Extras :: Athlete's Prayer

If you're a competitive athlete engaging in any sport, Spradley recommends praying this prayer before all competitions:

Lord, Please clear my head of all distractions
And my heart of burdens I may bear,
So I may perform my very best
Knowing you will always be there.

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 You and only You.

Then when all eyes are upon me,
At the end of this big game,
I will turn their eyes to You oh Lord,
And to the Glory of Your Name...

In Jesus Christ's name I pray, Amen!
