“What I have I give you.” – God’s Using Peter to Heal

April 25-May 1

Acts 3:1-10

This week we pray for…

  • our students’ perseverance in their work, that they would not grow weary in doing good.
  • hope for students with mental-health struggles; we ask that they would find the help they need and that God would guide our counselors in their work by the Holy Spirit.
  • senior recitals and final music performances for students; we ask that you give them peace and allow them to find these culminating events full of worship and joy.
  • safe travels, humility, unity, joy, and an openness to God’s abiding presence for our athletes as they move toward the end of their spring seasons and, for many, into postseason opportunities.
  • campus worship gatherings this week: morning prayer on Monday, Tuesday and Friday; community worship on Tuesday and Thursday; Hosanna on Tuesday evening, and AWAKE on Wednesday evening.
  • Thursday community worship, as the African Children’s Choir, comprising 18 children from Uganda, leads us. We pray for the choir’s year-long tour and for the children’s families back in Uganda. And we give thanks for the college education that all of the choir members will receive as a result of their involvement in the choir.
  • this week’s President’s Coffee with President Beck A. Taylor, as we gather to meet new employees and recognize staff for their years of faithful service.
  • a lecture by Trish Morita-Mullaney, ’89, Ph.D., on being Asian American today, as well as lectures by the Rev. Will Gafney, Ph.D., on a womanist approach to the Hebrew scriptures.
  • our 46th annual Whitworth lu’au, as we celebrate Hawai’ian culture, dance, and (delicious) food.

Lord, help us to surrender to you everything that we are and everything that we are striving to be. We open the deepest parts of our hearts and invite your Holy Spirit to dwell inside of us. We are thankful that you have the power to heal from the inside out, and as we surrender to you all our hurt, pain, worry, doubt, fear and anxiety, we are confident that you will make us whole.
