Next Monday I’ll be heading off to a Bible camp with one of the amazing girls I do inclusion with. I think, though, that this is going to be a challenging week [especially emotionally] as I attempt to help integrate and involve her on a more personal level than she integrates and involves herself.
I want to see growth so, so much. I want to grow by seeing her grow.
I put a call out on Twitter last night for people who will engage in prayer with me during the week next week, and to those of you who have responded I am so grateful and want to hug all of you.
You probably all know I don’t do these kinds of things often, so here’s what I’m requesting prayer for:
- Spiritual growth and engagement; lessons that become tangible.
- Health [for both of us!] and safety
- Emotional preparedness — for the weeklong and perhaps intense journey that camp will be. For the girlie, manageable homesickness if any.
- Patience and compassion
- Sleep. Oh my goodness, sleep.
I’ve never done anything like this where I’m on-duty 24 hours a day for like five-and-a-half days. I’m very stoked to see what God teaches me through this. I feel really blessed by those of you who have already committed to be on my team of prayer warriors next week.
I love you all — thanks for joining me on this journey!
