Camp UMC Connecting together through Scripture and Prayer
Entrance into Prayer: Take five slow, deep, centering breaths acknowledging Christ’s presence with you.
Opening Prayer: Almighty God, who gave your Son Jesus Christ a realm where all peoples, nations, and languages should serve him; make us loyal followers of our living Lord, that we may always hear his word, follow his teachings, and live in his Spirit; and hasten the day when every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that he is Lord; to your eternal glory. Amen.
Scripture Reading: Using this week’s Lectionary reading Spend a moment after reading the scripture reflecting listening to what God is saying. This would be a good time to journal your reflections.
Prayer: Christ is Lord and we have hope that God is bringing all things to a glorious resolution. It is in this hope we pray. Each day you are encouraged to explore using the selected Psalm reading as a prayer as you pray through Camp UMC’s weekly prayer list and pray for: Your family and friends, The people of our Camp UMC
Community, Our neighbors of Brunswick County, Those suffering and in trouble, The world, its peoples, and its leaders, The Church universal
Closing Prayer: We believe in you, O God, for you have made the suffering of humanity your suffering. You have come to establish a kingdom of the poor and humble. Today we sing to you, because you are alive, you have saved us, you have made us free. Amen. (Adapted from United Methodist Book of Worship 511.
