A Coach's Prayer of Thanksgiving


Lord,

Thank you for this opportunity to coach these children.

Thank you for bestowing on me this great responsibility,

and for entrusting your children to me.

May I never lose sight of the blessing this is,

nor take for granted the time I spend with them.

Help me to recognize the role I have,

in shaping them not just as athletes,

but as children of God.

Under my care,

may they grow in skill,

but also in faith and virtue.

Father in Heaven,

Grant that I may have a positive and grateful attitude

in all my work with these children.

May my words and actions convey how much I care.

I ask this through Christ, our Lord.

Amen.
