We thank you for your mercies. Please bestow your favor on the following gentlemen of the Atlanta Braves over the next 161 games, specifically those against other teams in the National League East.
May they stretch well in warmups, as to help avoid injury.
May they swing well, as to drive in many runs – specifically more runs than their opponents.
May they throw many strikes, as to get many opposing batters out, and to save fatigue.
May they catch many balls, as to prevent the opposition from scoring and/or driving in runs.
May they assume a quick, comfortable lead, as to prevent stress as a team, and to save my fingernails from being bitten down to the nub.
We pray these in Your holy name,
