Prayer For The Morning After

Almighty and most merciful God,
we thank you that you did not allow the World Cup final to go to penalties
and that the whole ridiculous display of unwarranted tribalism
is over for another four years.
As we wait for the next opportunity for our team
to be sent home after the group stage
keep us constantly aware that,
although you are the real thing,
football (or soccer as some do call it)
is just a game and evermore shall be so,
world without end. Amen
and hopefully after today's vote,
Awomen too).
