Forgetting the Past, Looking to the Future

Jan. 4-10

Scripture:
Isaiah 43:18-19
Do not remember the former things, or consider the things of old. I am about to do a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.

This week we pray for…

  • students as they return from break and begin Jan Term classes, that they would be rejuvenated from their break and ready to engage in the learning and community opportunities that Jan Term affords.
  • students to grow deeper with Christ and continue to recognize God’s call on their lives during this Jan Term.
  • safety and rich experiences for students and faculty members who are on Jan Term study-abroad programs.
  • every student at Whitworth to feel included as they experience God’s specific love for them in a variety of ways.
  • student athletes, as they participate in various sports, to continue to display the Whitworth Pirate spirit, and to continue growing in maturity, in community, and with Christ through their athletic endeavors.
  • the student-led Jan Term Campus Worship Wednesday-evening service, a time of praise, worship and sharing the Word of God. Our theme is “Rejoicing in the Light of the World,” and this week we are exploring how we worship God in the everyday.
  • family, friends and students of Whitworth Associate Professor of Psychology Adrian Teo, who ended his earthly journey and battle with cancer on Christmas Day. With them, we rejoice in the hope of the resurrection while mourning the loss of a wonderful man. We pray for the Whitworth memorial service that will be held in early February.

Thanksgiving:
Lord, we are so grateful that we don’t have to remember the former things in our lives, but we can see that you make all things new. We thank you for new beginnings, and for all that you have for us in the coming year.
