Prayer for Competition

“Lord, I compete for You alone. In every victory and every loss, I play for You. Every time I compete, I stand for the cross. My love for the game is evidence of my love for You. I play for You, Lord, when I put on the uniform, lace up the shoes and walk out of the locker room. I declare my loyalty to You.

“My drive comes from the Holy Spirit. Through the pain and through the cheers, I will not give in or give up. My passion for competition comes from above. I sweat for the One who made me. The champion inside of me is Jesus. My only goal is to glorify the name of Christ. To win is to honor Him.

“I feel Your delight when I compete. All of my abilities are from You, Jesus. My heart yearns for Your applause. I am under Your authority. I will respect and honor my teammates, coaches and opponents. I will play by the rules. I will submit to You as my Ultimate Coach.

“I am Your warrior in the heat of battle. I am humble in victory and gracious in defeat. I serve those on my team and those I compete against. My words inspire and motivate. I utter what You desire. My body is Your temple; nothing enters my body that is not honoring to You. I train to bring You glory. My sweat is an offering to my heavenly Master.

“I wear Your jersey, Lord. Victory does not lie in winning but in becoming more like You. There is no greater victory. In Your name, I pray. Amen.”
