Lord, thank you for the gift of the young athletes you have entrusted to my care this season.
Grant that I may have the graces necessary to help them develop physically, mentally and spiritually. May they experience the joy of play and competition in the practice and games ahead.
Help me to teach them so that individual and team will maximize the gifts God has given them. May our team always exhibit sportsmanship consistent with our Christian values and may we strive to glorify You in all that we do.
Help me to set a positive example as a coach. May I always seek to serve Christ and His children through this role of Coach Minister.
