Blessing of the Helmets

Pastors from the Vicksburg Ministry Alliance gathered members of the Vicksburg Varsity football team and two players from the Rocket football program before game time. They formed in a circle to bless the players and coaches in a Blessing of the Helmets ceremony.

The prayer was prepared by Father Tom Martin and went like this: “Father of all, we ask you to bless these helmets and those who wear them. May each athlete play well and safely. Shield each player, their teammates and opponents from harm and grace them with the joy of good sportsmanship in the midst of competition. We, the pastors of the Vicksburg churches, ask this in your holy name.”
