Heavenly Father, you sent John the Baptist to preach and baptize so that the world could be prepared for the coming of your Son, Jesus Christ. Help us to do our part in the world today to teach people about Jesus and help us to share the message of the gospel by how we talk, act and play on our team in this season. May we always put God first in our lives and work to lead others to Him. Bless our team that we may learn and grow in our skill as well as our faith. Amen.
