A Prayer for Camp
In the beauty of your world, O God, you show us how great your love is. Be with us we go away to camp. Open our eyes to the wonder of creation and, in it, let us draw nearer to you. Let our play be joyful. Let us encounter wonder and surprise as we learn. Let our rest be peaceful. Keep us safe, in the knowledge that we are deeply loved by you, and by each other, we are held dear in your heart for ever. We pray in Jesus’ name. Amen
Pray for the Staff
O God, source of faith, home, and love: Bless the members of the staff, who labor with their hands, minds, and hearts for the benefit of our community. Give them strength to perform their daily duties to the best of their ability, and grand them the courage to persevere under whatever circumstances life may bring. And when the day is over and their work has ceased, may they finally find rest and find strength in you. Amen.
