A Prayer for Athletes

 

Thanks God, for giving me life; and talents for my participation in sports.

Help me to play well, to use my powers to the full, to see them as gifts from you.

Be with me when I need to play hurt, when I have to deal with the pain of injury,

disappointment, loss.

 

Keep me aware of the brotherhood/sisterhood I have with all athletes, even when

they are opponents; free me from the temptation to fake, to foul, to cheat.

 

I need to see that dedication to the cause will mean suffering, but let me know that

it is the kind of suffering that leads to new life and greater maturity.

Help me play with heart, and never lose heart.

 

Most of all, help me never to quit in my efforts to be open to you. For I believe your

full coming into my life is the way to real life, in all I do; I believe it is the way of my

becoming the truly human person you destined me to be.

 

Amen.
