May Reflections I'm writing this whilst watching the Commonwealth Games. Sport brings people together, whether watching or participating, even with the rivalry between competitors. After all, these are known as the Friendly Games. We hear stories of dedication and perseverance, of families spending hours travelling to training sessions and competitions to support their youngsters, and see their pride as the sacrifices pay off in medals or personal best scores.
In Pakistan, where church activities are regularly monitored, Bible Society holds an annual sports festival in Lahore which provides a safe arena for evangelism. Along with the cricket, basketball, football and athletics there's prayer time, preaching and working with local communities to help them grow in confidence in their faith.
So this month we are asked to pray for the preparations for this year's sports festival and also for other events like the art competition that is also planned.
Let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. Hebrews 12:1 NIV DL
