    A BADMINTON PRAYER
    By: Henry C. Daut

    LORD, bless me as I step into the COURT
    to play the game of BADMINTON.
    Allow me to have a good GRIP
    of the racket I will hold and the game I will play.
    Guide my every STEP as I move to cover every SHOT.
    Help me to deliver the best SERVICE
    to my fellowmen.
    Be it SHORT, LONG or even just a FLICK
    of a second.
    Give me the strength to CLEAR the way
    to reach greater heights.
    The power to SMASH all barriers that try to block
    the way to success.
    Grant that I may have the courage to RECEIVE
    the blows that may come my way.
    Increase my desire to DRIVE forward
    despite some failures.
    Let me not DROP my guard and become
    complacent because of little victories.
    Instead give me the speed to rush forward
    to NET greater results and
    go for the KILL to score.
    Not just in the game of BADMINTON,
    but more importantly in the
    real game of LIFE.
    Make every victory a reminder of bigger
    and stronger challenges ahead.
    Let every defeat become a learning experience
    that there is more to learn to become better
    and that I can also savor the joy of winning
    if I work hard to improve my game.
    Help me to understand that the person on the other side
    of the net is not just an opponent that I have to beat
    but a partner that will bring out my best in the contest.
    Finally, help me Lord to learn not just the lessons
    of the game but more importantly, the lessons of life
    that I may become an excellent badminton player,
    but more significantly a better person in life.
    Amen.

    Kindest regards,

    -Ajay-
