Lord, we thank you for your great mercy and love for us. We thank you that we may be at this practice and participating with our friends in this game. Help us to forgive others as you forgive us and may we always be grateful for the times when you have showed us mercy and saved us from sin. Bless our practice with safety and fun today so that we can learn and work to the best of our abilities. We ask this through Christ, our Lord. Amen.
