Better Us, Lord
Blessing III for the Morehead State University Eagles Football Team
P: Our help is in the name of the Lord.
R: Who made Heaven and earth (Ps. 124:8).
Let us pray.
O Good and Gracious God,
who from the beginning made the universe
not only to be good but to be very good (cf. Gen. 1:31),
and made each of us on this team to be good at this game,
urge us never to settle for what is good enough
but to seek and strive in every season
to do better and to be better.
On this Family weekend,
when we are surrounded by those who want the best for us
and worked hard so that we might enjoy it,
boost us with Your blessing
to give our best for them on the field.
Better us then, Lord, that we might best the Lions of Lincoln University.
Better us, Lord, that we might breach through every barrier.
Better us, Lord, that we might block all who will try to bring us down.
Better us, Lord, that we might be worthy to be called
the brothers of Your only begotten Son, our Lord Jesus Christ,
who lives and reigns with You, in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God forever and ever. Amen.
