Tonight was Tonbridge Baptist Church’s monthly prayer meeting, and tonight we spent time praying for our week long youth camp which starts in ten days time.

We started with Psalm 84:10 – what we desire for our young people – a day in God’s presence is truly better than 3 years of life in Tonbridge and beyond:

Better is one day in your courts
       than a thousand elsewhere;
       I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God
       than dwell in the tents of the wicked.

This was followed with some worship reflecting on God’s faithfulness.  Tonbridge Baptist Church has been around for over 140 years, there are many, many examples we can give of God’s faithfulness, so let’s be expectant to see God work this year.

After a bit of information on where we’re going, we prayed through our spiritual sessions, the activity programme, health and safety, and catering.  There were then sheets of paper with every camper, leader, and leader’s children for people to pray over.

I came away with a strong sense that although there weren’t many people, there were some incredible prayer warriors there battling on our youth work’s behalf – it’s great to know we have people like that on our side.
