This is Our Prayer
Discover new ways to connect with God
Some of us speak our thoughts and feelings to God. Others are quiet, settling their hearts to make space for God. Some pray through music, art, or movement. Some pray aloud, while others’ prayers are whispers of the soul. Whether we fold our hands and bow or raise them up and look to the sky, God is longing to connect with us. God hears our prayers. In this new outdoor ministry resource from InsideOut, campers will explore the shared longings of the human heart and all the different ways Christians have prayed throughout history. Through Bible stories and spiritual practices, we’ll discover a deeper connection with God and each other and grow into the beloved community of God, where everyone is invited, loved, and celebrated for who they are. This is our prayer.
This Is Our Prayer summer camp curriculum includes:
• Bible studies centered on our longings and God’s call to be a part of something bigger than ourselves
• Daily themes focused on our desire to be included, connected, heard, guided, and. renewed, as well as to create change and to celebrate
• A new prayer practice for each day, such as prayer partners, a labyrinth, guided meditation, and collaborative art
The Dakotas Camp and Retreat ministry is part of the ministry of the Dakotas Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church. With two camps in South Dakota and one in North Dakota, we offer Christian hospitality and places apart where all individuals may experience God’s grace and love, and grow in discipleship. Close friendships and Christian community typically grow quickly at camp where lives are positively transformed.
In addition, we partner with local churches as we work together to continue to grow disciples and leaders that are making a difference in their schools, churches, and communities. Thank you for the prayers and support as we continue the journey of making disciples for Jesus Christ.
