The Alpha and Omega: The Triune God as the Main Character of Revelation

Feb. 12-18

Revelation 1:4-8

This week we pray for:

  • Students to seek God first, to remember God’s goodness and love, and to recognize their need for Jesus.
  • Monday’s Conversation with Ali Noorani, the executive director of the National Immigration Forum, as he discusses developments in immigration reform in our country and as he is interviewed by President Beck A. Taylor. We pray for honest conversation, love for neighbor, openness to God’s direction, and unity in the midst of different opinions.
  • Campus worship this week:
    • Chapel Community Worship on Tuesday and Thursday as the faculty, staff and students gather in worship and as Forrest Buckner preaches on Tuesday. We also pray for Thursday’s service as we come together to sing, pray and celebrate the Lord’s Supper.
    • Tuesday night’s Hosanna service, as students gather for worship through music, prayer and reflection.
    • Ash Wednesday service as students, faculty and staff are invited to join the ancient tradition of the Church that begins the season of Lent, the 40 days leading to the celebration of Jesus’ death and resurrection.
    • Wednesday night’s student-led Awake gathering, as students explore who God is, who they are, and why that even matters in the HUB Multipurpose Room.
    • Monday, Wednesday and Friday reflective Morning Prayer services.
  • The Teaching Round Table gatherings that begin this week and occur throughout the semester as faculty share with each other innovative teaching methods to enhance teaching and learning.
  • Thursday’s Black History Month lecture as Dwayne Mack, Ph.D., speaks on “Black Women in Spokane: Emerging from the Shadows of Jim and Jane Crow.” We pray that God would lead us forward in awareness and action as ministers of reconciliation through Jesus.
  • Students learning about off-campus study opportunities for next year at the Off-Campus Programs Fair on Tuesday, that God would inspire them and open doors for them to grow in mind and heart by engaging in these experiences.
  • Students exploring opportunities for service and leadership at the Camp Fair on Wednesday, that they would know God’s leading and calling as they discern.
  • Thursday’s Student Leadership Fair, that God would raise up student leaders to serve, lead and grow through involvement in the many wonderful student leadership opportunities at Whitworth. We pray that God would raise up resident assistants, campus ministry coordinators, cultural diversity advocates, health education advocates, community engagement specialists and more for the 2018-19 school year.

Lord, we are thankful as we join together with our brothers and sisters across this campus to study Revelation; we pray that your Holy Spirit continues to be our guide. Soften our hearts to the gospel message and strengthen our wills to live as this book calls us to live. We are thankful that you are our Lord and King. Amen.
