I AM the Light of the World

Oct. 9-15

John 8:12; 1:1-5, 9; 3:19-20

This week we pray:

  • For all who are involved in the Whitworth fall theatre production of The Elephant Man, that they would know the joy of friendship, of seeking excellence and of serving a community through their art and work.
  • For family members who are coming to campus for Family Weekend. We pray for safe travels, great connections with their Whitworth student, and encouragement for students (especially for first-years!).
  • With gratitude for the generous, committed and gifted Whitworth Board of Trustees members as they engage in their fall meetings on campus. We pray for wisdom and unity in their important work of guiding the university to even greater flourishing and fulfillment of its mission into the future.
  • With gratitude for the new Nelson Garden that will be dedicated this week. We pray that that triangle across Hawthorne would be a place of learning, beauty and peace that points people to the goodness of God, our Creator.
  • For the health center and counseling center as our loving and professional staff provide care that helps guide students to the wholeness that God has intended. We pray for strength and love for their dedicated staff members as well.
  • For Whitworth Faculty Teaching Roundtable gatherings that occur twice a month, as faculty present and discuss innovative teaching methods to enhance teaching and learning at our institution.
  • For Campus Worship this week:
    • Tuesday’s Chapel Community Worship as Stephaine Nobles-Beans preaches in our series, “God Made Known: Jesus’ I AM statements in the Gospel of John”
    • Tuesday night’s student-led Hosanna worship gathering
    • Wednesday night’s student-led AWAKE ministry gathering
    • Thursday’s Chapel Community Worship gathering for music and the Lord’s Supper
    • Monday, Wednesday and Friday reflective Morning Prayer services.

Lord, we are so grateful that “You are the light of the world.” We are thankful knowing as we follow you, we do not have to walk in darkness, but will have the light of life. We pray that your light would shine through us to this world in increasing measure because of Jesus in us. Amen.
