Conviction: Lukewarm No Longer

March 5-11

Revelation 3:14-22

This week we pray for:

  • Perseverance for students as they continue in their studies, that they would work hard and learn well, finding both their minds and hearts changed in the process.
  • Students to continue to discover meaning and purpose so that their knowledge, understanding and skills may help others for God’s glory.
  • Student Life staff members who provide vital extracurricular support and guidance for students. We pray for strength, wisdom and deep love as they work in their various roles with students and each other.
  • The Outdoor Recreation trips that continue to occur this week and throughout the semester. We pray for safety, rich community, a deepened appreciation for God’s creation and fun together.
  • The wonderful Sodexo staff who joyfully provide food for the campus community every day in the HUB. We pray for them to know God’s strength, joy and blessing as they serve.
  • For campus worship this week:
    • Chapel Community Worship on Tuesday and Thursday as the faculty, staff and students gather in worship and as President Beck A. Taylor 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.

Lord, you have created us with the capacity for deep affections – to love, to desire, to delight, to excite, to grieve, to laugh, to enjoy, to fear and to be thankful. You have made us this way so that we may glorify you by finding you as our fountain of everything, but at times our affections for you are grievously tepid while our selfish interests steam. Help us, Lord, not to be lukewarm but to be like a fountain of life sharing your goodness, mercy and amazing grace. May we be like a mighty geyser bursting forth into this world! Amen.
