A Prayer for Parents
Lord, I ask you to bless my son (daughter) as he (she) participates in this athletic season.
Help him to have a safe and fun experience.
May he learn new skills and grow mentally, physically, morally and spiritually.
May both practices and games be full of joy and learning.
I pray that he may embrace his teammates as they embrace him,
Striving together to grow and to achieve their goals.
Keep him safe from injury and help him to have courage when the task is difficult.
Grant that I may have the graces I need as a parent to provide for him what he needs in this journey
and to lovingly support him in this endeavor.
May he always use the gifts you have given him for the purpose you desire
and may I do the same as his parent.
I ask all this through Christ, our Lord.
