I prayed for myself—without anyone’s help

I was at summer camp, and for the first time in my life, I had an opportunity to pray for myself without anyone else’s help. 

One night, I woke up in the middle of the night and was awake for about an hour because I wasn’t feeling well. I finally drifted off to sleep, but then I woke up again feeling sicker—like I was going to throw up.  

I was afraid, because a few days earlier I’d eaten a minty-tasting plant that I thought was edible mint. But then a boy told me that he had also eaten that plant and was sick for several days.
