At 4am tomorrow (Friday) our Remar Blue Caravel head off on their Solidarity Camp to Bourke. I am privileged to be joining them as they embark on their important ministry. Over the course of the camp, we will volunteer in St Ignatius Primary School, assisting with general maintenance works and helping out with classroom activities where appropriate. Each year our Remar Blue Rowers speak so highly of this experience; of the relationships they develop, how their eyes are opened to a new and vastly different community, the depth of understanding of Christian Service that they develop and the fun they have along the way! I ask you to pray for us and offer the prayer below for your consideration. It’s a prayer for the journey, and you may find it helpful for your own life journeys too.

Loving God,
We ask for your guidance in showing us the road down which we are headed.
Whether it be over steep mountains or through tangled forests, give us sure footing!
Help us to navigate our road with wisdom, confidence, courage and faith.
Give us the wisdom to choose the path that stretches our limits but does not break us.
The courage to push on even when things get tough.
The confidence to turn back when we have taken the wrong path.
And faith in you so that when all hope of finding the way is gone,
you will come and take us on your wings.
