Praise be to the LORD, who has not let us be torn by their teeth. We have escaped like a bird out of the fowler’s snare; the snare has been broken, and we have escaped. Our help is in the name of the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.~Psalms 124:14 NIV

I pray for Chubb and Hunter and for all athletes who are injured during practice and competition.
May You bless them with courage and strength.
Keep them from fear,
That they may know Your comfort in their anguish
and Your loving protection in the midst of pain.
I pray that the road to recovery may be swift.
Be with them through adversity that they may know Your presence,
and be lifted up with the graces they need in this time.
Grant them the graces they need to remain steadfast in the resolve
to overcome the challenges and obstacles they face.
May You grant them a spirit of fortitude,
and may You bless them in this time of need.
