Celebrating Christ’s Resurrection

April 5-12

Scripture:
“But the angel said to the women, ‘Do not be afraid; I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; for he has been raised, as he said. Come, see the place where he lay.’”
Matthew 28:5-7

This week we pray…

  • that as the pressure of the semester mounts after Spring Break, every member of the Whitworth community knows the peace and power that come through the Christian hope of Jesus’ resurrection from the dead.
  • for the president’s cabinet and for staff members and all others who are working diligently to prepare for next week’s board of trustees meeting.
  • for Faculty Assembly, on Monday, as our teachers gather to discuss ways in which they can continue to lift up and extend the Christian educational mission of the university.
  • for Tuesday’s President’s Coffee with Beck Taylor, a time for staff to meet with the president, meet new employees, listen to updates on the university, and share in a devotional.
  • for Community Worship, on Tuesday, as Kent McDonald shares with us from Matthew 7:7-14 on the privilege of expectant prayer and trusting in our gracious God to meet our needs with divine presence and provision.
  • for Matthew V. Wells, Ph.D., from the University of Kentucky, who will speak Tuesday on “Aesthetics, Culture, and Empire after the Han.” Professor Wells will explore medieval China from exhilarating new angles in comparison with Western notions of the Middle Ages and will discuss whether China has actually had what we consider to be a medieval period.
  • for the Whitworth Choir as the group presents its Spokane spring concert at the Martin Woldson Theater at the Fox, downtown. May these gifted students experience joy as they perform, using their God-given talents.

Thanksgiving:
Gracious God, we are so thankful that we can come to you and present our petitions. As we seek and find you, Lord, we appreciate the love that you have for us. During this Easter season, help us to know the hope of Christ’s Resurrection as we continue to rely upon you for our daily provision.
