Always With You
Dear God Our Father,
Help me to wisely use the gifts and
Talents that You have so graciously
Bestowed upon me.
Create in me Dear Lord;
The right attitude with which to
Excel in any endeavor.
A firm belief in You, Our Savior, that
Through You I can do great things.
A strong desire to never quit, no
Matter what the odds.
A willingness to give 100% of myself
To You and to others at all times.
Dear Lord, bestow in me a
True understanding that, with
You beside me, there is no end
To what I can achieve.
A Skater’s Prayer
Please let me remember on the skating floor,
That conceit and vanity make me a bore.
Let me consider my fellow man,
And whenever possible lend a hand.
Let me remember during all skates,
That the struggling beginner deserves the breaks.
To break my pattern is better by far,
Than another skater’s bruises and scars.
Keep me always watchful and alert,
So impending accidents I can avert.
Let me always be courteous with a friendly smile.
Let me do my part to make skating worthwhile.
