Olympic Champion Prays For "Love of Christ who is more than gold" As we watched the excitement of the opening ceremonies igniting the 205 copper petals representing the competing nations, and the marathon TV coverage of the strength, skill and stamina of the Olympic athletes, may we join Olympic champion Ohuruogu in prayer. She prayed that "in a world where many are rejected and abused, we pray for a spirit of tolerance and acceptance, of humility and respect and for the health and safety of all. May we be lead towards the love of Christ who is more than gold, today and forever. Amen."
