Knowing God’s Plan

Jan. 11-17

Scripture:
Jeremiah 29:11
“For surely I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord; “plans for your welfare and not for your harm, to give you a future with hope.”

This week we pray for…

  • our students to build up their faith, to make time to pray and meditate upon the Word of God, and to share the good news of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
  • our students to continue to build healthy and trustworthy relationships during Jan Term, on campus or on trips away from campus.
  • our students to be confident that they will find their vocations and discern their calling as they move forward in the new year.
  • students who may be having financial struggles; we ask that their need will be met and the stress will be lifted from their shoulders.
  • with thanksgiving for our dedicated staff, who consistently work behind the scenes to make Whitworth a safe, beautiful, warm, and well-functioning place, even in the cold and dark days of Jan Term!
  • faculty members who are teaching in Jan Term; we ask that they will feel and exhibit strength, wisdom, and love as they work closely with students during this brief but time-intensive term.
  • the memorial exhibition of the work of Associate Professor Emeritus Pauline Haas, who died last year. We ask that the Cowles Gallery exhibition, which features Pauline’s paintings and drawings from the Whitworth Permanent Art Collection and highlights her impact on Whitworth students over the past 50 years, will be an inspiration to the community during its final month.
  • Wednesday’s Jan Term evening worship service. This student-led service, during which we’ll reflect upon the majesty and power of God, provides a time of reflection through praise, worship, and sharing God’s word.

Thanksgiving:
Lord we thank you each and every day. You know the plans for our lives when we don’t. We can rest in the knowledge that you know what is best for our lives, and we can be full of hope about our future in and with you.
