“Making All Things New”

Jan. 14-Jan. 20
2 Corinthians 5:17

This week we pray for:

  • Students as they continue Jan Term classes, that they will work hard, learn well and be transformed in mind and heart.
  • Students to be empowered to live in the love of God and to seek peace together on our campus.
  • For faculty and staff as they teach, support and guide students in various ways both on campus and in study-away programs all over the world.
  • Students, staff and faculty who may be ill during this time, that God will heal and sustain them with loving care.
  • The many UREC outdoor offerings through the winter. We pray for safety, community, joy and worshipful awe before God’s amazing creation.
  • Various events this week on campus in preparation for the observance of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s life and legacy. We pray that God would continue to grow and transform the Whitworth community to be a community that lives in the reality of the reconciling work of Jesus Christ and witnesses to God’s heart for justice to those near and far.
  • Monday, Wednesday and Friday’s Jan Term Morning Prayer as students, staff and faculty join Christians around the world in lifting up their hearts to the Lord through Scripture, silence, prayer and song.
  • Tuesday and Thursday’s Jan Term Chapel Community Worship evening services as we gather for worship, testimony, prayer, community and the Lord’s Supper.
  • The annual Whitworth Board of Trustees winter gathering. We pray with gratitude for the faithful support and guidance of the board, and we pray for ongoing wisdom, unity and provision as they continue to guide Whitworth in its mission to equip our diverse student body to honor God, follow Christ and serve humanity.

Thanksgiving:

Lord, we are deeply thankful that you are Creator and Ruler of Earth. May you continue to form us into your new creation, that we might welcome you more fully to become the ruler of our hearts and minds and witness to your light and goodness. We are grateful that your Son, Jesus, the one through whom all was created and who now reigns over all creation, came as a servant to restore your creation from the inside. Amen.
