Athlete’s Prayer

The Athlete’s prayer

Lord, please clear my head of all distraction
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 turn their eyes to You o Lord
And to the Glory of Your Name
