Help me to be a good sport in the Game of Life. I do not ask for
any easy place in the lineup. Put me anywhere YOU need me. I only
ask that I can give YOU a 100% of everything I have.
If all the hard drives seem to
have come my way, I thank YOU for the compliment. Help me remember
that YOU never send a player more trouble than he can handle. And,
help me, LORD, to accept the bad breaks as part of the game. May
I always play on the square, no matter what the others do, help
me to study The Book so I will know the rules.
Finally God, if the events in life
goes against me and I am benched for sickness or old age, or financial
loss, help me to accept that as part of the game too. Help me from
whimpering that I was framed or 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 did not let YOU down.
