A Prayer for Those Who Play Sports


O God,

We Pray for all who participate in youth and high school sports.

May their hearts be open to see your presence in and through the gift of sport.

May their minds remember the element of fun reflective of your spirit.

May their bodies reflect the gracefulness and wonder of your creation.

Let all who compete be enriched by your presence on the course, in the gym,

on the field or on the track.

Amen.
