Do Not Worry

March 15-22

Scripture:
“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes?”
Matthew 6:25

During this seventh week of the semester we pray for…

  • students, as they complete midterm exams, assignments, and papers before spring break; we ask that that they will have discipline in their studies and wisdom in their learning.
  • Tuesday’s community worship as Campus Pastor Mindy Smith preaches from the Sermon on the Mount, Matthew 6:25-34, on the importance of trusting God in all circumstances.
  • the university’s Wednesday Endowed Poetry Reading, with Tod Marshall, professor of English at Gonzaga University. Marshall will read from his recently published third book, Bugle. May the Whitworth community grow in appreciation for the beauty of the written and spoken word through this presentation.
  • Associate Professor of History Patrick Van Inwegen’s Nonviolent Defense and Conflict Resolution class will open its public display on global military spending and alternative ways to use military funding. This presentation, open through April 2, will aid the Whitworth community in reflecting on the use of human and financial resources as tools for faithful stewardship.
  • Thursday’s Women’s History Month panel on significant women in the history of Whitworth will be presented as a part of the university’s 125th-anniversary celebration. May the community listen with open minds and receptive hearts as we honor those leaders who have contributed to the development of Whitworth’s mind-and-heart Christian mission.
  • Friday’s “Why Whitworth” Day, as more prospective students and their families visit the university. As the May 1 decision deadline draws near for final decisions about enrollment, we ask for each applicant to have clear discernment as s/he chooses the best school for him or her. May God guide them all.
  • the Whitworth University Choir as they travel along the West Coast all next week, March 21-28, on their spring concert tour. May they experience travelling safety, deepening community, and deep joy as they perform.
  • Spring Break travel safety for all the members of the Whitworth community as we journey in service to others and to seek renewal for our minds, bodies and spirits.

Note: There will be no On Bended Knee during Spring Break, March 21-28. Please look for the next posting on Monday, March 30. Thank you for your continued prayer for the Whitworth community.

Thanksgiving:
Lord, we are so thankful that we can bring our worries to you. We are grateful that your promises are trustworthy and that you provide everything we need. Help us to trust you fully to take care of us, and let us never doubt that you are our loving Provider.
