Coaches Prayer 1

Lord,
When I pick up the whistle, lace up my shoes and walk out of the locker room, I coach for You alone. There is no turning back. In every victory and every defeat, I celebrate Your goodness and greatness. The way I coach demonstrates my love for You. I stand for the cross and declare my loyalty to You. I coach for You.
My energy and enthusiasm come from the Holy Spirit. My purpose and passion come from above. Through the strain and struggle, I never give up or give in. The champion inside of me is Jesus who gives me strength. Winning is honoring You in all I do. I coach for You.
When I coach, I feel Your pleasure. My heart longs for Your applause alone. All of my abilities are from You. I am under Your authority as my Ultimate Coach. I will respect and honor all competitors, coaches, and officials. I compete by all of the rules. I coach for You.
My coaching is my offering to my Savior. I am Your warrior in the heat of battle. I am humble in victory and gracious in defeat. I coach to serve You, my athletes, and our opponents. My words bring healing and refreshment that inspire and motivate. I speak words of life. I coach for You.
Success isn’t a winning program, but seeing the power of Christ transform the lives of my athletes. Victory is not the scoreboard, but for my athletes to become more like You. Bless my athletes in great ways and increase their faith and confidence. I coach for You.
In the name of Jesus, I pray.
Amen.

Coaches Prayer 2

Dear Lord,
Guide me as I try to coach this team, to build each player’s character, and boost their self-esteem. May I keep an even temper and remember it’s just a game. Let me not have favorite players but treat them all the same.
Amen.

Coaches Prayer 3

Dear God,
As the kids put on their gym clothes and prepare for today’s practice, let us put on the belt of justice and faithfulness. Let us be champions of the children we coach today. Let them see justice and kindness. Help our gym to be a place where all children feel welcome and included. Let it be a place where all children can meet without fear of being left out or bullied. Let our gym be a place where children look after each other and feel safe and encouraged. Let our gym be a place where our children grow strong and compete fiercely, like lions , but each with warmth and acceptance like lambs.
Amen.

Coaches Prayer 5

Heavenly Father,
We ask that you help our team to grow in the virtue of humility this season. Help each of us individually, as coaches and players, to glorify God for our talents and gifts while working hard to realize those God-given talents to the best of our ability. Help us always to seek God’s will in how we use our talents and gifts for the good of others and help us to submit to the authority of our coaches, parents, and others who truly want us to realize these gifts. Grant that we may become more humble through our practice and games this week. We ask this through Christ our Lord.
Amen.
