Ten Sticks Lacrosse
Creator, thank you for this game.
Thank you for our lives that let us play it.
Help us today to honor your game.
May our playing of it make us
stronger and better men of character.
Thank you for our teammates and our opponents.
May we together bring out the best in one another
as competitors and as friends.
Creator, keep us safe and heal our injuries.
May our game be pleasing and honorable to you.
The Lacrosse Prayer
God has given us this day to do with it as we will.
We can waste it or use it for good.
What happens today is important
because we are trading a day of our lives for it.
When tomorrow comes, today will be gone forever,
leaving behind what we have traded.
We want it to be good not evil, gain not loss, success not failure,
in order that we never forget the price we paid,
because the future is nothing more than a string of todays.
