Prayer For Deliberation Of Honors

Loving heavenly Father we come to you this hour asking for your blessing and help as we are gathered together. We pray for guidance in the matters at hand and ask that you would clearly show us how to conduct our work with a spirit of joy and enthusiasm. Give us the desire to find ways to excel in our work. Help us to work together and encourage each other to excellence. We ask that we would challenge each other to reach higher and farther to be the best we can be. We ask this in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen

Our heavenly Father, we come before you today with humble hearts and with gratefulness for all the wonders and blessings You have showered upon us. We thank You Father for sustaining us from our first months of preparation up to this time of the day. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to be in this momentous event wherein we can showcase the wisdom and skills that only come from You. We consider this opportunity as a chance of being with other contestants all over the country, a chance of meeting new friends and a time of seeing old acquaintances from other competitions before. We thank you for our parents, teachers ,school administration members and friends who have taken their time to be with us all throughout, in presence or in prayers, to cheer us on whatever the outcome holds. Thank you for the facilitators whom you have planted the desire and the enthusiasm to hold such gratifying event which enables youths to experience the thrills of a healthy competition.

Father, this occasion is indeed one of those things we will take with us as we live our lives ahead. This exposure is not about the medals we will be receiving at the end of the day, nor about the one who will emerge as the best. This is about the great opportunity to be blessed by You and the chance to be dubbed as one of God's bests. This is also about the character honed in us during our trainings. Truly, discipline, perseverance, and the determination to excel are instilled in us abundantly. This is not about ranking one's self among bests, but this is about the humble heart of a person who is able to see how blessed he is despite the odds and difficulties along the way. Lord, we acknowledge that everything comes from You the God who orchestrates every second of our lives so perfectly because of His great love for us. All the praises, awards, and accolades that we will receive today are meant to be given back to You. It is because of Your grace and Your guidance that we have come this far. Whatever is set before us, we give all the glory back to You. Once again, we praise You and we thank You for the several months of successful events You have prearranged for us Father. Continue to bless each and every one of us as we commence the last phase of this race which is set before us. Equip us with Your wisdom and humility as we do our best for You. All of these we pray in the sweetest and mighty name of our Christ Jesus.
