Heavenly Father, You have graciously endowed me with a healthy body and the ability to play team games for which I thank You with all my heart. Thank You for the opportunities to join in the fun and activities that come from participating in team sports.
Guard me from any worldly attitudes that others in the team may display and help me I pray to be a good and faithful witness to Your greatness and power in the games that I play.
Give me the ability to play in a fair and considerate manner, Help me to develop the right team spirit and a keenness to do my very best, without nurturing a wrong attitude towards other teams and members who may be better or worse than I.
May You be ever before my eyes so that I do not elevate the sport or my position into an idol – but let me participate in a manner that is always pleasing to You,
