A Runner’s Prayer

run to win

Lord Jesus,

The crown of righteousness awaits me. It requires that I deny myself, take up my cross, and follow you. I know that I no longer live, but you live within me. So, help me to┬ástrip off every weight that slows me down, especially the sin that so easily trips me up. And let me run with endurance the race that you’ve set before me.

May I continue to persevere, to rest when you call me to be still, and to drink from your living fountain when I am thirsty. May I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward. I can do all things through you who strengthens me, so there is nothing impossible for me to do, because I believe in you.

Amen.
