Bless these young athletes who you have entrusted to my care.
I pray that through the hard work of practice and competition,
That they may develop in physical skill, mental strength,
And as teammates and friends.
Most all, I pray that through the sports in which we participate,
They may grow closer to You,
Recognizing that all they are given is a gift and that all we do is for Your Glory.
May you keep them healthy in mind, body and soul,
And help them to grow in both victory and defeat.
In Jesus name I pray,
