Pre-Game Opening Prayer

Father in Heaven, we ask your blessing

on the game we are about to play. 

Give each one of us the courage to play this game
in a manner which
by our words and our actions
is pleasing to you.

Let us enter into this competition
in a spirit of sportsmanship and
with a respect for the members of the opposing team.

We ask You, Father to bless each one of us,
especially the coaches, officials,
parents and players.

Keep us under the protection of your son, Jesus Christ,
and help us be aware of his presence with us in this game.

Amen

Post-Game Closing Prayer

Thank You Lord for this game.

We hope we played
and will always play
in a manner that is pleasing to you.

Amen
