A Basketball players prayer
As me and my team
gathered around, we
bowed our heads in
a quick prayer before
the game.

"Dear Lord please
protect us tonight
from any harm and
injury that may come
our way and please let
us beat the other team.
Amen."

and the Lord replied,
"I shall protect you
from injury and harm but
letting you beat the other
team, why I cannot do that,
for the other team are my children
also, so you are to try the best
that you can do. Have a fair
game."

And with those encouraging
words, we raced unto the court
and did the best we could do.

Well, now, our litte basketball player. God can't take sides sometimes. Oh Oh Oh, there is Ms Penguin looking for you.
