Needing God’s Guidance

Jan. 23-29

Scripture:
Psalm 32:8 (NIV)
I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you and watch over you.

This week we pray for…

  • our students who are finishing up Jan Term, including final exams and projects. We ask that they will work hard, learn all that they can, and keep their coursework in proper perspective.
  • our students and faculty who will be returning from Jan Term trips this week. We pray that God will provide for them in the transition home, will be their comfort as they step away from the incredible communities they have formed over the past four weeks, and will guide them as they internalize and share all that they have experienced.
  • a safe Jan Term break and good choices by students preparing for spring semester.
  • student leaders who live in the residence halls and serve as resident assistants, cultural-diversity advocates, and small-group coordinators. We ask that they would serve in these roles with wisdom, energy, and love.
  • inspiration for our students to follow Christ and to let his light shine through them in words and actions.
  • our student-athletes and our forensics team members, who are competing this week. We pray for safe travels and we ask that these Whitworthians will continue to give their all while they grow in character and community.
  • faculty and staff to be strengthened as they prepare for spring semester and the many tasks that lie before them.
  • our president, Beck A. Taylor, as he leads Whitworth in 2017 and continues to look to the Lord for strength and wisdom.
  • the completion of our Jan Term worship and morning prayer, as our community seeks and worships the Lord together.

Thanksgiving:
Sometimes, Lord, it’s so hard to see. We squint and struggle to make sense of what you’re showing us. Help us know when you are guiding us, Lord, and when we are clutching at the wrong answers. Help us know how to follow your voice, how to love each other with your perfect love, how to continue to turn to you, and how to wait on you. Thank you for teaching us how to live in your care and respond to your voice.
