Competing as an athlete requires physical and mental exercise. NC Speed Academy is a Christian-based organization so we also want our athletes to exercise spiritually and lean on God’s strength to run their races with excellence in Him.
Our Runner’s Prayer“God help to keep my body, mind and spirit in great condition this season. Please surround me with your grace and mercy keeping away all injuries. Help me to reach my individual goals in every practice and meet. Help me to be disciplined, training my body to do what it should.
God, you give strength to the weary and increase the power of the weak. Please grant me the strength to run the race as if to win, hurdle every obstacle set before me, jump and leap farther than ever before giving your name praise and thanks for the talent, ability and will to endure to the end. I can do all things through Jesus Christ who strengthens me. Amen.”
