    Players Prayer



    Dear God,

    Help me be a good sport in the game of life

    I didn*t ask for any easy place in the lineup; put me anywhere you
    need me

    I only ask that I can give you a hundred percent of everything I have

    If all the hard drives seem to come my way, I thank you for the
    compliment

    Help me remember that you never send a player more trouble than she can
    handle

    Finally, God, if the natural turn of events goes against me, and I*m
    benched for sickness or old age, help me accept that as a part of the
    game too

    Keep me from whimpering that I got a raw deal, and when I finish the
    final inning, I ask for no laurels

    All I want is to believe in my heart that I played as well as I could
    and that I never let you down
    it was time for a change

    The Ball Players Prayer

    by Hal Skinner

    God grant me wisdom,
    to tell a strike from a ball,
    to know where to throw
    and never to fall.

    Keep me always in the base line,
    running straight and true
    and I'll look for your sign,
    to stretch one into two.

    God give me vision,
    to see every pitch,
    so if a player needs help,
    then I will see which.

    Let me always hustle,
    so I'll be at my best
    and take pride in myself,
    in sports and the rest.

    God be my strength,
    when I throw the ball
    when I'm far from home plate,
    or against a wall.

    So I never miss a base,
    please guide my feet,
    bring me home safely,
    so my job is complete.

    When I help younger players,
    let me always give praise,
    so they'll see you in me,
    in all of my ways.

    God please guide our coach,
    to be fair and smart,
    to teach us to be good,
    let it come from his heart.

    Let me take a loss,
    just as well as a win,
    to do any less,
    is surely a sin.

    As long as I can play,
    let me make my parents proud,
    as proud as I am,
    when they yell my name out loud.

    However my games end,
    let me always have fun
    and if Heaven has All Stars,
    I want to be one.

    When my games here are over
    and my seasons are done,
    let me play on your team.
    just like your son.

    And always keep me a SweetHeart in my parent's eyes.

    Amen.

    And of course, my favorite, I have this posted on the wall going downstairs....

    It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by the dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions and spends himself in a worthy course; who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who, at worst,if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly; so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat. Theodore Roosevelt
