Xtreme Camp Prayer Request:
Would you join us in praying that the Holy Spirit would change us and help us see Jesus more this week?
Here are eight camp-specific areas where we’d especially love your prayer:
Physical safety and health—Please pray for no sickness or injuries, for good sleep, and for energy.
Good weather—It’s looking like we might have some thunderstorms in the latter half of the week.
Kindness and humility in competitions—A lot of the games revolve around a big competition between four teams. Please pray that healthy competition draws kids together and strengthens new friendships, but also that competition doesn’t overtake grace and humility. Please pray that kids and leaders look for and seize opportunities to serve each other and reach out to each other.
Welcoming friendships—Please pray that God deepens existing friendships and builds new friendships. Please particularly pray for welcoming friendships among New McKendree kids, guests, and our partner church friends.
Worship—Summer camp is a time when kids can practice engaging in worship in a smaller context. Please pray that the times of worship are full of freedom and excitement and that there is a response to Jesus both on the stage and off.
Messages—Please pray for our speakers as they teach. Please pray that we listen attentively and that God gives us ears to hear.
Conversations—There are small group discussions every evening and morning, plus a hundred little conversations. Please pray that the kids share and that we leaders ask good questions, hear what people really mean, and speak God’s truth and love.
Most of all, in whatever circumstances God brings us, please pray that God shows each of us how amazing he is and what it means to love and follow him.
