I’ve been a fan of Friday Night Lights from the very beginning. I love to hear Coach Taylor pray. (How often do we hear a main character on a TV show pray?) This prayer from a recent episode is the best pregame prayer I’ve ever heard:
Dear Lord, please allow these young men to safely pursue the height of their excellence tonight. And as a family allow them to achieve their goals with the gifts with which you have blessed them. Amen.
That sure beats asking God to help you beat the other team doesn’t it?
