A Bowler's Prayer

I ask God's blessing, as I bowl,
That He, my game will bless.
I ask not for a higher score
But strength to do my best.
I ask, that I might concentrate
On fundamental things.
So I'll achieve consistency
That only practice brings.
That He will still my shakiness,
And dry my sweaty palm;
That He will grant me confidence,
And give me peace and calm.
But more than this, help me to show
More friendliness and love;
For I know my strength and confidence,
Is a gift from God, above.
