The Prayer of a Camp Leader

If you are blessed with the calling of ward or stake girls camp director then I am so excited for you.  With all of that excitement is a whole lot of work, as well.  Do not get overwhelmed because you can do it! I promise you can and it is going to turn out great.  Sometimes we just have to be reminded 🙂

Camp Leader’s Prayer

Let me come eagerly to camp this year Lord
Let me come with a new delight in the countless things I must accomplish
Instead of my usual panic, fill me with a glowing sense of trust and peace.
Each day that I awake, let me rejoice in the fact that I am well and able to get up and begin.
And through there never seems to be enough time or money, let me remember the 
     loaves and the fishes…………
     each year there is always plenty……… more than plenty,
     even time stretches out like a magic ribbon, somehow embracing all that 
     must be done.
As for a woman’s strength- therein lies the greatest marvel of all-
Thou gives each of us extra portions for this season, so that at the end, lik
     children, we hug camp close to our hearts and don’t want it to be over.
Remind me of all this as I prepare for camp this year, Dear Lord.
Let me come eagerly to the seemingly impossible- knowing that this is a cause
      Worthy of miracles.
