Geez, I sound like a party pooper. Sorry about that. Didn't mean to rain on anybody's parade.

Soccer Player Prayer
Lord you made my neck a swivel
Help me not to ball watch
But rather scan the field
With the wisdom to anticipate
When my teammates need support
Running quickly to my mate
For many are needed for possession
But also let me see
The path of the through ball
To devastate our opponents
Please give me the strength
To make my share of runs
Showing for the ball handler
For quick distribution
Give me the sense
To play safe near our goal
But also give me the courage
To take on the foe's defenders
Let me peek at their goalie
Before I shoot
First touch if I can
But if I ever needed help lord
Its with low hard shots
To the far post
Should we lose the ball
Let me nimbly regain it
But if not tackling an opponent
To markup quickly
And if I'm outnumbered
Please give me patience
Not to sell my body
But delay for my teammates
Who I trust to aid me
As I have faith in you lord
But above all
Help us to get through this game
With fun and without injury
Respecting the ref
So we can play these guys
One more time
