Let Them Soar

Blessing IV 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.

Lord of sea and sky,
keep these Eagles of Morehead in Your care
as they fly today to Des Moines, Iowa,
to fight the Bulldogs of Drake University.
Let them soar even higher on that faraway field.
Let them show everyone there
how hard they have worked
to get to where they are now,
how much they would want
to go even further.

O Divine Master,
keep them disciplined on that field.
Keep them determined in their game.
Keep them driven to win.

Savior of the world,
safely take these Men of Morehead to their destination
and bring them home rejoicing
because Your blessings know no end,
because Your mercy endures forever (cf. Ps. 107:1).

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.

P: The Lord be with you.
R: And with your spirit.

P: May Almighty God bless you, the Father, + and the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
R: Amen.

P: Go in peace.
R: Thanks be to God.
