The Gospel of the Messiah

Sept. 14-20

Scripture:
“Paul, an apostle—sent not from men nor by a man, but by Jesus Christ and God the Father, who raised him from the dead— and all the brothers and sisters with me, To the churches in Galatia: Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ, who gave himself for our sins to rescue us from the present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father, to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.”
Galations 1:1-5

This week we pray for…

  • faculty and students as they begin a new year of classes. We ask that they would have the wisdom, focus, and energy to teach and learn well to God’s glory this year.
  • The first week of campus ministry programs for this year:
    • Chapel Worship: On Tuesdays we gather to share the Word of the Lord as Dean of Spiritual Life Forrest Buckner speaks to us from the Book of Galatians, and on Thursday we gather for the Lord’s Supper and to commission this year’s student-teachers.
    • Hosanna, a student-led Tuesday-evening ministry that seeks to create a space to invite students to reflect and worship.
    • AWAKE, a student-led fellowship group that meets on Wednesday evenings and seeks to introduce students to Jesus and to help them grow with Christ.
  • members of the Whitworth faculty and staff community who are struggling with new and ongoing health concerns.
  • the Class of 2019 – nearly 600 freshmen and nearly 700 new students (including transfers) overall.
  • the safety and success of our admissions team as they travel all over the country. We ask God to call together the students whom he would have them recruit for the Whitworth Class of 2020.
  • our current students. We ask that they will use their wisdom and knowledge to make decisions about their classes and their majors.
  • our student-athletes as they participate in sports on and off campus and continue to display the Whitworth Pirate spirit.
  • Kathryn Lee, Ph.D. (Political Science) as she presents the 2015 Constitution Lecture: “From Selma to Shelby County v. Holder: Voter Suppression in 21st Century America”.

Thanksgiving:
Lord, thank you for the Gospel of the Messiah, who brings us grace and peace. We are grateful that He gave himself for us and delivered us from our sins so that we may walk in total victory. We can be confident and assured that the Deliverer has come, to bring us this Gospel, this good news. And we are so thankful.
