A Prayer of Thanksgiving for Parents


Lord,

Thank you for the gift of my children,

and for the opportunity they have to participate in sports.

Thank you for the ways in which these sports

help them to grow in faith and virtue as well as skill.

Thank you for the friends they make,

and the community they share in.

Thank you for their physical growth,

for the gift of play and for their health.

Thank you for the joy that playing these games brings to these children,

and the ways in which they glorify you through their play.

Thank you also for the joy that it brings to me,

to watch them experience this play,

and to see them grow and develop.

In Jesus Name I Pray, Amen.
