Eating with the Pharisees: A Holistic Salvation for All Peoples

Oct. 31-Nov. 6

Scripture:
Luke 11:37-44

This week we pray for…

  • our students to be refreshed and energized as they return from Fall Break. We pray for hope, perseverance, and protection for them during the challenging November weeks as daytime shortens and the pace of academic life quickens.
  • the Whitworth Jazz Ensemble as they perform with saxophonist Branford Marsalis; we ask that they will appreciate Marsalis’ virtuosity and that they will know the joy of worshiping God through the great jazz music they prepare and present.
  • Whitworth’s debate and forensics teams as they prepare for their upcoming competitions. Please help them to grow in wisdom, character, leadership and community.
  • campus worship programs: Chapel Community Worship, with Kent McDonald preaching on Tuesday and a celebration of the Lord’s Supper together on Thursday; Hosanna on Tuesday night; and AWAKE on Wednesday night.
  • guest lecturer Fr. Josiah Trenham, Ph.D., as he provides an Orthodox appraisal of the Protestant faith for a generous, open and ecumenical ethos for all involved.
  • students attending the seminary fair, as they meet with seminary representatives and discern next steps.
  • the Whitworth community and Inclusive University Classroom visiting lecturer James Banks, Ph.D., as he lectures on “Diversity in America: Challenges and Opportunities for Educating Citizens in a Global Age.”
  • the Class of 2021, as our admissions staff works to share the riches of a Whitworth education with next year’s prospective freshmen.

Thanksgiving:
Lord we acknowledge the completed work of Your Son Jesus Christ in giving His life for us on the cross at Calvary, and we long to receive the forgiveness you have made freely available to us through this sacrifice. Thank you for coming into our lives. Take up residence in our hearts and be our Lord and our Savior. Thank you that because of your grace, our lives are transformed by your Spirit so we can love you and love our neighbors. Empower us to follow you faithfully all the days of our lives.
