“Redefining Sin”

Oct. 22-Oct. 29
Matthew 18:6-9

This week we pray for:

  • Students to build on the successes of the first half of the semester and to persevere in their academic or co-curricular responsibilities. We pray for wisdom, strength and the ability to say “yes” and “no” to the right things.
  • Students as they complete this week of classes and go on Fall Break, that they will find refreshment with family and friends. We pray for safe travel for those traveling and joyful rest for all.
  • Faculty as they engage in continued work of growth at the Faculty Development Day, engaging in intentional training and discussion while students are off on Fall Break.
  • Student athletes, for safe travel, meaningful community and character development as they give their all in their athletic endeavors.
  • Thursday’s “Inclusive University Classroom” lectures delivered by Maria del Carmen Salazar, including the evening lecture, “A Humanizing Pedagogy: Nurturing the Roses in the Concrete.” We pray that the annual lecture would help educators and community members grow in creating environments in which academic excellence is inclusive and transformative for every student.
  • Campus Worship this week:
    • Tuesday’s Chapel Community Worship as President Beck A. Taylor 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 outreach ministry gathering.
    • Thursday’s Chapel Community Worship gathering for music and the Lord’s Supper.
    • Monday, Wednesday and Friday reflective Morning Prayer services.


Lord of love, source of mercy and compassion, weave your vision for the world into the fabric of our lives. We confess our personal and corporate sin as we fail to love you and love our neighbors. By your grace, transform us to hate evil and to love goodness in increasing measure. May your kingdom come on Earth as in heaven, in us and in the world. Amen.
