An Athlete's Prayer



“Run as to win,” St. Paul instructed the Corinthians. In your example St. Paul, help us remember that the discipline it takes to endure the process of physically training our bodies through athletics also relates to the discipline needed in our spiritual lives. As we play athletics and we compete to win, help us be ever mindful that our true training is to win the ultimate grace of living forever with Jesus in heaven.

Amen.
