Comfort: Holding Fast to Jesus in Suffering

Feb. 26-March 5

Revelation 3:7-13

This week we pray:

  • For the local churches that students attend around Spokane, that God would bless those churches and provide meaningful worship, service and community for students attending them.
  • For students to grow in the skills of deep intellectual inquiry along with courageous and civil engagement with people who hold different perspectives than they do.
  • For safe travels, joy, community and growth as the men and women God made them to be for student-athletes, forensics competitors and School of Business competitors who will be representing Whitworth University.
  • With gratitude for the Central American Study and Service Program (CASP) founded by Professor Ron Frase nearly four decades ago. We pray for Professor Lindy Scott and the 12 students who are currently in Nicaragua for three months serving God and their neighbors through internships with faith-based ministries.
  • For the Bruner-Welch Lecture by Kimlyn Bender, “Real Faith in a Virtual World: Christian Discipleship in a Digital Age,” that God would use this lecture to equip Whitworth community members with skills in how to be faithful to Christ in our digitally saturated times.
  • For the 10th annual Leonard A. Oakland Film Festival, as community members join together to think, learn and grow through the medium of film.
  • For campus worship this week:
    • Chapel Community Worship on Tuesday and Thursday as the faculty, staff and students gather in worship and as Stephaine Nobles-Beans continues our series on Revelation by preaching 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.
    • Wednesday night’s student-led AWAKE gathering, as students explore who God is, who they are and why that even matters.
    • Monday, Wednesday and Friday’s reflective Morning Prayer services.
  • For this weekend’s Honors Colloquium, as prospective honors students (and their families) visit campus and get to know Whitworth. We pray for strength, love and the joy of God’s Spirit for the admissions staff and for God’s provision for Whitworth for the incoming fall class of students.

Lord, we are thankful that you alone hold the keys to eternal life. Hear our prayers for your church, that we will keep your Word and remain faithful, especially in the face of opposition. We are grateful as your people that we have influence in our communities to proclaim your Word, for your Word is full of grace and truth to all who will listen in these troubled times. We await your imminent return with expectancy and hope! Amen.
