The best way to start is prayer.
This past week, players from both the Charlotte Lady Eagles and the Charlotte Eagles Men’s team started to arrive in Charlotte to begin training for their season. The Lady Eagles started practicing this past Monday, and the men will begin in just a few days. Yesterday, some players from both teams, as well as the Eagles office staff, participated in the National Day of Prayer sponsored by Coca Cola where many representatives took turns praying for different facets of everyday life.
As the Eagles, we would like to thank Coke for being our team sponsor, and for all that they’re doing to stand up for the fact that faith doesn’t stop at the church door but proceeds into business and into sports. Here is a concluding prayer…
We come to You in the Name that is above every name- Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. Our hearts cry out to You. Knowing that You are a prayer-answering, faithful God- the One we trust in times like these- we ask that You renew our spirits, revive our churches, and heal our land.
We repent of our sings and ask for Your grace and power to save us. Hear our cry, oh God, and pour out Your Spirit upon us that we may walk in obedience to Your Word. We are desperate for Your tender mercies. We are broken and humbled before You. Forgive us, and in the power of Your great love, lift us up to live in Your righteousness. We pray for our beloved nation. May we repent and return to You and be a light to the nations. And we pray for our leaders and ask that You give them wisdom and faith to follow You.
Preserve and protect us, for You are our refuge and only hope. Deliver us from all fears except to fear You, and may we courageously stand in the Truth that sets us free. We pray with expectant faith and grateful hearts.
In Jesus’ name, our Savior- Amen.
