A reflection on the Olympic Games

Reflections of the day

1 Corinthians 9:25-27

Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last, but we do it to get a crown that will last forever. Therefore I do not run like someone running aimlessly; I do not fight like a boxer beating the air. No, I strike a blow to my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize.

There is no other activity in life so important as that of prayer. Every other activity depends upon prayer for its best efficiency.”

M.E. Andross


A reflection on the Olympic Games

Heavenly Father,

We are thankful  for thou being with all of Mankind always. We acknowledge thou as the creator of thou world that we live in, and we acknowledge thou as the creator of all things known to Mankind, and we acknowledge thou as the creator of all things unseen by Mankind. We acknowledge that thou created all of Mankind to be equal in thou eyes.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we desire to uphold to thou the Games which are known as the Olympic Games. We desire to uphold to thou the works that are good of the committee of the Olympic Games, and we desire to uphold to thou the works that are good of many who are described as the trainers of athletes who compete in the Olympic Games, and we desire to uphold to thou the works that are good of thou athletes of the Olympic Games, and we desire to uphold to thou the works that are good of thou athletes of the Games known as the Paralympic Games, and we desire to uphold to thou the works that are good of all those who have volunteered to support the Olympic Games, and the Paralympic Games.

Heavenly Father, we ask thou to bless the Olympic Games, and the Paralympic Games, and it is at this time we ask thou to provide a number of opportunities before many to reflect upon a need to be what is described as sportsman-like, in all that is thought, and in all that is spake, and in all that is done.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that many who are described as athletes are ones who have an ability to persevere, and that this ability to persevere is one that is seen in the way thou athletes train, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that many of those who are described as athletes are ones who have a control, which is known by many as a self-control, and that this self-control is one which is seen in all that is done. We are able to see in a way that is clear that many of those who are described as athletes are ones who have an ability to endure, and this ability to endure is one that enables thou athletes to be ones who are able to be successful in what is done.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that thou desire is for all of Mankind to be at one with thou, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that in order for all of Mankind to be at one with thou, all of Mankind will need to have what is described as an ability to persevere, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that in order for all of Mankind to be at one with thou that all of Mankind will need to have what is described as an ability to have a self-control, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that in order for all of Mankind to be at one with thou, that all of Mankind will need to have what is described as an ability to endure. We are able to see in a way that is clear that in order for all of Mankind to be at one with thou, that all of Mankind will need to remain upon thou path, which is a path that is straight, and which is a path that is narrow, and which is a path that will lead toward thou light which is eternal, and in order for all of Mankind to remain upon thou path, all of Mankind will need to put aside what is worldly, and in order to put aside what is worldly, all of Mankind will need to have what is described as an ability to persevere, and in order to put aside what is worldly, all of Mankind will need to have what is described as an ability to have a self-control, and in order to put aside what is described as worldly, all of Mankind will need to have what is described as an ability to endure.

Heavenly Father, many are able to see in a way that is clear that a life with thou is one that is eternal, and many are able to see in a way that is clear that a life with thou, that is one that is eternal, means a self will need to be focused on thou always.

Heavenly Father, we ask thou to guide all of Mankind in a life that is daily, and we ask thou to guide all of Mankind to turn to thou always.

Heavenly Father, we uphold to thouself, Our Heavenly Father, all that hath been spake in thou name of thouself, Our Heavenly Father, and we uphold all that hath been spake in thou name of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, who is thou way, and who is thou truth, and who is thou life, and who is thou way to thou, and who together with thou Holy Spirit, reigns on most high, and is, and was, and will always be, thou most supreme, and thou most absolute power and being, that governs all who art of thou world that we live in, now and always, for evermore.

Amen.

    It is remarkable that , whilst nations have differences of opinion in numerous matters, the Olympic Games brings together their peoples, not only those who are competing for medals but the wider population who watch events at the various venues and the TV viewers who join in the excitement of the differing sports. A wonderful opportunity for world -wide friendship!
