A daily prayer from the New England Conference
Members of the New England Conference Extended Cabinet are sharing a daily prayer based on the Revised Common Lectionary for the week.
You are welcome to use these in worship or in your own devotions.
In the just a few weeks more than 3,000 campers, volunteers, and staff people will spend time at Camp Aldersgate, Wanakee, and Camp Mechuwana. It seems like it has been a long time coming. Please join me in prayer for this summer. Lord, as we get ready to welcome thousands of people onto our sites, we ask for your guidance and strength. We know these campers will come to us excited, nervous, and ready for a new adventure. Help us, Lord, to match that excitement, to calm those nerves, and to be just as ready for an adventure as our campers. Lord we are so blessed to see lives transformed before our very eyes, whether helping a camper overcome stage fright, witnessing someone be able to swim or get into a boat for the first time; go further on the ropes course than they thought was possible or make a friend that will last a lifetime. We ask you Lord to walk with us, as we will walk with the young people under our care. By Norman Thombs, Director, Camp Mechuwana
