Prayer Before Race Day

God, please give me the strength and will
Help me run my best
Please help me climb this mental hill
Tonight please give me rest

I’ll give it all my body has
And all that my heart has too
I run because I love it
And I’ll run because of You

Father, please forgive me
For things that I’ve done wrong
And Father please support me
When I’m trying to be strong


I run because I love it
Even though there’s pain
I want to do my best and win
But I’ll take a loss the same

Father, please be with me
When I’m standing at the start
And when I’m racing hard
I’ll feel you in my heart

Please be with our team tomorrow
Help us do our best
Please give us the energy
And we will do the rest

We run because we love it
We all know that is true
We do it to get stronger
We run because of you.

Amen.
