PrayBC - Olympic Prayer Guide - Day 12

Never Alone

The Olympics involve some sports that call for individual effort and others that call for partners and teams working together. But even the individuals know that they did not get to where they are on their own. There were coaches, trainers, nutritionists, governments providing funding, families and friends backing them up, and more.

Whether it is the bobsled team, synchronized swim team, volleyball team, rowing team, or hockey team, each person has a specific role to play and specific skills they have developed to use for the team to function properly. Depending on one’s teammates is not always easy as there are personality conflicts, different tastes, conflicting values and opposing opinions. But to win, each person must learn to do what is best for the team and submit their will to the will of the coach and the team.

Prayer: Father, thank You for all those You have brought into my life to encourage and bless and guide me to this place. Please give me wisdom and patience and help me show respect, appreciation, and love for those You have brought to walk with me in these days.
