A Parent’s Prayer
Father in Heaven,
Help me to do your will in my role as a sports parent.
May I be for my young athlete a source of encouragement and strength.
May I help my child to grow in their faith while supporting their development in skill.
May I be a positive partner to my child’s coach,
Supporting them in their effort to teach and develop all the children on the team.
May I be positive in my support at practices and games,
Even when this is difficult.
And may my example lead other parents to do the same.
In all things may I strive to imitate the example of the Blessed Virgin Mary and Saint Joseph,
In their devotion and care for the child Jesus.
Through their intercession and in Jesus name I pray,
