Meditations on Scripture for Sport
Over the next several days, join us as we meditate on scripture verses that relate to competition and sport. We invite you to simply read the scripture in a spirit of prayer, considering how this relates to your own life and role as an athlete, parent, coach or administrator. Ask God to help you grow closer to Him through an understanding of his Holy Word and pray that this scripture may inspire you in the days to come. A short prayer follows each verse.
Hebrews 12:1 “Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us rid ourselves of every burden and sin that clings to us and persevere in running the race that lies before us while keeping our eyes fixed on Jesus.”
Prayer: Lord, may we always keep our hearts, our eyes and our minds focused on you. Give us the graces we need this day to run the race that you call us to run. Amen.
