Prayer for Debates

Heavenly Father

We thank you for your presence at our debating fixture.

Thank you for blessing each one of us with special gifts and talents.

Today I pray that as we participate in this debate we would develop our talent to present arguments and viewpoints in an acceptable respectful manner, and also learn to value the opinions of others.

Help every speaker to deal with their own substantive matter logically and sufficiently.

Bless the adjudicators, timekeepers and chairmen in the undertaking of the tasks assigned to them.

Let everything we do bring glory to your mighty name.
