Athlete about to run

Let love fill my lungs
(a prayer for an athlete to say before a race)

Let love fill my lungs as I breathe for this race,
Let joy fill the sails of my heart.
Let faith be the wind that I feel on my face,
Let peace be my shield at the start.

Let hope flood my mind and grace give me strength,
Let me run in the land of my dreams.
Let praise be the sound that fills up my soul,
Let me be all of this now for You.

Coaches prayer for players
(a prayer poem for a manager or coach to say. Suitable for team sports such as baseball, football or basketball.)

Dear Lord,

Father in Heaven, I give You my team,
And ask that You make us as one.
One in rhythm, one in heart, as we each play our part,
Together to get the job done.

Father in Heaven, I lay down my hopes,
And ask that You lead us today.
Come bring out the best in each player we have,
To respond to each moment of play.

Father in Heaven, bless us we pray,
We've trained hard and worked to be here.
Come give us Your strength, in attack and defence,
With You there is nothing to fear.
