Christian camp is an amazing opportunity for each camper. It is often life changing. God is at work in the hearts and minds of our kids, whether a summer camp experience, a brief retreat or a school service week. Bathe them in prayer
Prayers for our boys and girls today and this week at Sky Ranch.
God will draw them to Him
1 Timothy 2:3-4
This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth
John 6:44-45 “No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws him, and I will raise him up at the last day. It is written in the Prophets: ‘They will all be taught by God.’ Everyone who listens to the Father and learns from him comes to me.”
The LORD appeared to us in the past, saying: “I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with loving-kindness.
They will hear and believe
for, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
One of those listening was a woman named Lydia, a dealer in purple cloth from the city of Thyatira, who was a worshiper of God.
The Lord opened her heart to respond to Paul’s message.
I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.
 And I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws.
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—
2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!
God will strengthen their faith
John 17:20-26 Jesus Prays for all Believers after he prayed for the Disciples
“My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message,  that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you.
May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me.  I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one:  I in them and you in me. May they be brought to complete unity to let the world know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.
 “Father, I want those you have given me to be with me where I am, and to see my glory, the glory you have given me because you loved me before the creation of the world.
 “Righteous Father, though the world does not know you, I know you, and they know that you have sent me.
 I have made you known to them, and will continue to make you known in order that the love you have for me may be in them and that I myself may be in them.”
2 Thessalonians 3:5
May the Lord direct your hearts into God’s love and Christ’s perseverance.
Sanctify them by the truth; your word is truth.
Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!
Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, 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.
You have made known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand.
They will walk in His ways
I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.  And I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws.
He answered: ” `Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’ ; and, `Love your neighbor as yourself.’ ”
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; [
6] in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.
7] Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord and shun evil.
Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.  Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.
My son, do not forget my teaching, but keep my commands in your heart,  Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart.
How can a young man keep his way pure? By living according to your word.
I seek you with all my heart; do not let me stray from your commands.
I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you.
Praise be to you, O Lord; teach me your decrees.
The precepts of the Lord are right, giving joy to the heart. The commands of the Lord are radiant, giving light to the eyes.
As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received.
 Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.  Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace.
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.
Do to others as you would have them do to you.
2 Peter 1:5-8
For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge;
 and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness;
 and to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness, love.
 For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honor one another above yourselves.
For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says
They learn to be Salt and Light
1 Corinthians 1:31
Therefore, as it is written: “Let him who boasts boast in the Lord.”
Do everything without complaining or arguing,  so
that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe
Simply let your `Yes’ be `Yes,’ and your `No,’ `No’; anything beyond this comes from the evil one.
In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.
1 John 2:10
Whoever loves his brother lives in the light, and there is nothing in him to make him stumble.
Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.
