The Dream of Winning

Mrs Karen Brown July 02, 2016 0 0

Galatians 5:22

The fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness and self control.
Against such there is no law.

Lord, we all love to win. We love our favourite team to win. We love our chosen 'idols' to win. We're out for success.
But, Lord the fruit of the spirit is love.

Love means to love our neighbour as ourself. Lord fill us with love that as we compete we play with loving integrity.
Release in us the joy of knowing that it takes two teams to make a match and two people to play the game.

May your peace fill our beings with the knowledge that participating is as important as winning.
To have patience is hard when the game is difficult and much is demanded of us and winning is within reach.

Lord, in victory fill us with your kindness, goodness and respect for all who do not win.
Bring your gentleness and self control into every victory so that in the reality of the dream the victory may be the essence of community.
'For against such there is no law'
