Father in Heaven,
We ask Your blessing on the game we are about to play. Give each one of us the courage to play the game in a manner, which by our words and our actions, is pleasing to You. Let us enter into the competition in a spirit of sportsmanship And with respect for members of the opposing team. We ask you Father, to bless each one of us And especially the coaches, officials and players. Keep us under the protection of Your Son, Jesus Christ, And help us to be aware of His presence with us in the game.
