Dear Lord, we thank you for the gift of this team and the journey we are about to embark upon. As we begin this season, we ask that you be with us every step of the way. Bless our practice and games and grant us protection from injury. Grant us focus and determination in our effort to improve. Keep us humble in our success and lift us up when we fall. Help us to grow as individuals, as teammates and as friends. Most importantly, may we glorify you in all that we do and remember to have fun playing this game you have given us. In Jesus name we pray.
