On every camp trip with kids (summer, fall, winter, work crew, etc) I make sure to get that camper’s birthdate and contact info. It goes on my calendar, along with all my family birthdays and other dates. Every kid who has ever been in a cabin with me absolutely gets prayed for at least once a year on their b-day – if not more.
Every January, as the names get transferred to a new calendar, I am humbled that the Lord would bless me with the privilege to pray for these names.
