Footballers have many obstacles to overcome before they score a goal or win a game. In life, we have many difficult situations. God gives us fortitude which is the strength to face life with courage and determination, believing that He will help us.

  • Take a football in your hands. If you do not have a football, draw a football on the sheet of paper.
  •  Think of some situations which made you feel scared or discouraged.
  • If you are outside or in a safe space, kick the football. As you do so, say a prayer to ask for God’s strength to face these situations.
  • You may write the prayer if you wish.
