The Humble Jesus is the Powerful I AM

Dec. 4-11

Scripture:
John 18:4-8

This week we pray:

  • For students to have strength and discipline through this last week of classes and finals preparation and that they would look to God as their center and source.
  • For the students who serve in residence halls as resident assistants, campus ministry coordinators, Cultural Diversity Advocates and ASWU senators, that God would give them wisdom, strength, affirmation and extravagant love as they continue to fulfill their important roles on campus.
  • For all the participants in the Christmas Festival Concerts in Spokane as Whitworth musicians share their gifts and invite the local community into this Advent season through the beauty of music.
  • For Monday’s Overflow gathering hosted by students and faculty from the theology department as Pat Sittser, Mark Baird and Jayme Koerselman lead the discussion on faith and mental health, “Where is God in the darkness?”
  • For those who are participating and performing in A Festival of Short Plays on Wednesday, a time of excitement and enjoyment as students display their talents.
  • With gratitude for Professor of History Arlin Migliazzo and Director of International Education and Special Programs for the Off-Campus Programs Office Sue Jackson as they both celebrate their retirements after 30-plus years of service to God and students at Whitworth.
  • For Campus Worship this week:
    • Tuesday’s Chapel Community Worship as Dean of Spiritual Life and Campus Pastor Forrest Buckner concludes our rich 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, particularly as it moves to the Multipurpose Room in the HUB as a way to help make AWAKE more accessible to students who are just beginning their exploration of Christian faith.
    • Thursday’s Chapel Community Worship gathering for music and the Lord’s Supper.
    • Monday, Wednesday and Friday reflective Morning Prayer services.

Thanksgiving:
Lord, we are deeply grateful that you are the powerful I AM. No one is like you. You are great, and your name is mighty in power. Your power created the Earth, and your wisdom founded the world. We are thankful that whatever happens in our lives and our world today, we know that you are the powerful I AM who came to us as the humble Jesus. Amen.
