Prayer of the Day: London Olympics
Eternal God, giver of joy and source of all strength, we pray for those who prepare for and compete in the London Olympic and Paralympic games. In a world where many are rejected and abused, we pray for a spirit of gracious magnimity, humility, and respect and for the health and safety of all people. May we at the last be led toward the love of Christ who is more than gold, today and forever. Amen.
Adapted from a prayer by Rev Christopher Woods, Church of England
