Prayer Ideas for Players
Yesterday, I sent an email to the people participating in the Pray 4 Players project. I sent an email with some of the things I had been praying for with the guys. Many of the team responded with ideas of their own. I thought I would share them with everyone so that we might pray for specifically and helpfully for our fellas.
Suggestions include: (in no particular order)
-For protection while they are practicing and playing. Also protection off the field.
-If they don't know Christ, that they might come to know Him
- For the ones that do know Him- to be strong in their faith and be a light to the others, and to have a lasting ' Kingdom Impact'
- To resist temptations and be a strong example for others
-For grades and school work
-For their families
-For healing for sick, injured, and those with other ailments (infections, etc)
-For the players to listen to the good influences in their lives
- For the players TO BE the good influence
-I would like others to have a special prayer for Shon Coleman, even if he isn't on your list. Pray that the cancer stays away and that he can be a shining example for others who have the dreaded disease and the opportunity he has to inspire others.
-For any sadness or isolation the players might feel
Just pray how you feel led. I know that God takes our efforts and can make them into something far beyond what we can do ourselves.
Scott asked for a special prayer for his wife. She has MS.
If you know a player on another team that has a specific prayer need, please let us know.
Various are looking for the following on twitter so, if you happen to know their twitter handle, let me know.
If you did not send me your twitter handle, please send it when you can. I am trying to make us a twitter list so we can contact each other!
**If you are reading this and have not signed up, it is never too late. We will always listen to someone who wants to pray for our guys.
Hope all of you are having a great week.
