It's all about attitude

My oldest son is in a basketball camp at Union University. A fine program at a fine school. So glad he is going. He came home with a sheet of paper all about "attitude." Yeah...I could use a new one a lot of days. Each day of the camp has a new focus. I thought if your kids need a prayer for attitude in whatever they have going on this summer, you could copy and paste this and print it out.

This prayer happens to be titled "The Athletes Prayer".......

Lord, please clear my head of all distractions, and my heart of burdens I may bear, so I may perform my very best, knowing you'll always be there.

Please lift me up before the moment, so through Your eyes I may see, and have a clearer understanding, as the game unfolds before me.

With great courage I will meet this challenge, as you would have me to, but keep me humble and remind me, that my strength comes from knowing you.

Then when all eyes are upon me, at the end of this big game, I will turn their eyes to You O'Lord, and to the glory of Your name,

In Jesus Name, Amen.

You don't have to be an athlete to use this prayer....I think it could apply to any of us!

"As water reflects a face so a man's heart reflects the man." Proverbs 27:19

Hugs and blessings~
