Tasting the Goodness of the Lord: Growing Alongside Peter

Feb. 1-7

1 Peter 2:2-3
Like newborn infants, long for the pure, spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow into salvation – if, indeed, you have tasted that the Lord is good.

This week we pray for…

  • the entire Whitworth community. We ask God’s blessing as spring semester begins and the campus celebrates Opening Convocation and Founder’s Day on Feb. 4.
  • new students, including transfers and international students, who are just beginning their academic careers at Whitworth.
  • our residence life staff as they welcome students returning from Jan Term break and as they continue to cultivate a culture of welcome, community, and fun in the residence halls this spring semester.
  • our faculty as they enjoy the Faculty Scholarship Recognition Luncheon, which celebrates faculty scholarly accomplishments during the previous academic year.
  • the prayer service for faculty, staff and students that takes place 7:30-7:50 a.m. Monday, Wednesday, and Friday mornings. This service resumes with Director of Campus Worship Ben Brody leading the community in scripture-reading, silence, prayer and song.
  • our men’s and women’s basketball teams as they play Whitman and Pacific, our track and field team as they compete in Pullman, and our men’s and women’s swimming teams as they prepare for the upcoming championships. We ask that they continue to grow as men and women of faith and character through their competition and preparation.
  • Friday’s memorial service for Associate Professor of Psychology Adrian Teo, our dear friend and colleague. Whitworth will celebrate Adrian’s life, remember his legacy, mourn his loss, and affirm the hope of the resurrection that we have in Jesus Christ. Let us continue to remember the Teo family in our prayers.
  • our faculty and staff as they welcome students back to campus. We ask that they would have eyes to see these students as God does, energy to serve them well, guidance to lead wisely, and compassionate hearts to love them in the way of Jesus.

Lord, we praise you for your faithfulness to us, most clearly revealed in Jesus Christ. Help us to count our blessings and to be assured of your love. Thank you for giving us the ability to demonstrate your goodness, Father. Please bestow your grace on us today to help us manifest that goodness in the world.

    In next week’s On Bended Knee, could you mention prayer for our 14 CASP (Central America Study and Service Program) students as they begin their three months of study and internships in Nicaragua?
