The Lord’s Prayer

March 1-8

“This, then, is how you should pray: Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name….”
Matthew 6:9-13

This fifth week of the semester we pray for…

  • our students. As they face the challenges of each day, we ask that the word of God and the reality of Jesus’ presence will provide hope.
  • for the many members of the Whitworth community – faculty, staff, students, board members and their families – that continued healing will come to each one suffering with serious illness.
  • President Beck Taylor as he preaches at Tuesday’s Community Worship on the section of the Sermon on the Mount dealing with the Lord’s Prayer.
  • Tuesday’s meeting of The Whitworth Foundation’s board of directors. Please ask that each board member will have the wisdom to steward the resources entrusted to him or her to support the university’s Christian mission.
  • William H. Struthers, Professor of Psychology at Wheaton, who will lecture on “Digital Sexuality and Christian Faithfulness,” on Wednesday. Struthers, who is the author of Wired for Intimacy: How Pornography Hijacks the Male Brain, will explore Christian narratives about sexuality that cultivate faithful relationships.
  • Thursday’s Community Worship, as Whitworthians gather for reflection and prayer and to celebrate the Lord’s Supper.
  • our Missions Fair, Thursday and Friday, as representatives of 24 mission agencies interact with students, staff and faculty about opportunities to serve the cause of the Gospel throughout the world.
  • Whitworth Theatre’s spring production, These Shining Lives. Please pray that our student actors will find joy and fulfillment in the expression of their God-given talents.

Gracious God, we are so thankful that we can come to you in prayer in our times of need. Jesus’ model of prayer guides us in our petitions as we seek your will to be done in our lives, in this community, and in our world, just as it is in heaven. We know that when we pray you will hear and answer according to your gracious will. Teach us to pray with humility and boldness as our trust in you deepens through the exercise of prayer.
