Prayer of Thanksgiving for a victory.


After last Friday night's football victory over Mukwonago, Fr. Philip Schumaker, associate pastor of St. John Vianney in Brookfield, and football team chaplain leads the players an coaches in a prayer of thanksgiving.

Before every game, the team takes time to recite the CMH Team Prayer -

Heavenly Father,

Our Life, Health, and Abilities are gifts from you.
Give us the courage to devote each,
not to our own gain, but to your glory.

Let us compete today with all our heart, mind, body, and soul.

If you choose, allow victory to come as a blessing and reward;
but, if necessary, assist us to learn integrity in defeat.

Keep all players safe this day.

Allow us to give our best as a memorial
to those who have given their all for our sake.

Leader:/ St. Sebastian, patron of athletes,
R:/ Pray for Us.

L:/ Our Lady of Memorial, R:/ Pray for Us.

L:/ Our Lady of Victory, R:/ Pray for Us

L:/ We make this prayer through Christ our Lord.

Amen.
