Prayer Requests:
Nothing of eternal significance ever happens apart from prayer.-Jerry Falwell

     Monday: Pray for safe travels to camp. Pray for all of the leaders and chaperones. Pray for the mercy of God strengthens them daily. Pray that they would be encouraged daily by the movement of God’s Spirit in the lives of our teens.
     Tuesday: Pray God speaks to each of our students. Pray that every teenager would experience Jesus in such a way that their lives are forever changed. Pray that God saves those who do not know Him and He encourages & edifies those who are already following Him.
     Wednesday: Pray that there would be no distractions or drama. Pray that our teens would be united and a powerful sense of unity and friendship would be evident among everyone.
     Thursday: Pray that our teens would surrender every aspect of their lives at the altar. Pray that they would bow their knees to the Lordship of Jesus Christ in their lives & they would allow Jesus Christ to guide, lead and direct them.
     Friday: Pray for safe travels back home. Pray that the commitments made at camp would be real and genuine as they return home. Pray they follow through on the commitments and God receives all of the glory.

As always my cell phone will be on at all times. Please do not hesitate to call if you need anything.
