Prayer for life-change at Joy El Camps & Retreats during biggest summer camp week

Lord, today we pray for Joy El Camps & Retreats in south-central Pennsylvania, USA, as they enter into their busiest week of summer camp ministry. We know this ministry will have hundreds of children, from kindergarten through recent high school graduates, experiencing Jesus through their programs this week. We ask your blessing on Joy El as the organization seeks to ignite a generation to seek you, and as staff and volunteers help people experience life-change through personal encounters with you. First, please prepare the hearts of campers, who will begin their camp experience Sunday or Monday, depending on the program. May their hearts be fertile for whatever you have for them this week. May every camper in every program (from the senior high Leadership Experience to the Adventure Village to the community day camps and beyond) be positively impacted this week. Next, we pray for the staff, ranging from those who serve full-time year-round to those who have selflessly committed their summers to serving you and youth, to those who have stepped in to volunteer for just this week. May these disciples serve well; protect their health and physical well-being; grant them effectiveness and joy. We pray that the facilities that host these programs, including the camp property and those churches that are offering programs, will be safe, joyful places for young people to thrive and grow on every level this week. May the weather forecast of heavy rain not dampen spirits as campers and staff members seek your best plan for them this week. In Jesus' name we pray, amen.
