Called by the One Triune God

Sept. 7-13

Ephesians 4:1-6
As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called. One Lord, one faith, one baptism; One God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.

This week we pray for…

  • first-year students as they adjust to their first full week of college life. We ask that they find ways to persevere in their classes and also find time to rest.
  • our students to have spiritual comfort, guidance, courage and inspiration as they experience God’s faithfulness.
  • our residence halls and those who lead them. We ask that all students will feel welcomed and at ease in the activities taking place in their dorms as well as throughout the broader campus.
  • Sunday’s Catholic worship service, the Orientation Weekend service, and the final goodbyes for freshman parents.
  • Tuesday’s Plug-In-Picnic, as clubs and organizations give students the opportunity to become involved throughout the Whitworth community.
  • Wednesday’s multicultural reception in Hendricks Hall, as students locally and globally gather to welcome new and returning students to our campus.
  • Wednesday evening’s ordination and installation of Dean of Spiritual Life Forrest Buckner into the ministry of the Presbyterian Church (USA).
  • Thursday’s Opening Convocation, as Whitworth President Beck Taylor welcomes students, faculty and staff to ask God’s blessings on the academic year.
  • our student-athletes, as they prepare to play the many sports available on our campus, and for their safety as they travel.
  • Friday’s Church Ministry Fair, where church representatives will come to know our students and will share about the vision and mission of their churches, giving students opportunities for internships and collegiate fellowship.

Loving God, we give you thanks for the gift of this new academic year. Thank you for each student who walks the Whitworth campus. Thank you for loving them and calling them closer to you. May this be an academic year in which every student knows the unity of being called and loved by the One Lord, One Spirit, and One Father. Amen.
