A Prayer for Prudence
St. Irenaeus said, “The glory of God is people fully alive.” A fully alive person has knowledge of what is true, good and beautiful. A fully alive person has the freedom to choose the right path and does what they ought to do with joy. The fully alive person is a person of virtue. There are four cardinal virtues which are the virtues that enable us to live as a moral person.
Help us Lord today to develop the Cardinal Virtue of Prudence within ourselves and on our team. Dear God, we ask for your grace to work on developing the Cardinal Virtue of Prudence. In sport there are many opportunities for decisions. As a Christian athlete, help us to make the right decisions even when our coach or the officials are not looking. This means never seeking an unfair advantage, but playing with integrity and honesty at all times.
In your name we pray to grow in the virtue of prudence while playing for the glory of God.
