Giver of Every Gift
Thanksgiving I for the Morehead State University Eagles Football Team
P: Give thanks to the Lord for He is good.
R: His mercy endures forever (Ps. 107:1).
Let us pray.
We give You thanks, O Giver of every gift,
for the opportunity to prove ourselves tonight on that field.
Your grace pushed us to play better against the Lincoln Lions
and it has given our school and our families
another reason to be proud of our team.
Now that we have that game behind us,
we ask You, O God, to sustain us
with Your strength from on high
so that we, Your eagles of Morehead,
may continue to soar even higher.
Extend Your hand to heal what hurts
and to soothe what is sore.
Take our bruised bodies
and make them stronger and swifter.
Take our tired team and make us
even more determined and disciplined
to deal with the Drake Bulldogs next week.
O Giver of every gift: You did not fail to bless us today.
May we never fail to praise and thank You everyday.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son,
who lives and reigns with You, in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God forever and ever. Amen.
