A November to Remember
Blessing IX 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.
From sin and death,
from every ailment and all the assault of the enemy,
deliver us now and forever,
O Lord, our Defender,
and never allow us to falter
in our battle today against the Bulldogs of Butler.
Grant that our legs and feet will be limber,
our brawn will be full of vigor,
our spirit will be stronger,
so that made bolder by the grace that comes from You,
the universe’s Prime Mover,
we, Your Eagles, may work today ever more cohesively,
play on that field ever so skillfully,
hammer down on our rivals even more forcefully,
and, together as a team and with You as our leader,
make this a November to remember.
Let us sing of Your goodness, O God, now and forever,
for Your gifts to us are beyond number,
Your guidance in our lives knows no slumber,
Your mighty name is the very meaning of splendor.
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.
