Let Us Pray

An Invocation for the March Camp Meeting

O Lord, on this night, we gather to remember those who have gone before us and have left for us the example of duty. We, their descendents, still treasure the concepts of liberty, freedom, and justice.

We remember the words and deeds of Lee, Jackson, and Davis. The voice of General Lee resounds in the halls of history as he said, “My chief concern is to try to be an humble, earnest Christian.” We thank you for our Confederate heritage.

Lord, it is good to be in this fellowship tonight. We do ask for your presence and guidance. Allow us to claim the words of Stonewall Jackson as our own when he said, “I am as safe in battle as I am at home in my bed. My life is in the hands of the Heavenly Father.” We thank you for our Confederate heritage.

We welcome your presence tonight. Accept now our thanksgiving and our praise. We desire your guidance at all times.

We offer this prayer in the strong name of Jesus Christ our Savior. Amen.

 

 

 

 

A Benediction for the March Camp Meeting

At the conclusion of this most special hour, we thank you, O God, for what we have seen, what we have heard, and what we have experienced. In these moments we have been reminded of devout, dedicate individuals who would not retreat even in the face of superior numbers. Their hope was for liberty, freedom and justice. 

We think of the banner they followed and the lofty goals for which they stood and we are challenged to remain faithful in this same cause.

We leave this assembly tonight in the bond of united effort to remember and honor our Confederate heritage.

May honor, glory, and majesty be Yours through time and all eternity. In the name of Christ our Savior. Amen.
