Prayer for Orthodox Camping Programs

O Lord Jesus Christ our God, who condescended to enter under the roof of Zacchaeus the Publican, thus becoming salvation to him and his whole household: As the same Lord, by means of our unworthy prayers, look with mercy and beneficence upon our Orthodox encampments. As our Lord and Master, enlighten our directors, counselors, and staff to the doing of Your holy Will, so that they might always worthily direct those entrusted to their care, to grow in wisdom and grace before Your majesty. May Your presence be felt in the midst of our encampments, thus, in Your mercy, preserving them from the snares of the evil one and abundantly providing opportunity that all participants profit by Your blessing. For You are our God, and to You do we ascribe glory: to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, now and ever and unto ages of ages. Amen.
