The ‘Coach’s Prayer’

While Coach And Athletic Director visited Arrowhead High School (Hartland, Wisconsin), writers came across this picture in the athletic office.


Coach’s Prayer

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.

Grant me patience with them as I pause them or correct. Remember that I must work to earn each one’s respect.

Lord, whether we may win or lose may all who are watching see, the kind of coach at every game that you would have me be.
