I AM the Bread of Life

Oct. 16-22

John 6:35-58

This week we pray for:

  • The first of three parts of President Beck A. Taylor’s Colloquy on Civil Discourse this Thursday evening, in which Whitworth faculty Josh Leim, Kamesh Sankaran, Karen Peterson Finch and Lorna Hernandez Jarvis will engage in a dialogue that focuses on our abilities to speak the truth in love and with Christian commitment. The colloquy series addresses a clear contemporary need to grow in engaging in civil discourse across difference without demonizing opponents and exacerbating divisions.
  • Healthy and generative relationships for all students, in which students sharpen one another in God’s ways and spur one another on toward love and good deeds.
  • Campus worship this week:
    • Tuesday’s Chapel Community Worship as Forrest Buckner 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
  • Ongoing “Why Whitworth” one-day visits, as prospective students visit Whitworth. We pray for wisdom and peace for students and families, and we pray that God would provide for the Whitworth Class of 2022.
  • Monday’s second annual Genetic Engineering Symposium on Aging in America. As this symposium aims to accomplish, we pray that Whitworth’s pursuit of God’s truth would result in thoughtful leaders who witness to and participate in God’s Kingdom rule in every area of life and scholarship.
  • The many local churches in Spokane that students attend. We pray that students would find a worship home where they can connect with God, engage in intergenerational community, and be formed by God’s Spirit for the sake of the world.

Lord, we are deeply thankful that you are the “Bread of Life.” We gratefully acknowledge your presence with us. We are grateful that you strengthen us and that your word nourishes us, revives us and helps us to grow in our daily walk with you. May all the world find its sustenance and life in you, and lead us in how we can share your Bread with this hungry world. Amen.
