True Repentance Before God

Feb. 27-March 5

Psalm 32

This week we pray for…

  • our students to grow in wisdom and knowledge, becoming more fully the people whom God made them to be, participating in God’s loving and redeeming purposes in the world.
  • Whitworth students who are struggling with mental illness. We ask that they would know God’s care and love. We also pray for the Whitworth Counseling Center staff, asking that God would give them wisdom and compassion in their care for students.
  • the President’s Coffee gathering, where staff convene to build community, to celebrate staff members’ anniversaries, and to be updated on what’s happening at Whitworth by President Beck A. Taylor.
  • Faculty Assembly, as faculty members gather to engage in their shared governance responsibilities and to hear a campus update from President Taylor.
  • our Pirate athletes. As spring sports begin and as the men’s basketball team moves into NCAA tournament play, we ask that our student-athletes will work hard, grow in maturity, and enjoy their journey.
  • Tuesday’s presentation and discussion on the film Beyond the Color of Fear. Cast members Victor Lewis and Hugh Vasquez will lead us in a discussion about the intersection of race, inclusion, privilege, and gender, and we pray that God would continue to nurture our growth as a community that embodies his reconciling love in all its relationships.
  • Chapel Community Worship, on Tuesday, as Coordinator for Diversity, Equity and Inclusive Ministries Stephaine Nobles-Beans, teaches in our series, “Encountering Jesus in the Psalms: Living Honestly with God”; Tuesday’s student-led Hosanna worship event; Wednesday’s student-led AWAKE ministry gathering; and Thursday’s Chapel Community Worship gathering for music and communion. We also pray that our Ash Wednesday service will be the beginning of a meaningful season of preparation and devotion for all who observe Lent.

We thank you, Lord, for your abundant grace revealed in Jesus Christ. Thank you that when we turn to you, you embrace us, forgive us, and empower us to walk in the freedom of your love. Thank you that as we receive your love in Jesus, you use us to share that love with others, particularly the vulnerable and the forgotten among us. Thank you for your amazing grace!
