Prayers - Injury
An injury can be devastating — especially for an elite, professional footballer. It may not be a “serious” injury — even a slight strain or tweak of a muscle can mean exclusion from playing of being put outside of the team’s plans. And small, niggling injuries can be deciders — word gets out that an athlete “struggles to stay healthy” or that one has a “problem staying fit.” Sometimes injury can occur and there aren’t good resources applied to healing and recovery, or an athlete may be dismissed or disregarded.
This prayer is for the one who is struggling to regain form or come back from an injury or pain that prevents playing and can leave someone feeling left out or demoralized.
