Redefining Forgiveness

Oct. 29-Nov. 5
Matthew 18:23-35

This week we pray for:

  • Safety and continued refreshment for students as they return from Fall Break, particularly that they would be ready and open to engage in all that God has for them in the second half of the semester.
  • Students’ strength in mind, body, soul and spirit and for boldness to share their faith in love and compassion.
  • All student athletes, especially the winter sport athletes as they begin competitions. We pray particularly that God would continue to raise up and encourage Christian leaders on every team who desire to see their teammates grow closer to Jesus. We also pray for a successful Pirate Night as Whitworth athletics supporters gather for a night of celebration and vital fundraising.
  • Faculty and staff for continued strength in the work that God has called them to here. We pray for eyes to see students as God does along with worshipful creativity and diligence in their work.
  • Beloved faculty and staff who have serious health concerns that they and all those who love them would know God’s loving, powerful presence in this time.
  • President Beck A. Taylor, his family and his leadership at Whitworth.
  • 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 outreach ministry gathering.
    • Thursday’s Chapel Community Worship gathering for music and the Lord’s Supper.
    • Monday, Wednesday and Friday reflective Morning Prayer services.


Thank you God for your extravagant forgiveness extended to us in Jesus, our crucified Lord. Because of your abundant forgiveness for us, lead us into your ways of generous forgiveness toward others. We rely on your strength to forgive and to receive the double freedom of your forgiveness for us and our being freed from bitterness toward others. Thank you Lord. Amen.
