The 2012 London Olympic Games commence today.
We wish all who are taking part as sportsmen and women, judges and spectators a great festival of sport.
A prayer from Eurobishop Blog:
Eternal God, Giver of joy and source of all strength,
we pray for those who participate in the London Olympic and Paralympic games.
For the competitors and their loved ones, For the many thousands who support them,
and for those who welcome many people from many nations.
In a world where many are rejected and abused,
we pray for a spirit of tolerance and acceptance, of humility and respect and for the health and safety of all.
May we at the last be led towards the love of Christ who is more than gold, today and forever. Amen
Wishing everyone a lot of fun!
