Day 2 of camp

During camp the Lord gave me an incredible opportunity with one of the local kids. As we were finishing practice, I noticed he was on the other end of the field all by himself. I went over to see if everything was alright. We talked for a while and he said he was very upset with himself. He felt as if he was being selfish since every time didn’t play well, he would start to cry. A pretty mature response from a kid that couldn’t have been more than 8 years old. He went on to explain how he is always bored at home because his mom always takes away his Xbox and other things because he says “bad words or does bad things.” I asked some provoking questions as to how he could fix this and he said “I know I shouldn’t do those things but it’s really hard not to because the devil always enters my heart makes me wanna do those things.” I asked him if he knows who Jesus is. I explained that he can pray to ask Jesus to help him when the devil tempts him. He said he knows that but has never done it before and doesn’t know how. I asked him if he wanted me to pray for him. So I had the opportunity to pray for him and told him that he could pray whenever he wanted because Jesus was always listening. I explained that he could even say it in his head because Jesus even hears those prayers, which blew him away. I had been praying all week for an opportunity like this, so when God gave this one to me I was incredibly grateful.
