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.
2 Timothy 2:5 “Similarly, an athlete cannot receive the winner’s crown except by competing according to the rules.”
Prayer: Lord, may I strive to follow your commands, to be obedient to you so that I may truly be free from sin. Amen.
