14 Days of Prep Prayer

for Encounter God’s Presence camp 2020

We start our 14 Days of Prep Prayer as we prepare for what God is going to do. Here’s the daily prayer areas that a volunteer has put together.

Please feel free to share this link with youth workers, teenagers, parents and to any of prayer warriors so they can also pray each day’s focus along with always praying Psalm 91 hedge of protection.

Watch youth share Psalm 91.

Fasting – if you feel led, some will pick one day to fast a meal or a meal one day the week before camp in preparation. This is obviously not just skipping a meal but that extra time spent seeking God. Read Isaiah 58 for fasting that pleases God. Another option esp. for those who struggle with food disorders is to fast from something else for like 30 min. that day, like tv or the computer and use that time pursing God.

For His glory,

P.S. Remember James 5:16b tells us, “The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.”

#1 of 14 Days of Prep Prayers (14 days away, Mon. July 6th): Give Thanks

As we prepare for this year’s Encounter God’s Presence Camp let’s begin to thank God for all He’s gonna do! Also, thank Him for financial provision for every adult and teenager that has a desire to go to camp. And for the opportunity to serve with our brothers and sisters in Christ.

God, You’ve chosen to declare and show Your Glory to this generation and for that we’re grateful. We count it an honor and a privilege to be used by You and do not take it for granted. God, we pray that You will have Your way in every one of us, that You would speak through us to reach this generation for You! Thank You for loving us all so much, for showing us Your mercy, grace, and peace everyday. We honor You as our Lord and Savior. We pray this in Jesus’ Name.


Psalms 107:1 NLT

Give thanks to the LORD, for He is good! His faithful love endures forever.


Psalms 90:16 NLT

Let us, Your servants, see You work again; let our children see Your Glory.


2 John 1:3 NLT

Grace, mercy, and peace, which come from God the Father and Jesus Christ –the Son of the Father-will continue to be with us who live in truth and love.

Note: Always remember to be praying a Psalm 91 hedge of protection over everyone please. Watch youth share Psalm 91.

#2 of 14 (13 days away) : Prepare our Hearts

Let us allow God to deal with our hearts today concerning anything that may not be pleasing in His sight.

God, we all fall short of Your glorious standards too often and know that it’s only by Your grace, mercy, and the blood of Jesus that we are able to come to You for forgiveness. You are so faithful to forgive and cleanse us. Father, You know how our thoughts can get off track. Please help us to be more focused and responsible with all the things You entrust us with. God, create in us a clean heart and renew a right spirit within us in Jesus’ name, we pray.


For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard. Romans 3:23 NLT


If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:9 NKJV  


You know my sitting down and my rising up; You understand my thought afar off. Psalm 139:2 NKJV  

When someone has been given much, much will be required in return; and when someone has been entrusted with much, even more will be required. Luke 12:48 NLT

Day #3 (12 days away – Wed. July 8th)


Pray for the Unity of the Spirit

God, You have called us to be one as You are one with Jesus and The Holy Spirit. God help us to come together, in unity, serving one another in love and bringing You Glory. “Oh how good and pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!”

Let us pray for this camp to be an awakening of God’s intended plan for His Church and for The Holy Spirit to move mightily on us as we gather together in one accord. Also, pray for lasting relationships to be established and for opportunities to serve with one another again for the advancing of the Kingdom of God. In Jesus’ name.


Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! Psalms 133: 1 NKJV


Now may the God of patience and comfort grant you to be like-minded toward one another, according to Christ Jesus, that you may with one mind and one mouth glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Romans 15: 5 NKJV

And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one: “I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved Me. John 17: 22-23 NKJV

Heart of Expectancy

Heavenly Father, we pray that You will do a new thing within us all at camp this year!! From the worship, to The Word spoken over us, and to the prayers that will go out, God have Your way. Help us to yield to Your Spirit and as You move, we will move with You. May everything be done for Your Glory! Create rivers in the dry wastelands in our lives and make a pathway through the wilderness we face, so that Your called and chosen will be refreshed.

God, please place in us a heart of expectancy for breakthroughs, healing, deliverance, lives to be completely changed, and eyes opened to the truth of Your Word. Heavenly Father, we expect You to do a new thing, in Jesus’ name!!!


For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland. Isaiah 43:19 NLT


Then He who sat on the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.” And He said to me, “Write, for these words are true and faithful.” Revelation 21:5 NKJV

Day #5 (10 days away – Fri. June 10th)

God’s Will be Done

Let us pray that God’s will be done at camp. God we recognize that You are in control of everything and You are not subject to our plans or schedule, but rather we are subject to Yours. You are welcome in each and every session. Wherever we are, we welcome You to have Your way in us all so we can experience You like never before. Father, help us to wait patiently on You, yield ourselves to Your Spirit, listen closely to what You say, and as You lead we will follow.


In this manner, therefore, pray: Our Father in heaven, Hallowed be Your name. Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. Matthew 6: 9-10 NKJV


Therefore I will look to the Lord; I will wait for the God of my salvation; my God will hear me. Micah 7:7 NKJV


But those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint. Isaiah 40:31 NKJV

Day #6: (9 days away – Sat. July 11th)

Salvation, Deliverance, and Healing

Lord, we pray for everyone that will be at Encounter to know You as Lord and Savior. There may be some who felt pressured to come and have no desire to be there on their own. God, we pray they will encounter You in such a way that their eyes will be opened to see You for who You are- King of Kings and Lord of Lords; touch their hearts and minds so they are changed forever. We pray for complete deliverance to go forth from every stronghold, sin, imagination and high thing that tries to exalt itself against the knowledge of You. May every thought be brought captive unto the obedience of Christ. And God, we praise You now for complete healing, mind, body, and spirit for Your Glory! In Jesus’ name.

