Running The Race

Hebrews 11 tells us about the lives of so many faithful servants of Jesus. The stories in this chapter are really astounding and incredible. While we want to share these true stories of faith with our campers, we also want them to know something even better: the author of those stories is the same author of our lives. In Hebrews 12, God then calls each of us to “run the race” with the knowledge that He is the author of our stories and that Jesus is always with us while we endure this race of living our lives for Him. Join us in this prayer:

Thank you for giving us the chance to serve your children. Help us to teach them of your love and your presence in their lives. God, you have called each of us to fix our eyes on you while we run the race that you have set for us. We pray now that our campers know that you have given them purpose, that you are always with them on their race toward your kingdom come, and that they can lean on you in everything they do.
