A Baseball Prayer
Lord, we are mindful today of America’s favorite game. As a matter of fact we live it all the while.
As we stand at the plate each and every day, we pray for more hits than misses. If now and again we drop the ball or make an error or two, we ask your indulgence and for whatever it takes to play a little better next time around.
If once in a awhile the cheers of the crowd could be for ourselves, we would not be disappointed, but give us the good sense to remember that we are, most of the time, part of a team in what we do.
We do not ask that life will be one long string of grand-slams, but we do pray that through your grace and the strength we can give, our batting average will be enough to make a person proud.
And when the game is about over and the last play is being made, we pray..above all else...that you may find us sliding safely home.
