In the Name of the Lord Jesus

May 20-August 25
Scripture: Colossians 3:17 – “And whatever you do in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father through him.”

Note – This will be our last On Bended Knee entry of the 2018-19 academic year. Thank you for your faithful prayer and support of Whitworth! The prayers of God’s people all over the world for Whitworth are a priceless gift.

This week we pray for:

  • Students as they go various directions for the summer. We pray for safety, refreshment, wise choices, growth in Christ, enriching relationships and fun.
  • Monday’s Provost Breakfast for faculty to celebrate the completed academic year, recognize faculty and hear final words from our retiring faculty.
  • Monday’s end of year celebration and worship service as we celebrate God’s faithfulness at the end of the academic year and honor those who are retiring from Whitworth.
  • May Term off-campus study classes. We pray for rich times of learning for students, wonderful community, sustenance for professors and growth in God’s heart for the world.
  • All Whitworth employees as we enter into the different rhythms of summer work, for wisdom, diligence, sustenance, contentment and productivity in all.
  • Grounds, trades and facilities staff as they enter into one of their busiest seasons of the year—summer. We pray for safety, community, work that is worship and strength through the summer.
  • Various summer faculty and staff educational opportunities, including the Vocations of the Christian Professor faith-learning integration workshop for faculty and the 3-day intergroup dialogue workshop for staff and faculty.


Lord we are thankful that you have given us hands to do good work.  Help us look to you to lead and guide us in all that you have entrusted to us. We are grateful and humbled that you would invite us to participate in your good work in the world and surrender ourselves afresh to do your bidding in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
