Our Living Hope

May 9-15

Scripture:
1 Peter 1:3-9

This week we pray for…

  • our students as they finish their final full week of classes for the semester; we ask that each one will feel strength, focus, joy, and peace.
  • our seniors as they prepare for not only graduation, but for the next phase in their lives.
  • students who are performing in recitals. May they overcome their nerves, call upon their hours of preparation and hard work, and perform just as they had hoped they would.
  • Roger and Mohrlang and Ron Prosser as they retire – Roger after 38 years of teaching in the Whitworth Theology Department and Ron after 20 years of teaching for Whitworth Graduate Studies in Education. We give thanks for Roger and Dottie (who has also contributed so much to Whitworth) and for Ron, and for their years of dedication to the university.
  • our final campus worship gatherings of 2015-16, with thanks for this wonderful semester of worshiping God as a community. We are grateful for daily morning prayer; for Tuesday’s community worship and its sermon, by Dean of Spiritual Life Forrest Buckner, on Peter’s journey of tasting the goodness of the Lord; for Thursday community worship and celebration of communion in The Loop; and for Hosanna and AWAKE, with particular thanks to God for the amazing student leaders who have faithfully led these ministries this year.
  • the Whitworth community to grow in doing justice and loving mercy through inspiration from visiting guest speaker Tirus Karunga, director of Medical Ambassadors International for East Africa, as he shares with the Whitworth community regarding the health struggles of people in Ethiopia.

Thanksgiving:
Lord, there are times when we feel helpless, and there are times when we feel weak. We thank you for hope: hope for a better future, hope for a better life. We are thankful for the hope that you give us, through your love and kindness. We are so very grateful that we walk in your light, and that we have faith in you as our living hope.
