Prayer For TNF100

21 05 2009

Heavenly Father…

As I come to You today with a contrite spirit, Please forgive me first for sins that I have committed before You.

I’m asking for Your guidance and traveling mercy be upon me. While others are relying on their own speed, strength and agility, I will rely only upon You, for my full allegiance is for You and You alone.

Give me the strength to finish this race, to run with endurance and to test my limit. Protect me from any injuries, dangers, heat stroke, high blood pressure, skin cancer, danger from the trail and lahar sands, blisters, cramps, hunger, fatigue, wounds, and any untoward incidents that can happen.

I’m also praying for other runners who will participate in the 10k, 20k, 100k relay and 100k solo, the Northface, Finishline, the Race Director of this event Coach Rio dela Cruz, his staff, marshalls and everybody who will contribute to this event…that You guide them continually, give them wisdom and let Your power be also upon them.

I’m also praying for a clean and healthy competitions for this race, that there will be no drug-users, cheaters and runners who will leaf-frog from one place to another. Make us run like real men, with full dignity and honesty.

Father, I am confident that all of us will finish this race safe and sound, for I am dedicating this event to You, my Lord and Saviour.

Above all, let Your Will be done and not ours!

In Jesus Name I pray,



*note: I’ll be commuting for Sacobia Clark at 11am today to catch the 6pm Final Briefing, hoping to sleep elsewhere after that and by 2am, I’ll wait for the Shuttle bus going to Expo Filipino as the base camp. I’ll be back blogging right after the TNF100.

This is the race prayer that can beat all the race prayer! Sayang Ronnie ngayon ko lang nabasa to, I could have informed Coach Rio to look for you and lead the opening prayer there!

Take care pare!
