Redefining Faithfulness

Oct. 1-Oct. 8
Matthew 7:21-28

This week we pray for:

  • Students as they continue to work hard in their studies. We pray for motivation, discipline and joy in learning.
  • Students who are struggling with mental health, that they would know God’s love and provision in this time. We also give thanks for our wonderful counselors in the counseling center and pray for strength, wisdom and love by God’s Spirit as they provide care and guidance for students.
  • Monday’s monthly faculty assembly as faculty members join together for their important communal governance work.
  • The Faculty Scholarship Forum, which occurs regularly through the semester, as Whitworth faculty share recent scholarship and receive feedback. We pray that Whitworth faculty could continue to contribute in greater and greater measure to the intellectual vitality of our university and world, in service to God, in love for neighbor and in pursuit of God’s truth.
  • The “Balance Your Bucs” program that helps equip students to handle money wisely, that God would use this week’s seminar and the various similar programs through the semester to equip our students to steward their money well and utilize it for God’s glory and service.
  • Campus worship this week:
    • Tuesday’s Chapel Community Worship as Forrest Buckner preaches in our series, “Righteousness Redefined: Jesus in the Gospel of Matthew.”
    • Tuesday night’s student-led Hosanna worship gathering.
    • Wednesday night’s student-led AWAKE ministry gathering.
    • Thursday’s Chapel Community Worship gathering for music and the Lord’s Supper.
    • Monday, Wednesday, and Friday reflective Morning Prayer services.
    • Mentor-led Life Groups as the 20 groups led by faculty and staff continue to meet for fellowship and encouragement.


Lord Jesus, teach us to be the servants you have called us to be. Help us to walk in humility and to stand firm in our faith no matter how difficult the road becomes. You are always faithful to us. Your Word shows us time and again that you are faithful. We confess that we are a faithless people at times. We are prone to wander; forgive us Lord. Teach us what it means to be faithful to you, to your Word and to your church because you are faithful to us. Give us steadiness to follow you in every aspect of our lives, big and small. Amen.
