Spangle, Wash., 6-16-2011 - At 6:30 a.m. Thursday morning, a small group gathered located in the library of the Upper Columbia Academy administration building. They came together with purpose. They intended to bathe those attending and participating in the Upper Columbia Conference in prayer.

Melissa Miranda is one of the volunteers who is helping to run the prayer room. “We call it the CPR room, the Lord revives people here,” she said.

The prayer room is open from 6:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. throughout campmeeting. Miranda says it is not your typical prayer room. She says instead of individual or one or two praying together the focus is on praying “together” which she says is important for unity.

“As we hear the outpouring of each other’s hearts we become more compassionate for each other and we come to care and love for each other more…I have seen hearts transformed,” said Miranda.

Miranda encourages all the participants in campmeeting to stop in at the prayer room at some time during camp meeting. You may find the spiritual CPR was just what you needed.
