A Prayer for Athletes & Teams

Heavenly Father, we ask that you help our team to grow in the virtue of humility this season. Help each of us individually, as coaches and players, to glorify God for our talents and gifts while working hard to realize those God-given talents to the best of our ability. Help us always to seek God's will in how we use our talents and gifts for the good of others and help us to submit to the authority of our coaches, parents, and others who truly want us to realize these gifts. Grant that we may become more humble through our practice and games this week. We ask this through Christ our Lord, Amen.
