Don't know if this works into a sermon, but I thought it was pretty cute - If nothing else, it made me grin!
From a Posting on the Saint Louis Cardinals' Rally Squirrel's page...
Prayer for Saturday night: "Our Father who art in St. Louis, Baseball be thy game. Thy will be done,the World Series will be won, on the field, as well as in the bullpen. Give us this day our hot bats & forgive us on our errors, as we forgive those who homerun against us. Lead us not into defeat, but...help us BEAT THE RANGERS. In the name of the best fans in baseball, Stan Musial, Bob Gibson, Roger Maris, Dizzy Dean, Albert Pujols, our Rally Squirrel, Fredbird, & the entire Cardinals team......AMEN"

The mission of St. John's Lutheran Church is to preach the Word of God in its purity and to teach this Word to all people. We do so through the means God has given us, the Sacraments of Holy Baptism and Holy Communion.
What We Believe
The Lutheran Church Missouri Synod accepts the Scriptures as the inspired and inerrant Word of God, and subscribes unconditionally to all the symbolical books of the Evangelical Lutheran Church as a true and unadulterated statement and exposition of the Word of God.
We accept the Confessions because they are drawn from the Word of God and on that account regard their doctrinal content as a true and binding exposition of Holy Scripture and as authoritative for all pastors, congregations and other rostered church workers of The Lutheran Church Missouri Synod.
