Lord God, our Heavenly Father,
We thank you for this opportunity to gather together this afternoon/evening in competition. We ask that all of those involved today/ tonight may conduct themselves in a God-pleasing manner and show good sportsmanship despite the outcome. Lord, we thank you for the gifts and abilities you have blessed these athletes with, and we pray that they may use them to glorify You. We ask that all involved in today’s/tonight’s game may be kept free from injuries and that You will be with us as we leave this place today/tonight.
All this we pray in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