And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered:… Joel 2:32 KJV

Behold, the LORD’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; nor His ear heavy that it cannot hear. Isaiah 59:1 NKJV

There is salvation in no one else! God has given no other name under heaven by which we must be saved. Acts 4:12 NLT

For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ. 2 Corinthians 10:4-5 NKJV

Day #7: (8 days away – Sun. July 12th)

Times of Worship

Father, we pray for a sweet time of worship while we pursue You at Encounter!  We pray for Heidi Williams and the rest of the worship band as they prepare, and that Your Holy Spirit will lead and operate freely through them in every song. We pray for their voices, sound equipment, instruments, mics, and everything needed to operate as planned. As we come together as one body, we pray that everyone will be in one accord, worshiping You in spirit and in truth. Lord, we pray You will consume us with Your love and joy, for Your joy is our strength! In Your Presence sorrow and depression will disappear and we will be filled with joy and gladness, in Jesus’ name.


But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him. John 4: 23 NKJV


Those who have been ransomed by the LORD will return. They will enter Jerusalem singing, crowned with everlasting joy. Sorrow and mourning will disappear and they will be filled with joy and gladness. Isaiah 51:11 NLT

…for this day is Holy to our Lord. Do not sorrow for the joy of the LORD is your strength! Nehemiah 8:10 NKJV

Day #8: (7 days away – Mon. July 13th)

Pray for the Word of God & “Triple T”

Let us pray for the Word that will go forth during each message given by all the speakers. And also when our individual youth groups share together in “Triple T” (Times To Testify).

Heavenly Father, thank You for the Word You’ve placed on the hearts of each speaker. I pray that we will have ears to hear and hearts to receive Your Word and apply it to our lives so we will be doers of Your Word and not hearers only. Thank You that Your Word will not return void but will accomplish everything for which You sent it. You say, when we abide in Your Word, we shall know the truth, and the truth shall make us free. Lord, we pray that everyone who is in Christ Jesus will be able to walk in that liberty; free from guilt, condemnation, and the bondage of sin. In the name of Jesus.


But don’t just listen to God’s word. You must do what it says. Otherwise, you are only fooling yourselves. James 1:22 NLT


So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it. Isaiah 55:11 NKJV


Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” John 8:31-32 NKJV


There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. Romans 8:1 NKJV

Day #9: (6 days away – Tues. July 14th)

Pray for the GF Soldier (spoken word poet) and the rapper and others who will be using their gifts for God’s glory.

Lord, thank You for the gifts and talents You’ve given each artist and athlete to serve You and others. Help them to continue to resist the temptation to conform to the world and would never become prideful. We pray You will be glorified and honored in such a way that it pleases You to say “Well done, good and faithful servant”. We pray that everything will be done in the Name of the Lord Jesus, and that no flesh will receive glory in Your place. Thank You for giving each individual a heart to serve with their gifts, may they increase in the creativity of their gifts and talents as they continue to serve You. In Jesus’ Name.

Praise His name with dancing… Psalm 149:3 NLT


God has given each of you a gift from His great variety of spiritual gifts. Use them well to serve one another. 1 Peter 4:10 NLT


And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him. Colossians 3:17 NKJV


His lord said to him, “Well done, good and faithful servant; you were faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your Lord”. Matthew 25:21 NKJV

Day #10: (5 days away – Wed. July 15th)

Our Brothers and Sisters Persecuted For Their Faith

Let us pray for our brothers and sisters facing persecution for their faith. Some are in hiding, have family taken, in prison, facing death, and others have been martyred because of their faith in the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Let’s pray this together…

“Father God, we know You are with those who are persecuted. We pray Your Spirit will continue to rest on them as they endure persecution and that they would be delivered from the hand of their enemy. Your grace is sufficient for everything they need. May their lives and the sacrifices they make be a testimony to those who do not know You as Lord and Savior and may many come to know You because of it. Help us to pray for those who persecute Your Church, to bless them and not curse them. God, we pray You will remove “the scales from their eyes” so they may come to know Your saving Grace. We pray this in Jesus’ Name.


… and all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution. 2 Timothy 3:12 NKJV


Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse. Romans 12:14 NKJV


But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, Matthew 5:44 NKJV

Day #11: (4 days away – Thurs. July 16th)

Prophetic Words from the Presbytery Team

Praying this…

God, we pray for our prophetic presbytery team. Thank You, for the prophetic words that will be shared. We pray for everyone ministered to during this time and that they will receive Your Word as confirmation, strength, encouragement, and comfort. Continue to use them in ways they could never imagine. We pray that Your Word will be a “right now word”, to which, they can hold and stand on to build them up. Thank You that Your promises over us are “Yes” and “Amen”. We receive it, in Jesus’ name.

Then the LORD reached out and touched my mouth and said, “Look, I have put My words in your mouth! Today I appoint you to stand up against nations and kingdoms. Some you must uproot and tear down, destroy and overthrow. Others you must build up and plant.” Jeremiah 1:9-10 NLT


But one who prophesies strengthens others, encourages them, and comforts them. 1 Corinthians 14:3 NLT


So encourage each other and build each other up, just as you are already doing. 1 Thessalonians 5:11 NLT
