Dear Coaches Outreach Family,

Over the past couple of weeks, several have asked how to pray for the coaching community. We have listed some requests below.

Ways to pray for coaches and coaching couples:

  • Pray for closure - Spring sport coaches have been working all school year up to this point, only to have their season completely called off.
  • Pray for open communication - The lack of interaction coaches have right now with their athletes is creating a lot of anxiety about the future of their sport.
  • Pray for financial security - Many coaches’ spouses not in education are being furloughed or let go from their jobs. This is creating enormous financial stress and uncertainty.
  • Pray for effective mentoring - A coach’s first love for education is about his/her team! Online teaching, without the personal interaction, is very difficult for a coach or teacher who is in it for the kids.
  • Pray for peace and understanding - Some of our coaches’ spouses are in the health care profession and are having to get off to work each morning under very stressful circumstances.
  • Pray for a smooth transition, understanding and grace - Roles have changed.  The transition from working 70-80 hour weeks away from home to 24 hours a day at home is extremely hard on a marriage. In many cases the coach is the one staying home and holding the daily routine together with the kids, meal planning, etc.

Thank you for your prayers and love for Coaches Outreach. We are praying for all of you daily and know God will be glorified during these difficult times.  If you have a specific prayer request, please respond to this e-mail and we will pray!

 

God Bless,
