I AM the Vine

Nov. 27-Dec. 4

Scripture:
John 15:1-17

This week we pray for:

  • Students as they return from the Thanksgiving holidays, that they are refreshed and ready to finish the semester well.
  • Students to be formed by God’s Spirit as they study and learn. Instead of just seeking a specific grade, we pray that students would grow in their vocation and purpose as they engage with their studies.
  • Faculty to have the strength, creativity and genuine care they need to continue in their good work of providing an education of mind and heart through the end of the semester.
  • The annual Christmas Festival Concert in Seattle as Whitworth choirs and musicians share their gifts and invite people into this Advent season through the beauty of music.
  • Students who have been struggling with physical or mental illness, that they would find healing and peace along with the ability to complete their necessary work.
  • Campus Worship this week:
    • Tuesday’s Chapel Community Worship as Campus Pastor Mindy Smith 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.
  • The Faculty Scholarship Forums as they continue to provide grass-roots support for faculty scholarship, serving as a forum for presentation of research and growth in collegial relationships.
  • Why Whitworth program visitors, as prospective students and their families visit campus, that God would provide for them in their discernment process and that God would bring to Whitworth the group of incoming students that God wants here.

Thanksgiving:
Lord, we are so thankful that by your grace, we have become a true branch on the vine that is you, a branch that bears much fruit by your grace. Give us the strength to abide in you and thus be a fruitful branch for the good of the world out of the abundance of your grace. Amen.
