Dear God, Please take this moment in my life and use me to give You glory and praise. 
Take my passion for this sport, may it light up with Your love. Take the hours of training 
and my commitment to excellence. Please use it to bring joy and inspiration to others.  
May You speak Your truth and hope through me in Jesus name,   Amen
      Shane Lowry
