Prayer for Athletes
Father, creator of all, you are the center of all life. Everything in this world points to you and leads us to you. Today we ask you for the grace to keep you at the center of our lives and the center of our sport team so that we can use you as the reference point of all our thoughts, words, and actions. Help us to get our individual selves out of the center of attention, and put you there. In serving you as individuals, we hope to give our best selves to all whom we encounter this day. In serving you as a team, we seek to give glory to your name through our play and our teamwork.
