“Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but only one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may win. Everyone who competes in the games exercises self- control in all things. They then do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable.” 1 Corinthians 9:24-25
We pray today for the U.S. Olympic Complex in Colorado Springs, the flagship training center for the U.S. Olympic Committee and the Olympic Training Center programs. Lord God, we pray for integrity and stewardship as our city hosts the USOC headquarters and over 15 other member organizations, as well as two international sports federations. We also pray that the athletes and trainers that live in our city to be part of the USOC would have a positive experience during their time among us, and that they would encounter the living Jesus and take His presence with them wherever they go from here.
