Prayerful preparations: in sports and life

In interviews, reporters ask athletes about a number of things, but these inquiries don’t always include pregame mental preparation. That aspect, though, is actually a leading factor in sports—and all kinds of other endeavors, too. Time and time again, the world has been inspired by examples of how effective preparation can bring out excellence beyond what simple athleticism might help us achieve.

Does that mean that before practices and games we are just to sit there alone with our thoughts? Yes and no—there is a good kind of being alone and a bad, or limiting, kind.
