LOPEZ
OPENING PRAYER IN LAPRISA
ESS Gymnasium October 1, 2016
Let us put ourselves in the holy presence of God
And adore his holy name.
In the name of the Father, and of the Son and
Of the Holy Spirit. AMEN
Heavenly Father, be with each one of us as we test our physical
skills.
Let us play well, but fairly.
Let competition make us strong, but never hostile.
Grant us the strength to best our opponent, and lead us to always
help the opponent up.
Grant us moments to rejoice, but not in the adversity of others.
Help us stay safe from injury, both physical and emotional.
Help us to learn something that matters once the game is over.
Help us remember that sports are just games.
If we become victorious, allow us to be happy.
If we are denied, keep us from envy.
If through us athletics, we set an example, let it be a good one.
In the name of Your Son, Jesus
Amen.
