear the responsibility of grading Jan Term’s final requirements and who then turn to their final preparations for spring semester, which begins next week. This is the tightest transition in the entire academic year, and faculty members need strength to complete their multiple tasks well.
  • students and faculty who’ll return to Spokane from faraway Jan Term courses. We ask that their travels will be safe and that they will quickly and easily make the cultural readjustments to being back within the Whitworth community.
  • students who may be having academic or financial struggles; we ask that their needs will be met and that the stress they feel will be lifted from them. May they experience the support of faculty, staff and their fellow students.
  • new students who are traveling to Spokane this week to begin their studies at Whitworth. May they experience peace during this transitional week and may they feel a sense of welcome as they arrive on campus.
  • the Whitworth community. We ask that we may continue to be reminded of God’s presence in the midst of the significant challenges many people face during this time.

Thanksgiving:
Lord, we know that you hold the future, and we are so thankful that your plans are for us to succeed. Sometimes we don’t know what success looks like from Your perspective, but we are grateful that you place a sphere of protection around each and every one of us. Because you love us, we have hope for a prosperous future, even when we struggle in our present circumstances. Thank you for always being with us by the presence of your Holy Spirit. We are grateful. Amen!
