A Prayer Before a Game


God our Father,

You have created us

to strive for the best.

Grant to all athletes, coaches, and fans,

strength to pursue excellence

during this event.

We pray for the safety of these athletes;

Protect them from injury and harm.

And finally, we pray for your grace,

that you would provide us

with the endurance to pursue our heavenly prize:

eternal life in Your Son.

Amen.
