Prayer for Players

Father in Heaven, give me words to speak that will encourage and challenge the athletes that come to this blog. Help them to see your glory and the hope that is in your son, Jesus Christ. I pray you would change hearts, and motivate young men and women to play their sports for your honor, glory, and pleasure. Inspire them with your love to share the Gospel with their teammates and friends. Help them flee from sin in their lives and let their lives be witnesses to your power on the field and off the field. Give them a heart of a champion that desires to compete for you. God, I pray that people would watch these young men and women play their sport and notice a difference in them. The difference is you Lord. Do a work. Use this blog to communicate who you are, who we are in you, and how we should compete as Christian athletes.
