Father in Heaven, help me to do your will in my role as a sports parent. May I be for my young athlete a source of encouragement and strength. May I help my child to grow in their faith while supporting their development in skill. May I be a positive partner to my child’s coaches, supporting them in their effort to teach and develop all the children on the team. May I be positive in my support at practices and games, Even when this is difficult. And may my example lead other parents to do the same. In all things may I strive to imitate the example of the Blessed Virgin Mary and Saint Joseph in their devotion and care for the child Jesus. Through their intercession and in Jesus name I pray, Amen.
