Your Kingdom Come: The Book of Revelation for Today

Feb. 5-11

Revelation 1:2-3

This week we pray for:

  • Students as they enter their first full week of classes of the spring semester, that they would be ready to learn, work hard and engage well with their courses.
  • Community, belonging and meaningful friendships for all students, particularly for those transfer students who are starting at Whitworth this semester.
  • Faculty as they begin the new semester, for deepened love for students, passion for learning and creativity to teach well.
  • Winter athletics teams as they engage in postseason competitions this week and in the coming weeks. We pray for perspective, unity, safety, and growth into the men and women God made them to be.
  • The first week of our campus worship programs of the semester:
    • Chapel Community Worship on Tuesday and Thursday as faculty, staff and students gather to grow in their faith and in the knowledge of Christ as we explore our theme for the semester, “Your Kingdom Come: The Book of Revelation for Today.” We pray for Forrest Buckner, dean of spiritual life and campus pastor, as he preaches on Tuesday. We also pray for Thursday’s service as we come together to sing and share Holy Communion. This Thursday we pray especially for the commissioning service for our student teachers as we celebrate the ways that we can serve God in various vocations.
    • Tuesday night’s Hosanna service, a student-led gathering providing space for worship through music, prayer and reflection.
    • Wednesday night’s student-led AWAKE gathering, as students explore who God is, who they are, and why that even matters and invite others to do the same.
    • Monday, Wednesday and Friday reflective Morning Prayer services.
  • The Faculty Scholarship Forum lunch and presentation gatherings that will occur this semester and begin this week. We pray that God would be equipping and empowering scholar-teachers here at Whitworth who contribute to the common good of society and glorify God through their scholarship.
  • Friday’s 21st Anniversary for the Gospel Explosion led by Coordinator for Diversity, Equity and Inclusive Ministries Stephaine Nobles-Beans, as local choirs and praise teams from Whitworth and the Spokane community gather in the chapel for an exuberant night of praise.

Lord, we are so thankful that we have the opportunity to read your Word. Thank you for the promise that we are blessed to hear it and obey it, for the time is drawing near. May we worship you alone this week, and may you lead us in love for others by your grace. Amen.
