"Dear Lord ,
I may need your help today. You see, I'm really worn out from all the baseball games and a little edgy when it comes to bad umpiring, stupid coaches (of course from the other teams) and somewhat tired of embarrassing parents (of course from the other teams).
We are playing another baseball game today Lord. I bet you already knew that though. ;)
I got a little worked up in a game yesterday and maybe said a few things I shouldn't have. Don't worry, Father, I didn't embarrass myself too much. I really just need to settle myself down a bit today. This dern 1st base coach for the other time drove me NUTS yesterday! He was somethin else Lord so he may need an extra dose of patience and discernment today too.
Thank you, Father, for the opportunity my children have. And I praise you through it all, but I pray that I don't say things under my breath today like I did yesterday. I think I muttered something like, "you stupid coach. shut up."
Forgive me, Lord, of the short temper, ugly attitude (even though I kept it quite hidden and reserved for only one other momma) and maybe somewhat ugly thoughts I had about our opposing teams parents. They really were a bit obnoxious.
I obviously need a tad bit more of you today, Lord. I also think I need a tad bit more of the Holy Spirit today too, Lord. Whenever you see me running low, can you just instantly fill me up before I ask?
Thank you for a beautiful day and for watching over our boys today. I want to do better today, Lord. Thank you for loving me anyway.
In Jesus Name I pray....
