We come before you today to pray for your blessings upon this enormous facility, and the waters which reside next to it. May you use them to minister unto others, such as those poor folks down in Georgia who lack our aquatic resources. Be with the folks in Georgia, Lord.

Nourish this game against Austin Peay to our bodies, so that we may use those bodies to glorify you. Also, nourish "Tiny" Richardson's body, because it is immense and beautiful.

We thank you once again for the bounty of recruits you've seen fit to bless us with, Lord. Shepherd these young men, so that they may develop into first-round NFL Draft picks. They'll tithe those signing-bonus checks, Lord.
Amen. Now join us in singing along with this afternoon's special music.
