A Cheerleader’s Prayer
Now I lay me down to rest
I’ve tried my hardest and done my best
To tumble, jump, dance, and cheer,
With the sharpest of motions
And no trace of fear
I know in the morning my body will ache
But, for what I love it’s
A price I gladly pay.
Thank you God for making me strong
With determination and commitment
When practices are long.
And Lord if I shall
Die before I wake,
I’ll know I’ve shown the world,
Cheerleaders were born, not made!
A Cheerleader’s Prayer
When the music starts,
And we stand proud and true.
Please, let the judges
Like what we do!!!
Will you help me stay in rhythm
And not lose my count!!
For I dread they may see me
And maybe point me out!!!
It can only make me better,
This I know is not so bad,
But the looks from my Coach’s
Could almost kill my Dad!!
Ask not for just myself,
But for the whole team.
That we may win this competition
And realie our dream.
We are a little nervous,
But we will be fine…
Just let us march together
And in straight lines.
Our hearts are tried and true,
Our price and spirit no one can match,
There is a price that must be paid
For the tosses we did not catch!
And when the show is almost over
And the fans are on their feet,
Keep me smiling that same smile
Even though I cannot breathe!!!
A Cheerleaders Prayer
God before we compete today,
we come together as a team to pray.
Please watch over us from music start to finish,
it won’t take that long just about three minutes.
God, all we really want is some help to succeed,
so here's a little list of the things that we need:
We pray for..
Stunts that are solid and tight.
Arms that remain by our side.
Flyers that are confident.
High "V's" that are never bent.
Cradles that are caught up high.
pointed jumps that truly fly.
Tosses that soar through the air.
Judges that areknowledgeable and fair.
Spacing that is on the money.
Energy that’s like The Bunny!
Motions that are sharp and snap.
A loud crowd that likes to clap.
Voices that deeply shout.
Thumbs that do not stick out.
No bumps that happen while we're passing.
Smiles that are everlasting!
Endurance that keeps us strong.
Teamwork that can’t go wrong.
But mostly God, we'd like to have
A routine that is injury free.
And if you see it in your heart
A first place trophy for my team and me!
So God, when your work is done,
And your no longer needed here,
just take this little thought with you
Why Can’t We All …Just Cheer?!
