Game Day Prayers

Game Day prayers for Super Bowl 52.

From pizza delivery to Monday morning alarm clocks for all those who forgot to ask off work, these Grotto prayers will get you and your team safely to the end zone of the Big Game.

Pre-Game:

For the pizza delivery folks whose grub is the fuel to our Game Day fire
Grotto Super Bowl 52 Prayers: "Prayer for a Safe Journey: Lord, be our guide and our protector on the journey we are about to take. Watch over us. Protect us from accidents. Keep us free from harm to body and soul. Lord, support us with your grace when we are tired. Help us be patient in any trouble which may come our way. Keep us always mindful of your presence and love. Amen"

For the safety of all players — Patriot and Eagle, alike
Super Bowl 52 Prayers: "Prayer to your guardian angel: Angel of God, my guardian dear, to whom God's love commits me here, ever this day, be at my side, to light and guard, rule and guide. Amen."

Halftime:

For new beginnings at the half
Super Bowl 52 Prayers: "In Thanksgiving for a Fresh Start prayer: Lord, into your hand I place this new beginning and thank you that in your strength this may be a fresh start that begins and continues with you, in Jesus' name I pray, Amen."

Remaining Minutes:

For when your team throws up that Hail Mary
Grotto Super Bowl 52 Prayers: "Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with you. Blessed are you among women and blessed is the fruit of your womb Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death. Amen."

End of Game:

For thanksgiving in victory
Grotto Super Bowl Prayers: "Glory Be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen."

For the humility of both winners and losers, on and off the field
Grotto Super Bowl 52 Prayers: "Litany of Humility: O Jesus! Meek and humble of heart, hear me. From the desire of being esteemed...from the desire of being honored...from the desire of being praised...Jesus, grant me the grace to desire it."

Monday Morning:

For all of us party-goers come Monday morning
Grotto Super Bowl 52 Prayers: "Act of Contrition: Oh, my God, I am sorry for my sins with all my heart. In choosing to do wrong and failing to do good, I have sinned against you whom I should love above all things. I firmly intend, with your help, to do penance, to sin no more, and to avoid whatever leads me to sin. Amen."

Other Prayer Intentions:

  • A prayer of Thanksgiving to the NFL for scheduling the Big Game (and all the party treats) after Whole30 January ends
  • For replays and stoppage time to stay at a minimum
  • For those in the nosebleeds to remember binoculars
  • For the right words of journalists who are running out of things to say about the Patriots and Eagles after 18 weeks of coverage
