Prayer "in the zone"
Originally appeared on spirituality.com
With the opening of Wimbledon 2010 on June 21, I think back to earlier years, when my tennis partner and I had the thrill of being Ohio junior tennis doubles finalists twice. Now in my role as a tennis coach, I love to think about expressing God in tennis and all sports.
I’ve learned that whenever we endeavor to do our best, we reflect God’s qualities. Humble, prayerful motives reveal that God is the source of action, expressed in timing and consistent performance. Mary Baker Eddy touches on this spiritual pointer in Science and Health: “The Father in secret is unseen to the physical senses, but He knows all things and rewards according to motives, not according to speech” (p. 15).
