The Athlete's Prayer


Lord, please clear my head of all distractions

And my heart of burdens I may bear,

So I may perform my very best,

Knowing You'll always be there.

Please lift me up before the moment,

So through Your eyes I may see,

And have a clearer understanding,

As the game unfolds before me.

With great courage I will meet this challenge,

As You would have me to,

But keep me humble and remind me,

That my strength comes from knowing You.

Then when all eyes are upon me,

At the end of this game,

I will return their eyes to You O'Lord,

And to the glory of Your Name.

Amen.
