A Coach's Prayer


Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.

Where there is frustration, let me show patience.

Where there is confusion, clarity.

Where there is struggle, support.

Where there is success, celebration.

Where there is doubt, faith.

And where there is hurt, love.

Oh Divine Masters, grant that I may

Greet each athlete as a child of God,

Find joy and fun in my relationship with them,

And seek to learn as much as I coach, model and teach.

Amen.
