Seize this Day

Blessing VII 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.

We turn to You, O Savior of the world,
knowing that all eyes will be on us today
as Eagles from the past, the present, and the future
gather in Morehead’s nest for homecoming.
The Eagles of the past have come to watch our team
build on the solid legacy that they have left us.
The Eagles of the present have come to cheer us
to a victory that will be worth recounting long after this day.
The Eagles of the future have come to see
the kind of character and camaraderie that they will want to be a part of.

Send us out then, Lord, to that stadium
to seize this day
and outfox the Red Foxes of Marist College
in a game that will make the past proud,
the present awed,
and the future envious.

Let us be filled with Your grace
so that the way we play this game
may give glory to Your Name.
Let this day end with all of us
singing a song of Your salvation
and yearning for that ultimate homecoming in Your Kingdom.

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.
