The Suffering Messiah

March 7-13

Scripture:
Mark 8:27-38

This week we pray for…

  • our students to find purpose in their studies and extracurricular activities.
  • the student leadership-selection process, as student life selects next year’s residence assistants; we ask that God would call forward students who can play this important role in the dorms.
  • wisdom for Whitworth administrators as they guide the university to continue to be a place where students grow to honor God, follow Christ, and serve humanity.
  • campus worship gatherings this week, including Tuesday and Thursday community worship, Hosanna, and AWAKE.
  • the missions fair, as we welcome representatives from various Christian organizations to talk with students about their work sharing the gospel around the world; we ask that God would inspire students to join in Christ’s ministry of reconciliation both locally and abroad.
  • The Whitworth Theatre spring production, Enchanted April. We ask that the students, staff, and faculty involved would have fun, would grow in community, and would present the show as a worshipful expression of their gifts and passions.
  • Chap Clark, professor and chair of the Fuller Seminary Youth, Family, and Culture Department, as he presents a lecture for the Whitworth and Spokane communities and teaches a youth-ministry-training day, hosted by the Whitworth Office of Church Engagement, for Spokane youth ministers.
  • the Whitworth students who are so ably representing Whitworth in national competitions, including the men’s basketball team, the forensics team, and members of the swimming teams and the indoor track and field team.
  • this year’s final Honors Colloquium, as we welcome prospective students and their families to learn more about Whitworth; we ask that God will guide them in this college search process.
  • the celebration of George F. Whitworth’s 200th birthday, with thanksgiving for the university’s founder and for the gathering of Whitworth alumni to affirm Whitworth’s rich heritage and exciting future.

Thanksgiving:
Lord, we thank you for being our Messiah, “Christ the Anointed One,” and for suffering for us because you love us. We thank you that one day you will return in glory to set all things right. In the meantime, may all the world come to know and trust you, our Lord and Messiah.
