Whenever I’m afraid, I put my trust in you.
Psalm 56:3 (CEB)
Psalm 56:3 (CEB)
Children are more than the church of tomorrow; they are a vital part of the church today! The vision of CHUM Children is to grow children’s hearts for God. We want children to experience for themselves who God is, how He sees them, and how much He loves them. We were given prayer as a way to communicate with God directly. Teaching our children to pray helps them to understand that God is always accessible and always there for them.
The children of Camp Hill UMC have listed ideas for prayer for you to consider each day, and we invite you to add your own personal prayers. Every day (except for Saturday Sabbath), someone from Camp Hill UMC will be engaging with you on Facebook Live at 6:30 pm. In our church’s pattern of praying together at dinner time, we invite you to join in these “community” events and to add your prayers to the chorus.
Let us pray for….
Germs (like COVID-19) to go away
Teachers who cannot say goodbye to their students
Grandparents who must social distance from their grandchildren
Children who are not in school to celebrate the end of the school year
Those who are deciding when we can open places up again
First responders who keep us safe
Vacation Bible School and all the children who get to hear about Jesus’ Power and Love!
Jesus’ power to help us do hard things
Jesus’ power to give us hope
Jesus’ power to help us be bold
Jesus’ power to let us live forever
Jesus’ power to help us be good friends
Our friends who we can’t see right now
Our parents or caregivers who take care of us and keep us safe
To use this time to bring people closer to Jesus
Those who are staying at home instead of traveling this summer
Those who work at the grocery store
Those who are injured to heal quickly
Kids wearing masks for the first time to remember it keeps us safe and isn’t scary
Our pets and the animals that bring us joy during this time
Our fathers and father-like figures
Those who are grieving
Those who have cancer or other diseases who can’t get to a doctor because of COVID-19
Caretakers who continue to comfort and encourage others
Farmers who work hard to give us food to eat
Doctors, nurses, and medical professionals who continue to care for the sick
For all of us to get through this rough and challenging time
The people around the world who are all going through this together
Friends who are moving during this stressful time
