A Shotgun Prayer
O Great God of the Fairways, who has designed our lives from tee to green, your holy and blessed name is at the top of our leader board.
We thank you for the friendships and fellowship that we share today. May our swings land us on each green in regulation and draw us ever closer to the flagstick of your presence.
Give us this day a great round, where our drives soar down the center of the fairway, our irons grant us an approach, and our putts roll in.
Forgive us, Lord, when we are out of bounds, as we forgive others who hit into our fairways. Grant us the mulligan of your grace and confidence to swing again, trusting in the promise of new life through Christ our Lord’s death on the cross and His resurrection.
Deliver us from the hazards of play and penalty strokes, and lead us not into the woods, the water, or sand traps. For Thine is the Kingdom, the power, and the glory, forever and forever. Amen
