Heavenly Father, we thank you for the gift of our team and this game we play together. May we be steadfast in working toward our goals and determined in our effort to grow together through this journey. Grant us the grace we need to be good teammates, that our contributions to this team may make others better and that the experience may be more fruitful because of our participation. Give us the courage to sacrifice for the good of the team when necessary and the wisdom to know when to do so. May we follow the example of your son Jesus as we interact with each other every day. We ask this through Christ, our Lord.
