Football Players Prayer
(a prayer for a football team to say before a game)

O God,

Our team is built upon good foundations of love, respect, trust and excellence. Remind us as we play today that our squad is strong, our brotherhood united and our club spirit is one of truth and love.

May we work together to be the best we can be, to play fairly and to respect every player in the game.

Thank You for watching over us. Keep us all safe and guard us from injury. Lord, whether we win or lose today, may Your love triumph over all.

In Jesus name.


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.
