Lord, we thank you for all that we have. Today, once again, we come to you to ask for your blessings. We know that without it, this contest would not become a success.
Bless all the organizers of this event, so that they would attain their objectives. May you allow all activities to flow smoothly.
Bless all contestants that they may fight honestly. Make them realize that it is the camaraderie and the sharing that is vital and not winning at all cost.
May all winners be humble in their triumph, and may all losers be gracious in their defeat.
For in the end, it is not whether we win or lose that counts but it is the sharing of your love amongst all of us.
These we ask in your mighty name.
