Heavenly Father, I pray today for all athletes who participate in the Olympics in Rio. May everyone achieve their very best in their competitions. In this time of conflict between nations and factions around the globe may we celebrate God and His love which brings humankind together as one in Rio. His peace conquers conflict. His love is more powerful than hate. His grace empowers us to be our best on Earth and in Heaven because His Son, Jesus Christ,won the victory over evil and earned our place with Him in eternity.
