A Prayer for Those Involved in Sports

O God, you gave us bodies—
as well as minds and hearts—
with which to praise and worship you.

Our sports and exercises are a fitting use of gifts
and talents you have given us.

Bless our workouts and the games we play,
and those with whom we exercise or compete.

Give us strength, endurance, courage
and agility as we compete or train.

Keep us safe and healthy as we celebrate
our physical and mental skills in sport.
