All praise to You, Lord Jesus, Lover of children: Bless our family, And help us to lead our children to You.
May the gift of sport in which our children participate,
Be for our family a source of fun and a way to glorify You.
May we support our children in all the efforts,
And help make sports a path to grow in holiness. Give us light and strength, And courage when our task as parents is difficult. Let Your Spirit fill us with love and peace, So that we may help our children to love You. All glory and praise are Yours, Lord Jesus, For ever and ever. Amen.
