Dear God, As the kids put on their gym clothes and prepare for today’s practice, let us put on the belt of justice and faithfulness. Let us be champions of the children we coach today. Let them see justice and kindness. Help our gym to be a place where all children feel welcome and included. Let it be a place where all children can meet without fear of being left out or bullied. Let our gym be a place where children look after each other and feel safe and encouraged. Let our gym be a place where our children grow strong and compete fiercely, like lions , but each with warmth and acceptance like lambs. Amen.
