Team Omega Pharma-Lotto from Belgium has been fun to watch. Philippe Gibert has proven his worth and André Greipel gave us and exciting sprint finish just the other day. Along with their successes they have struggled with keeping all their team members. Three have had to go home. It will be a challenge to bring Gilbert to the podium in Paris, but not impossible. Pray for them as they stay strong to reach their goals for this tour.
Father we thank you for the nation of Belgium and for our brothers and sisters there. I pray that they will preserve when numbers get low just like team Lotto has done in the tour. We pray for Team Lotto, work in their lives and allow your story to be heard and received. Please, open doors in the cycling community so that Christians can share your love to those who love to ride. We pray in the power of the name of Jesus. Amen.
