As our child embarks upon this journey with a new team,
we ask your protection and blessing.
We thank you for this opportunity.
Please calm his/her nerves and give him/her courage.
We pray that he/she might embrace this new team,
as the team embraces him/her.
May he/she make new friends, learn new skills, and have fun.
May this new environment bring all the benefits of sport,
and joys of competition.
Be with us also as we interact with other parents,
that this community may be one where You are always present.
May this experience bring joy to our child and family.
