Prayer for the Olympics

With the Olympic Games set to open in London this Friday at 6:30 PM CDT, we are less than three days away to the start of one of the greatest shows of athleticism in the world.  Please join me in praying for all of the men and women who will be competing in these games, that they will be safe from harm and humble in their accomplishments.

For all athletes out there, I recommend the Prayers Before and After Work to be said before and after an athletic competition.  May God be glorified in all things.

Before Work 

O Lord Jesus Christ, Only-begotten Son of your eternal Father: You have said with your holy lips: "Without Me, you can do nothing." My Lord, I embrace your words with my heart and soul, and bow before your goodness and say: Help me, your unworthy servant, to complete this, my present undertaking, in the name of the Father and of the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen.

After Work 

O Most sweet Jesus, You are the fulfillment of all blessings. Fill my soul with joy and gladness and save me. Grant that your Name be glorified: for not to us, but to your Name are forever due honor, glory, and adoration. Amen
