Pray for leaders who will be serving in the new camp realities/roles.

Father, thank you so much for providing a community that prioritizes caring for the next generation; helping them stand on our shoulders. We are so grateful for those in our community who do this in regular ways and also in ways through their daily living.

Specifically, we would like to pray today for all of our leaders who are stepping up and serving kids and students in this new reality this summer. Give them energy and creativity they need for each day. Give them endurance and patience to deal with unexpected challenges and potential technical issues as well as frustrations with kids and students.

Give them Your peace that passes understanding in the midst of whatever is happening in their daily lives. Allow them to invest fully in their campers and show Jesus to those they’re interacting with.

Father, we know this is such a difficult time, and we are so grateful for these unsung heroes who are giving their time each and every day. Help them not to be discouraged and to keep pointing campers back to You.

Allow these weeks of camp to be a life-changing experience not only for kids and students but also for our camp counselors and leaders. Help them create space in their own lives to have a deep, life-changing experience with You and allow them to lead from that overflow.

In all of this, may this entire summer experience be used for Your glory.

In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’ -Acts 20:35 (NIV)

Pray for people at higher risk of developing the disease.

Dear Lord, we lift to You our concern for people who are more likely than others to become severely ill from COVID-19 — the elderly and people with chronic health conditions. Protect them from harm and be their comfort in this time of uncertainty and, for many, preventive isolation from loved ones.

Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.—1 Peter 5:7 (NIV)

Our world, community and church is in desperate need of prayer in this crisis.

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4:6-7

Pray for educators and students (including colleges and universities)

God we pray for students during this time who are away from their routines and their lives at school. We pray that they continue to have positive connections with their friends and others from school. We pray for their work at home, that you help them be productive and give them confidence that they can do their work well.

God we also pray for the teachers while they are away from their students. You know how much the teachers care and love for their students and want them to succeed. In this time of online learning, we pray that the time spent with their students online is life-giving and can be a moment where the students see that their teachers are there for them.

The LORD gives strength to his people; the LORD blesses his people with peace. Psalm 29:11 (NIV)
