Saint Sebastian is the patron saint of athletes (and archers) as well as the military. I offer up this prayer for a safe and awesome competition for these Olympic games.
Saint Sebastian and our Heavenly Father: thank you for giving us this wonderful tradition. Watch over all of the athletes as they utilize the incredible gifts you have given them and the hard work they have put in to get here. Help protect them from injury and give them strength and courage to be noble winners and honorable losers. Fill them with your awesome love and show them what they are truly capable of. Watch over all that are there to cheer, work, volunteer or participate. Thank you for keeping these games safe and clean. Inspire us all through these talented teams and individuals, that we may become better ourselves- that we may give more love and peace and hope.
