The Evil Triad: The Dragon and the Two Beasts

April 16-22

Revelation 12-13

This week we pray:

  • For students to know God’s strength in their studies, God’s love in their living communities, and God’s call in their acts of service toward others.
  • For Monday’s third and final installment of the President’s Colloquy on Civil Discourse, as plenary speaker Erica Salkin (Communication Studies), and discussants Kathy Lee (Political Science), Mike Ingram (Communication Studies) and Will Kynes (Theology) present on the topic, “How Free Should Free Speech Be?” We pray that the Whitworth community could grow in speaking civilly and constructively across differences, for the good of the Whitworth community and for the good of the world.
  • For the annual Gordon Jackson Conference on Media Law & Ethics, as former Washington Times reporter Julia Duin addresses modern media ethical challenges through a Christian lens, particularly engaging with the Oscar-nominated movie The Post. We pray that God would use the event to equip Whitworth and Spokane community members to serve the common good through the media.
  • For the Northwest Entrepreneur Competition collaborative student startup competition hosted at Whitworth on Tuesday. As students engage in the exercise of implementing their innovative ideas for new businesses, we pray that they would grow in hearing God’s call on their lives to honor God, follow Christ and serve humanity by stewarding and developing their business skills and ideas.
  • For all of the senior music majors giving their senior recitals over this week and the coming weeks. We pray for peace, joy, gratitude, hard work and a great sense of accomplishment as they present.
  • For Spokane’s 22nd annual African American Graduation Celebration hosted at Whitworth on Saturday, for joy, community and gratitude for all the wonderful community members who are graduating and those celebrating the graduates.
  • With gratitude for the wonderful library and academic support staff who equip students to find and utilize the resources they need for learning well. We pray for wisdom, joy and love as they do their work.
  • For campus worship this week:
    • Chapel Community Worship on Tuesday and Thursday as the faculty, staff and students gather in worship and as Kent McDonald preaches in our series on Revelation on Tuesday. We also pray for Thursday’s service as we come together to worship God and to celebrate Communion together.
    • 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.

Heavenly Father, we thank you that even though evil powers in our world stand in opposition to you and your kingdom, that we know the Lamb who was slain and has conquered all evil. We thank you for your strength given by your Spirit to stand in opposition to the evil powers of political and economic idols that beckon to us in the world. Strengthen us today that we could live as faithful witnesses opposing evil, even if that is costly for us, because we know that we will receive a white robe from the Lamb of God in the end.
