Lord, I thank you for the gift of this team.
For each child and their unique personalities,
For the gifts and talents that each of them bring to this team,
and for the opportunity to spend time with them during practices and games.
I ask you to bless me in my role as a coach.
I pray that I may have the grace and wisdom I need
to provide for each child what they need to grow.
That through my teaching each of these children
may reach their potential and maximize the gifts that you have given them.
May I be slow to anger in my coaching,
and quick to be positive and encouraging.
May I coach in a way that each child knows how much I care,
that they may truly enjoy the experience of this team,
finding great joy in practices and games.
Be with me Lord as I coach this team.
