Prayer is the name we give to our conversations with God. These might be conversations we have out loud, in our heads, written in our journal or even spoken with other people. It’s good to talk to him about what’s going on in our world, in our lives right now, about the other people in our lives or even our relationship with him.

Praying doesn’t have to be done a certain way, it’s just like a conversation with a friend - except that God is the most powerful friend you have ever had! He listens to and cares about your thoughts, worries, and dreams even while he is taking care of the whole world. He is able to handle any problem you might face.

So, why wouldn’t we talk to God about what’s going on right now?

For Intro & Residential Campers: spend time in prayer with your family

For High School Campers: call on a friend, a mentor, or a loved one to pray with

Looking for a fun way to engage with prayer in your home? Start a prayer wall in your house. Write the answers to these questions on sticky notes or paper (with painter’s tape!) and stick them to a wall in your house. When you pass by the wall, talk to God about the first thing you see on the paper.
