The Coach’s Prayer


Heavenly Father guide me
As I try to coach this team
To build each other’s character
And boost their self-esteem.

May I keep an even temper
And remember it’s a game.
Let me not have favorite players
But treat them all the same

Grant me patient wisdom
As I praise them or correct
Remembering that I must work
To earn each one’s respect.

Lord, whether we may win or lose,
May all who are watching see
The kind of coach at every game
That you would like me to be.
