The Discipline of a Disciple
Blessing V 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.
who call men of every age
to follow You and be Your disciples
and, through Your grace and the practice of the Faith,
instill in them the discipline
to face any force or foe
and triumph over every trial and tribulation,
grant the discipline of a disciple
upon us, Your Men of Morehead,
who hearken to Your call and seek to follow You,
that we may be, after our rigorous and vigorous practice,
as determined as Your disciples of old
in our duel today with the Crusaders of Valparaiso University.
kindle in us now the discipline to drive through these Crusaders’ defense.
Kindle in us now the discipline to deter our rivals’ offense.
Kindle in us now the discipline to deliver and dominate today on that field
to the pride of our parents,
the honor of our school,
and the glory of Your Name.
Who lives and reigns with the Father,
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.
