Sports–playing & praying

Something that I really love about Christian Science is its practicality and its healing power that brings results. Playing sports is one activity in my life where I can really demonstrate this. Sports is an area for spiritual growth, a place where we recognize our real spiritual sense and are led to “divine heights.”

During my high-school soccer season this fall, I was able to pray in many different situations and see results. For example, during tryouts I focused on keeping my thought uplifted and centered on God. I reminded myself that I was playing to “express, not impress.” By focusing on expressing God and all of His qualities that were mine as His reflection—and not worrying about impressing the coaches who were watching me—I played much better.
